Home fries can easily be adapted to whatever you may have in your fridge, add some bacon pieces, some finely chopped red pepper, or even some mushrooms. I generally boil the potatoes ahead of time the night before, as the whole process can seem a little more work for a breakfast meal when done all at once.
Serves 2 people
3 large potatoes
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 onion, finely chopped
Chop the potatoes in half and place in a large pot with a lid. Cover the potatoes in water and bring to the boil over a high heat.
When the potatoes come to the boil lower the heat so the water comes to a steady simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the potato is nice and tender when poked with a fork. Drain the potatoes and carefully chop into bitesize chunks.
Prepare the onion and gently fry in a large frying pan with a tablespoon of oil over a medium heat for about 2 minutes or until the onion softens and begins to take colour.
Add the potato pieces and fry on all sides for about 6-8 minutes or until the pieces are all nicely browned.
Place the two eggs into a small pot and cover with water and bring to the boil. When the water begins to boil, set a timer for 3 minutes.
After 3 minutes drain the eggs under cold water and serve alongside a generous portion of home fries.
