Ed’s Easy Eats: Breakfast Hash

Up next in the series is Breakfast Hash.

Every student loves breakfast, especially a fry-up. Why not put it all in one pan and add some cheese?! Whilst the name ‘breakfast hash’ may imply that it must be the first meal of the day, this dish can be enjoyed perfectly at any point during the day, especially to nurse a hangover.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes


This recipe makes two to three servings.

3 eggs

3 hash browns or 2 potatoes


A handful of baby tomatoes

1 onion

Half a can of baked beans

Cheddar cheese


  • If you don’t have hash browns then cut up the potatoes and add them to the pan with a little oil and the crushed garlic.
  • Fry the potatoes until they are brown and golden. If you have frozen hash browns then defrost them in the oven and then cut them up.
  • Dice up the onion, add a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan, and cook the onion down in the pan until it has softened and appears translucent.
  • Add the potatoes back into the pan and mix them in with the onions.
  • Add the halved baby tomatoes around the pan and also dollop in the baked beans.
  • Finally, crack three eggs into the pan and then grate a good amount cheese across the top.
  • Place the pan in a 200 degrees pre-heated oven until the egg has cooked and the cheese has melted. It may not be the most pretty dish but it certainly makes up in taste.
