Soft Boiled Egg with Home Fries

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

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
2 eggs

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.
