Adapted from Eating Well Sept/Oct 2014


5 cups unseasoned frozen shredded hash browns (see Tip)

1 medium red onion, thinly sliced

4 cloves garlic, sliced

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

6 cups chopped kale

1 cup shredded Gouda cheese, preferably smoked

4 large eggs


  1. Position a rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Combine hash browns, onion, garlic, oil, mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet. Roast for 10 minutes. Layer kale evenly over the potato mixture. Roast for 5 minutes. Stir the kale into the potatoes until combined. Continue roasting until the kale is tender and the potatoes are starting to brown, 4 to 6 minutes more.
  3. Carefully push the hash into 4 “nests” and make a well in the center of each, large enough for an egg. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese into each well, then carefully break 1 egg into each. Bake, rotating the pan 180 degrees about halfway through, until the whites are barely set, 7 to 11 minutes. (The eggs will continue to cook a little more out of the oven.)

Tip: Alternatively, boil potatoes until they can just be pierced with a fork but are not completely tender. Let cool slightly, then shred.
