Crispy Potatoes with Green Beans & Eggs

  • Active Time 35m
  • Total Time 40m

4 servings

This is a one-skillet meal, reminiscent of diner fare at roadside restaurants across the U.S. It can be made with either leftover or raw potatoes. Even while making dinner in a hurry, don't rush this dish: you want to cook the potato cubes until they are crispy outside but still creamy inside.

ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh or cooked green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds boiling potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice, or 5 cups diced cooked potatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 large eggs
  • Pinch of paprika (optional)

directions

If using fresh green beans, cook in a large saucepan of boiling water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold running water.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium heat until hot enough to sizzle a piece of potato. Spread the potatoes in an even layer and cook, turning every few minutes with a wide spatula, until tender and browned, 15-20 minutes for raw potatoes, 10-12 minutes for cooked. Stir in the green beans, garlic, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper.

Crack each egg into a small bowl and slip them one at a time into the pan on top of the vegetables, spacing evenly. Cover and cook over medium heat until the whites are set and the yolks are cooked to your taste, 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle the eggs with paprika, if desired, and serve immediately.
