Cook this hash until it’s golden brown and crusty on the bottom, then top with eggs for a bonus start to the day. Sub in other veggies as you’d like and maybe toss in some chopped fresh garlic with the leeks.


  1. Place potatoes and squash in a large glass bowl; cover and microwave on high about 4 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add leeks; sauté about 2 minutes.

  3. Add remaining oil to skillet; stir in par-cooked potatoes and squash. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in mushrooms and chicken; cook and stir 5 minutes longer. Cook to internal temp of 165°F.

  4. Add kale to skillet; cover pan and cook until wilted. Continue cooking until hash is browned.

  5. Make 4 wells in the center of the hash; crack an egg into each well. Reduce heat to medium and cook about 5 minutes or until eggs are set. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and more freshly ground pepper.
