Roasted Potato, Delicata Squash, and Kale Hash with Fried Egg

 

This satisfying combination of seasonal vegetables and hash browns will have you looking forward to breakfast.

What you’ll need:

serves 4

  • 1 lb. potatoes, quartered. We used small, tri-color potatoes. Pro-tip: substitute frozen hash browns to save some prep-time.
  • 1 delicata squash. Slice into rings and remove seeds, leaving skin on, and dice into bite-sized pieces.
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into chunks
  • 6 oz. kale. Remove leaves from center stem, wash and dry well. Massage for 3-4 minutes with olive oil and a pinch of salt. This helps the kale roast more evenly and the olive oil makes it crispier.
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. olive or avocado oil
  • Fresh herbs, chopped. We used sage, rosemary, thyme and parsley.
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • crushed red pepper to taste

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 and line a baking sheet.

Place potatoes on baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast for 15-20 minutes.

Remove pan from oven and add squash and onion, toss with the partially cooked potatoes. Top with a few more drizzles of olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, crushed red pepper, and chopped herbs. Cook for another 20-25 minutes.

Remove from oven again and add kale, stirring to mix with the other vegetables. Return to oven for another 15-20 minutes until potatoes are browned and everything is cooked to your liking.

Portion into bowls and top with a fried egg.

This recipe can be adapted to whatever you have on-hand, so get creative with the vegetables you choose, crumble bacon on top, or even add cheese!
