Dinner of Champions - Eggs Over Veggie Hash

most of the time i'm inspired to make a proper meal for dinner: rice, meat dish and then soup. that is the typical meal i had growing up, in either grandparent's or parent's house. actually, any typical vietnamese household. one night, i rebelled. partially because i was home alone (Nuria had a date) and partially because i didn't have much in the fridge to drum up two proper dishes. plus, i wanted something quick. breakfast is quick. so i made breakfast for dinner.

Eggs Over Veggie Hash
Inspired by Just Eat Food

1 potato, whatever kind you have handy, cubed
1 stalk of celery, diced into bite size chunks
1 carrot, skinned and diced into bite size chunks
1/2 small onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, diced
whatever spices you like and have handy:
cayenne pepper
italian seasoning
cumin
salt/pepper
olive oil

boil the potato, celery and carrot for a few minutes, till tender. drain. in a skillet, heat up the oil. then add in the onions, sauteeing till translucent. throw in the garlic till fragrant. next, add the veggies and cook till the potatoes have a nice brown color to it, the carrots and celery are soft but still with some bite to it. add seasoning at your leisure, according to taste.

in the same skillet (or if you have another pan), put the veggies to the side and cook your egg sunny side up (how i like it) or whichever way you want to.

serve with egg on top of mound of veggies.

  2. OMG this looks like a thing they have here in the UK called 'Bubble & Squeak' - I have NO IDEA why its called that - which is basically left over bits of veg like potato, celery, cabbage etc. I LOVE BUBBLE & SQUEAK and omg it would be sooo much better with a fried egg on top :)
