Put an Egg on It

Everything is better with an egg on it.

Burgers? Absolutely.

Chili? Positively.

Salads? Completely.

Pancakes? Utterly.

Enchiladas? Definitely.

Fried Rice? Doubtlessly.

Biscuits and Gravy? Decidedly.

Asparagus? Categorically.

Plain old toast? Surely.

Pizza? Really.

There isn't much that I wouldn't put an egg on, and back in May at South Dakota Magazine, I shared Potato and Spinach Hash with Fried Eggs. As I said in that post, hash is a perfect pairing for eggs, and hash can take on many forms.

While I love potatoes and spinach, potatoes fried with onions and zucchini also makes a delicious base for the ever wonderful egg. I can't wait to cut into that runny yolk and let it stream over the vegetables like a delicious golden sauce. Everything truly is elevated when you put an egg on it.

(adapted from Everyday Food)

2 medium potatoes, sliced thinly
1/2 medium onion, sliced thinly
1 small zucchini, sliced thinly
2 tablespoons olive oil
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
4 eggs, sunny side up

In a large cast iron skillet, heat the oil.
Add the potatoes and onion and season with salt and pepper.
Cook, stirring frequently, until the potatoes are starting to brown and onions are softening.
Add the zucchini and cook, stirring frequently, until zucchini is tender.
Divide vegetables between 4 plates and top with the fried egg. 
Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately. (Serves 4)
