As many people say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! A good breakfast can get your day off to a great start but it can be all too easy with busy schedules and mouths to feed, to forget about looking after yourself. Time to make a nutritious breakfast in the morning is a luxury for most but on those days where you do find yourself with a little extra time, why not try out our simple breakfast hash recipe?

What you’ll need:

  • 2 Medium potatoes (diced into good chunks)
  • 2 Large tomatoes or a handful of cherry tomatoes (chopped into bitesize pieces)
  • 1 Onion (diced)
  • 2 Slices of unsmoked back bacon
  • 2 Medium eggs
  • Basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Mixed herbs
  • Garlic powder
  • Paprika
  • Drizzle of oil of your choice

(These amounts aim to serve 2, but just alter depending on how many people you’re feeding. This recipe is not about precision!)

Method:

  1. Begin with a large frying with a drizzle of oil in (I used coconut but whatever you have lying around would be fine).
  2. Put your diced potatoes and onion in the frying pan on a medium heat as these are the things that need the most cooking time.
  3. Once the potatoes have softened slightly, throw in your tomatoes.
  4. When you have a nice consistency coming along, move the other ingredients to the side of the pan and fry the bacon (if you want crispy bacon I’d recommend doing this in a separate pan or under the grill).
  5. Season the hash with a shake of mixed herbs, garlic powder and plenty of paprika! Add salt and pepper accordingly.
  6. When you’re happy with how your hash is looking, crack the eggs on top of the mixture. This will fry them whilst allowing the herbs and spices to marinate nicely.
  7. Once the eggs are cooked to your satisfaction, turn off the heat and add basil.
  8. Serve up, (you could eat this with toast if you like but I just opt for a slightly bigger portion instead), and voila you’re done!

Happy brunching!
