Leftover potato hash

Leftover potato hash

The perfect brunch dish to use up leftover roast potatoes and cooked vegetables from your fridge! We used leftover cooked kale, green beans and roasted peppers, but you can try out different flavour combinations!

You can also make this dish vegetarian by eliminating the bacon and using a vegetarian cheese.

Recipe

  1. Remember to defrost your meat. Defrost in the fridge and use within 24 hours, or in a microwave on ‘defrost’ directly before use. 

    This recipe works perfectly with frozen meat. Check what you have in your freezer and defrost meat thoroughly before cooking. If using defrosted cooked meat, you can only reheat this meat once so only cook what you can eat.
  2. Heat a little olive oil in an an ovenproof skillet or pan on medium heat.

  3. Add the onions and allow to cook for a couple of minutes, before adding the garlic and bacon.

  4. Fry for a couple of minutes allowing the edges of the bacon to start to crisp up, before adding the potatoes. Turn up the heat a little and cook for a couple of minutes.

  5. Add the cooked veg, season with salt and pepper and cook for a few more minutes.

  6. Add the grated cheese and mix through before removing from the heat.

  7. Make sure the hash is spread evenly across the base of the pan.

  8. Carefully crack the eggs on top of the dish before transferring to a preheated oven (190c / 170c fan) and cook for 8 minutes, or until the egg whites have set.

  9. Serve immediately!
