Avocado & egg on a potato hash

I have never been a huge fan of going out to brunch. The odd time is great but there is something comforting about being at home in the morning on weekends. I’ve collected and created a good collection of brunch recipes because of this.

This recipe is a perfect balance of fried goodness and greens.

Recipe

Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 2 servings

Ingredients

Potato Hash
2 medium potatoes
2 tbsp of olive oil
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp of onion powder
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1/4 tsp of salt
Pepper to taste

Everything Else
2 eggs
2 cups of packed greens
1 avocado, diced
feta cheese

Directions:

  1. Wash potatoes then grate with a cheese grater. You do not need to peel the potatoes.
  2. Add potatoes to a bowl with olive oil, smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and salt. Mix well.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Use a cast iron pan if you have one but a regular skillet will also work.
  4. Pour potato mixture onto skillet and spread out to create a thin layer. Press firmly down on potatoes with spatula.
  5. Let the potatoes cook for 4 minutes, until crispy. Split the large potato hash in half, then flip and cook on the other side for an another 4 minutes. You want to ensure that the hash is cooked all the way through.
  6. While the hash is frying, cook the eggs to your preference. I recommend over easy to get a nice yolk drizzle on the hash.
  7. Split greens over two plates. Place potato hash on top of greens followed by the egg. Finish with adding the avocado and feta cheese.
  8. Serve & enjoy.

*Adding a slice or two of bacon on top of the hash would an excellent addition.

– Magical Properties –

Potatoes are often lumped into the bad food category but are quite the opposite. These delicious nuggets are a decent source of fibre & protein while also rich in Vitamin C, B6 and potassium. The more you process them, the lower their nutrient quality will become so aim to have them in whole food form more often. That doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a potato chip though (which is my favourite food, by the way).
Potatoes are one of the most versatile & delicious foods on the planet and I strongly encourage you to include them in your diet.
