From: EatingWell Magazine, September/October 2011

When we're in a hurry, we love to have breakfast for dinner. Precooked diced potatoes—available in the refrigerated section of most supermarkets—help make this pastrami hash ultra-fast. (If you have leftover cooked potatoes, use about 3 cups diced cooked potatoes instead.) Serve with rye toast and sautéed spinach.

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 16- to 18-ounce package precooked diced potatoes (peeled or unpeeled)
  • 1 large onion, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, diced

  • ¼ teaspoon plus a pinch of salt, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon plus a pinch of freshly ground pepper, divided

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and add potatoes, onion, bell pepper, paprika and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Stir to combine, then spread in an even layer in the pan and cook, undisturbed, for 3 minutes. Stir in pastrami, spread back into an even layer and cook undisturbed again until a crust starts to form on the bottom, about 5 minutes more. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.
  2. Just after you add the pastrami to the hash, coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Crack each egg into a small bowl and slip them, one at a time, into the skillet, taking care not to break the yolks. Season with the remaining pinch of salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook undisturbed for about 2 minutes for soft-set yolks.
  3. Divide the hash among 4 plates and top each serving with an egg.
