Potato and Kale Hash with Poached Egg

Ahh, Spring.  The flowers are starting to bloom, the days are getting longer, the produce selection is greener, and the sun splashes through the windows, painting our rooms with vibrant color.  I love this time of year.

And there's more newness to celebrate - see the changes I've made to the blog?  New header, new background, and I have added print functionality!  You are now able to print off your favorite recipes from my blog.  I tried out a new effect on my photos, too - just for fun and because I felt like doing something different.  It won't be permanent.  Slowly but surely I'm making the changes I've been wanting to for soooo long.  Baby steps {literally}.

We're still awaiting the arrival of our little spring surprise.  The countdown is on.....and it won't be long.  I'm still amazed at the transformation my body has made over the past 9 months.  It's just plain cool that it has known what to do - and a little crazy to think that I've grown a human in my stomach.  But it's such a miracle!  I'm anxious to meet this little guy.

In between writing up birth plans, installing car seats, folding onesies, and cleaning and organizing every corner of this house like a mad woman, I've been nourishing this belly with flavors and combinations I never thought I ever would {curry, especially}.  But this recipe I'm sharing today is pretty classic - and easy.  It's another one of those that you can eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  I had a couple large baked potatoes left over from the weekend and decided that I would cube them and fry up with some onion and organic baby kale.  And because that sounded so boring, I poached a couple eggs and topped the whole deal with them.  Perfectly satisfying, perfectly easy.

Here's to all things Spring!  Happy Eating.

Ingredients Needed:
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp butter
2 large par-baked russet potatoes, cubed
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups baby kale {regular is fine, too}
4 poached eggs {or fried}
kosher salt and pepper to taste
crushed red pepper {optional}

In a large pan, heat oil and butter over medium heat.  Add onion and cook for 3-4 minutes until translucent.  Add garlic, followed by potatoes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Stir to combine and cook for about 5-7 minutes, until potatoes are crisp and brown.  Add kale, season with salt and pepper to taste and continue to cook another 2-3 minutes. 

Serve in individual bowls, each topped with 1-2 poached eggs.  Sprinkle with crushed red pepper, if desired.
