1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the shallots, bell pepper, and thyme. Cook, stirring often, for 4 minutes. Add chopped potato and sausage mixture with salt and black pepper. Cook without stirring for 4 minutes. With a wide metal spatula, turn the mixture over in pieces and let the undersides brown for 4 minutes more. Keep warm.

3. Divide the hash among 4 plates and top each with an egg and a dollop of the smoky mayonnaise. Sydney Oland
