I love a modern take on hash. If you look up the definition of hash, you get, “a dish of cooked meat cut into small pieces and cooked again, usually with potatoes.”. Um, I think I liked the definition in my head better before I looked that up.
I could’ve sworn that hash had eggs in it, although google thinks differently. Bummer. Anyway, all of my hash combos have eggs. That’s good news for you. Why? Because it’s a great meal for a non meat night.
I love this one because it’s a little old south, mixed with a new southwest, mixed with a little side of the road diner.
I cheated a little with this, I roasted the potatoes in the oven first. Caramelized onions take about the same time as roasting potatoes, so I thought I could take advantage of the time and get two things done at once.
This is another “make it your own” kind of dish. I kept it simple with salt and pepper and a little white cheddar on top. Here’s another vision though – southwest spices: chili powder, cumin, cilantro, salsa and guacamole.
- 2 pounds of yukon gold potatoes, sliced into rounds
- 1 medium white or yellow onion, sliced thin
- 1 medium red bell pepper, sliced thin
- 4 Tablespoons canola oil, divided
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 5 eggs (one per person)
- 1 cup white shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
- non-stick spray
- Preheat oven to 425ºF
- Slice potatoes into circles and place on a baking sheet - coat with 1-2 Tablespoons of canola oil
- Roast for 25-30 minutes
- While potatoes are in the oven, slice onion and place in a cast iron skillet or large skillet over low to medium heat with 2 Tablespoons of canola oil
- Allow onions to saute for 15 minutes and then add sliced red bell pepper with additional Tablespoon of canola oil if needed
- Saute onions and bell peppers for another 15 minutes and then add roasted potatoes from the oven and stir in ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- In a separate skillet coated with non-stick spray over medium heat, add eggs
- Cooked until the whites are cooked though or cook your eggs how you desire (ex: scrambled)
- Add to the top of the hash
- Top with cheddar cheese (optional)
Prepare 1 egg per person, adjust the recipe for more or less people
