Breakfast for Dinner?

There’s nothing quite like breakfast for dinner.

Now some of you might ask what about breakfast at breakfast time? But for many of us, logistically, this doesn’t make sense. I mean, wake up earlier to make breakfast when I could be sleeping? How could you even suggest such a thing?

But after a long and hard day, when what you really want is something comforting and satisfying, breakfast seems like it could be just the thing.

Potato & Onion Hash with Sunny Side Up Egg
Serves 2
4 Medium Potatoes, diced
1 Onion, sliced thinly
1 Red Bell Pepper, Diced
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp Butter
3 tbsp Oil
2 Eggs

Place the diced potatoes in a microwave proof bowl. Cover and microwave on high for 5-7 minutes until the potatoes are fork tender.

Heat a large sautee pan on medium- high heat and add 1 tbsp of oil. Add onions and bell peppers. Sautee until soft. Remove the onions and bell peppers from the pan. Add the butter and the another tbsp of oil (still on medium-high heat). Toss in the potatoes into the pan, and cook until browned. Add the peppers and onions back into the mix and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the hash in a pile on 2 plates.

Heat another pan on medium heat with 1 tbsp of oil. Crack the eggs into the pan, then lower the heat to low and let cook, moving the eggs gently in the pan so it doesn’t stick. Season the egg with some salt and pepper. Once the eggs are cooked (the egg whites should be cooked and the egg yolks should still be wobbly and runny), slide the eggs onto the piles of hash.
What better to serve with this dish than a slice of homemade bread with butter and ham? I guess 2 slices??
