Join your hosts Kurtis and Lee; as they cook some of their favourite recipes

This week: Hash!

In the first episode of Three Cooking Nerds, two members of the Three Angry Nerds Podcast (threeangrynerds.com) cook a recipe separately over the internet, but together. One host takes the reigns and the other follows suit. Watch as Kurt and Lee cook Hash.

Want to follow along? Here is the recipe:

2 lbs russet or yukon gold potatoes, peeled and chopped
(ALTERNATIVE: 1 lbs of russet or yukon gold potatoes, 1 lbs of sweet potatoes)
½ large onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
½ Cup Of any Protein (Bacon, Sausage, Ham, Chorizo, Corned Beef, etc)
½ tsp of ground Sage
4 large eggs
Fresh chives, minced
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper

Par boil your potatoes (skin on) for 5 min, then place in an ice bath. Remove skin and chop into ½” pieces. Also roughly chop your white onion and red bell pepper.

In a cast-iron skillet, cook a few slices of bacon (or desired meat) until crispy. Remove meat and set aside. If your meat produces grease, keep it, if not, add a tbsp of olive oil to the pan.

Add in the onions and red peppers and saute over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until softened and the onions develop color.

Add in the chopped potatoes and give a thorough toss, making sure the potatoes are evenly coated in fat. Press everything down into an even layer, and let sit over medium heat undisturbed for 2 minutes.

Using a firm sharp spatula, dig under the potatoes and flip them before patting them back down into an even layer. Let sit undisturbed for another 2 minutes. Repeat this process about 4 times, until everything is cooked, crisp, and browned.

Before the final flip, add in sage along with protein from earlier.

Give the hash a flip and thoroughly mix to combine before digging 4 small divots in the mixture. Crack in 4 eggs, one into each divot.

Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 4-5 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny.*

*(ALTERNATIVE: You can also cook this in a 400°F oven for 5-10 minutes until the egg whites are set). Just ensure that your pan can go in the oven!!!

In addition to kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, finish the potato hash with fresh minced chives.
