Georgia Peach & Tempeh Hash

Invariably when I tell someone I’m from Georgia they exclaim “A Georgia peach!”

 

This annoys the crap out of me.  Same goes for “Hot-lanta.”

What does not annoy me are actual Georgia peaches.  This time of year you can’t walk through a farmer’s market without passing a giant table filled with the fragrant fruit.

I’m a fan of using them in sweet concoctions like Peach Cobbler Chia Pudding, or for a strange-but-summery appetizer like this Peach Caprese Salad.  Having been there, done that, I decided to try something a little more ambitious this week.  A brinner.

GA Peach & Tempeh Hash

 

Standing in the fridge door, I had my own version of Chopped as the strange (but good) idea evolved.  Sweet, yet savory.  I wanted bacon but was unwilling to go to the store.  Tempeh is a good stand in for bacon!  Honey mustard sounded good with a hash, and I finally remembered the horseradish I need to use (it expired in 2013… clearly just a suggestion).

My Georgia peach needed to be used and it seemed to me that it would go well with honey mustard (it did).  The sweet from both the fruit and mustard balanced out the tang from the tempeh and horseradish.  It was entertaining without being distractingly confusing to my tongue.  #TWSS

Ga Peach & Tempeh Money Shot

 

When you obtain local eggs, you know they need to be placed on all the things.  Besides, how can you have a brinner without #yolkporn?

Don’t skip the egg.  It made for a lovely dressing that tied the whole thing together perfectly.  Like a symphony in mah mouth.

Georgia Peach & Tempeh Hash

Georgia Peach & Tempeh Hash

  • 2 tsp honey mustard
  • 2 tsp horseradish sauce
  • 6 oz tempeh, cubed
  • 1/4 C red onion, diced
  • 1 medium potato, cubed
  • 1 peach, diced
  • 2 eggs, fried

 

Preheat oven to 400.

In a small bowl, mix together mustard and horseradish.  Toss with tempeh cubes and spread evenly on a foil-lined baking sheet.  Baked 10-15 mins, stirring half way through.

Meanwhile, grease a large skillet (I used coconut oil) and heat over med-high heat.  Add the potato cubes and cook until they are tender and browned on the bottom, stirring occasionally (~15 mins).

Stir in onions and sauté onions until translucent (~5-6 mins).

Removed tempeh from oven and add to skillet along with peaches.  Cook until peaches are heated through (~2 mins).  Stir in any remaining horseradish sauce and with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.

Transfer the hash to plates, top with the fried eggs, and serve.

Makes 2 servings.

      It would be good without! You might want o more sauce though since you don’t have the yolk-syrup. ;)

    I looooove peaches, and being called a GA peach never bothered me when I lived there. However, after living in the Carolinas a while, I’ve decided that SC has better peaches, and that bugs the crap outta me!

      I love them grilled too! Any fruit, really. It gets that delicious caramelization on the outside!

    oooooh itz been too long since i’ve had a peach! st louis (obviously not a state lol) is known for gooey butter cake, imo’s pizza (thin crust), and toasted ravioli!

    Looks just peachy – had to. I don’t love horseradish, but you haven’t let me down yet so I’m sure this would be delicious! Chia pudding looks great, too, and was before I started reading – you should do the search terms thing again!!!! Definitely one of my favorite parts of looking at my analytics!

      Hahaha – that made me laugh. ;)

      I’ve had some good terms lately… I need to start collecting them again!

    Beer and donut pairing sounds awesome, can’t wait to see some pics! I’m going to a beer and cupcake pairing monday for philly beer week so I’ll have to compare. Philly is known for cheesesteaks and cream cheese, neither of which I’m a huge fan of, but oh well. Have fun this weekend!

    I have absolutely no idea what the “georgia peach” phrase is about, so you’ll never get that particular annoyance from me.

    Well I was totally going to go all Hotlanta on your ass at Blend, so there goes that. ;)

    I love the way these pictures came out. Gorgeous. Do me a favor. Be a peach and bring me one. I’ve got months before they ripen around here.
