Easy Like Sunday Morning
On Sunday mornings I enjoy making something simple yet satisfying.
Eggs always hit the spot… easy and delicious. This recipe is filling and uncomplicated. You can make it for a group or cut it in half to make for yourself (with leftovers of course!). You can stretch it by adding a simply dressed side salad (I recommend arugula, shaved pecorino olive oil and lemon juice). This recipe yeilds anywhere from 4-6 servings.
Farm FreshEggs Cracked Over Potato Hash:
3 1/2 – 4 cups baby potatoes (skin on) cut in 1/2 or 1/4 (bite size)
1 medium onion, diced
8oz shiitake mushrooms cut in 1/4 or 1/4 (bite size)
2 cups cherry tomatoes (mixed variety) cut in 1/2
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp fresh sage, finely chopped
Fresh cracked pepper
In a heavy (3 quart) or cast iron pan heat olive oil on medium heat. When hot and shimmering add potatoes and a pinch of salt. Lower heat and cover for ~6-10 minutes until potatoes almost cooked through (stir occasionally). Remove cover, increase heat to med/ high, cook until potatoes begin to brown. While the potatoes are cooking, crack eggs into 6 separate cups and put aside. Once browning begins, add onion, sage, small pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper. Cook until onions are translucent (browning is OK too). Add mushrooms + small pinch of salt + fresh ground pepper. Stir and cover for about 3 minutes. Remove lid, add tomatoes and their juices. Cook until tomatoes are soft, but still hold their form. Move the potato mixture around to form 6 small wells. Carefully add your eggs, seperately, into each well. Cook until whites start to set then cover for 1-2 minutes until whites are set and yolks are runny. Don’t be afraid to lightly tap the top of the eggs to see how far along they are. If the whites are still very watery, put the lid on for 30 seconds to a minute more. Once eggs are cooked to your liking, remove from stove, sprinkle with some fresh herbs such as parsley or chives and serve. Serve with hot red chili flakes, siracha or harissa on the side.
