  • 3-4 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 sweet potato peeled and cut into ½” dice (about 1 lb)
  • 2 Yukon Gold potatoes (1 lb), cut ½” dice (unpeeled)
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • ½ red pepper, diced
  • 1 cup corn
  • 4 oz smoked salmon, flaked (if you’re using pre-sliced then cut into dice)
  • 1 bunch scallions, chopped small
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tbs melted butter

Yield:  4 Servings


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Heat an ovenproof skillet over high heat – cast iron works the absolute best, but a non-stick pan does well too.  [Note:  Be sure to use a large enough pan so as not to overcrowd and steam the potatoes.]
  3. Add 3 tbs vegetable oil and both kinds of potatoes and season with half of the salt and pepper.
  4. Cook 10 minutes or until the potatoes begin to brown on all sides – shaking pan frequently during this process.
  5. Add the red onion and additional oil if needed and continue to cook until the potatoes are completely soft (10 minutes or so).
  6. Add the red pepper, corn, and smoked salmon and season with the remaining salt and pepper.
  7. Cook an additional 5 minutes, and then toss in 2/3 of the scallions and taste for seasoning.
  8. To bake the eggs, make indentations in the hash using the back of a large spoon and crack an egg into each “well”.
  9. Spoon melted butter over each egg and top with a bit of cracked black pepper.
  10. Place the pan into the oven and bake for 10-11 minutes, checking even earlier so as not to overcook the eggs.
  11. The eggs are done when the whites are just set but the yolks are still a bit loose inside.
  12. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with remaining scallions.
  13. Enjoy!


  • This recipe works great as individual servings.  Just place hot hash into ramekins, make the “well”, and continue directions from there.  [Note:  Cooking time may be quicker for the eggs.]
  • Any type of smoked fish may be used such as trout, haddock or whitefish.  Other substitutions can be ham or chopped bacon, cooked corned beef, or additional vegetables for a vegetarian version (this would be great with melted smoked cheese over the top).
  • This has can be made ahead, but needs to be reheated in the oven or on the stove before adding the eggs.
