#ChipotleEggs

1 Jul


Ok, so technically this dish was Chipotle Egg Hash but I could not resist playing on that by hash-tagging it. Get it? I am too easily amused.
This dish intrigued me because
a)Who ever heard of sauteeing hard-boiled eggs?The cookbook-writing love of my life Mark Bittman, that’s who. Crazy!
b)chipotles. spicy. num. all in lower-caps for some reason.
c)Before I became a vegetarian at the age of 12 hash of the corned beef variety was one of the few meat dishes I really dug.

This dish totally rocked. Adding chipotles was a variation on the original recipe, which I am going to give a whirl, as well as a couple of the other variations, methinks. In the meantime, try this because it is easy and awesome.
Chipotle Egg Hash(slightly adapted from How to Cook Everything Vegetarian by Mark Bittman)
olive oil spray
2 tsp. butter, divided
1 white potato
salt
freshly ground pepper
2 hard-boiled eggs
1 tsp. chopped garlic
2 Tbsp. green onions
1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
cilantro

Dice potato. Spray a skillet with olive oil and melt 1 teaspoon butter over medium high heat. Add potato, salt and freshly ground pepper and cook about five minutes undisturbed then stir, turn heat to medium and cook until browned, about 10 minutes. Add a splash of water to pan, scrape up any tasty browned bits, transfer all to a plate.
Separate whites and yolks. Mash yolks with the chipotle and chop whites into big chunks. Melt 1 teaspoon butter over medium-high, add whites and cook undisturbed until they are browning and sizzling. Add salt and freshly ground pepper. Stir, add garlic and cook a bit more. Stir in potatoes and green onion and cook a bit more. Lastly stir in yolk mixture. Garnish with cilantro. Don’t forget the cilantro. Unless you are one of those nutjobs who does not care for it. Kidding. You are not a nutjob, but you are missing out.

    […] quite as toothsome as this succulent one. Less spicy than this one. Easier to make than this […]
