Perfect for breakfast-for-dinner lovers, this potato hash topped with eggs is a comforting meal for a frosty evening or holiday brunch. Serve with focaccia bread and salad, if desired.
1-1/2 lb (680 g) mini white potatoes
2 tsp (10 mL) olive oil
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 sweet red pepper, thinly sliced
3 cups (750 mL) coarsely shredded Swiss chard, (rainbow or green)
1 cup (250 mL) shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
In large pot of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until fork-tender, about 12 minutes. Drain; let cool slightly and cut into quarters.
Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tsp of the oil over medium-low heat; cook onion, stirring often, until softened and caramelized, adding 1 tbsp water to pan if browning too quickly, about 10 minutes. Remove from pan; set aside.
In same skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; cook potatoes, stirring frequently, until light golden, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with half each of the salt and pepper. Add garlic and red pepper; cook over medium heat until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Add chard and reserved onion; cook until chard is wilted, about 2 minutes. Stir in cheese until melted. Remove from pan and keep warm.
Wipe skillet clean. Add remaining oil; cook eggs over medium heat until whites are set but yolks are still runny, about 3 minutes, or until desired doneness. Sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper.
Serve eggs over hash.
