Simple Potato Hash

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 lbs assorted potatoes I used a mix of potatoes and sweet potatoes from our CSA
  • Olive oil

Optional additions

  • eggs
  • hot sauce
  • shredded cheese
  • diced green or red peppers
  • diced beets or kohlrabi
  • diced cooked ham or steak


  • Dice the onion and cook in 2 tablespoons of oil in a deep pan over medium heat.
  • While the onion is cooking on medium, dice the potatoes. I like to keep my dice pretty small.
  • Add the potatoes (and any other vegetables you're using) to the pan. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook the potatoes for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally (but not too often or they won’t brown).
  • After 15 minutes, poke the potatoes with a fork. Serve when cooked through, topped with cheese or hot sauce, if you choose.
  • If you're serving eggs on top of your hash, turn the heat to low and cook your eggs.  Serve the eggs on top of the potatoes.
