Hashbrown Skillet with Veggies, Runny Egg, and Onion Dip

You know when you wake up Sunday morning craving something substantial yet low effort? Something warm, and creamy, but not *quite* as unhealthy as everything you enjoyed on Saturday? That’s how this skillet came about.

I love mixing veggies with potatoes for my hash dishes, and the broccoli and chard here were a great addition. Since I happened to have some caramelized onion dip from Trader Joe’s on hand, I topped everything with that, too. Add the runny fried egg in the middle and you are Sunday brunching in no time!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • About 2 cups chopped potatoes
  • About a cup of broccoli
  • A handful of chard leaves
  • 1 egg
  • Caramelized onion dip or other similar creamy savory dip for topping
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Estim. Prep & Cooking Time: about 15 mins

Steps:

  • Heat some oil in a medium-sized pan on medium heat.
  • While the pan warms, chop your potatoes and broccoli into 1/2 to 3/4 inch sized pieces. I used tiny potatoes, so I chopped them into quarters.
  • Then chop your chard leaves to once or twice so the leaves are smaller, but not too small. They’ll reduce in size as you cook.
  • Cook the garlic in your warm oil for about 2 minutes, until it begins to turn brown
  • Add the potatoes and and broccoli to the pan, season with salt and pepper, and cook for about 7 minutes, until all pieces start to get brown and crispy. Then add the chard and let cook for a minute or so.
  • Create a space in the center of the pan, and crack the egg into it. Season the egg with  a little bit of salt and pepper.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and allow everything to cook for 5-7 minutes more, until the egg whites have cooked but the yolk remains runny. (Keep an eye on the egg to make sure it doesn’t overcook. I like to gently wiggle the pan to check its runniness every so often)
  • When the egg is cooked to your liking, remove from heat. Top with a dollop (or several) of your creamy onion dip (or whatever dip you’re using), and serve while hot.
