This is a really easy recipe to do and is very tasty, I did make it twice and the second time I mashed the potato a litle bit and started getting a crust on the bottom, and made a dint in the mixture and put the eggs into the mixture with a lid on top until the eggs were cooked. Lazy cook who does not like to use more dishes than needed.

So yummy! I had a few more leftovers that I threw in, topped with an egg like you suggested and some avocado too. The perfect meal!!!

This is a good recipe. I have made it a few times. The first time I made it I didn't have any scallions so I substituted them with shallots. It was pretty good The second time I made it I followed the recipe using scallions and it was really good. Better than with the shallots for some reason. This recipe is easy to make. I made them for lunch today and added a couple of spoonfuls of canned green chillies but I really couln't taste them. I didn't put any eggs on it today like I did the first two times. This recipe is versatile because you can add things to it. I think next time I make it I will put some cheddar cheese on the hash. Good recipe Geema.
