In Russia we love our fried potatoes for dinner, it’s the manliest meal, easy and fast dinner (or zakuska for vodka!) for whole family (just add some homemade preserves – pickled tomatoes, cucumbers or sauerkraut in side), sometimes we ate it from one skillet… I found, what in USA, fried potato named “potato hash” and it’s breakfast food. And, you know, I love it too. This potato hash mixed with green asparagus and red pepper, very colorful and tasty dish, fried egg adds creamy taste for whole meal. Adapted from Eating Well.
Yield: 2 servings
1/2 lb. new or baby potatoes
1/2 bunch green asparagus, trimmed and cut in 1/2-inch pieces
1 small onion, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup red peppers, chopped
salt and pepper
2 large eggs
Cook potatoes until tender about 12 to 15 minutes, depending on size. When cool enough to handle, chop into 1/2-inch pieces.
Heat large skillet over medium heat, spray with cooking spray. Add asparagus and peppers and cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown, 5 minutes. Remove to a plate.
Add onion and the potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are browned, about 5 minutes. Return the asparagus and peppers to the pan, add salt and pepper to taste; cook, stirring, until heated through, about 1 minute more.
Serve with fried egg.
