Breakfast Hash Pie

This Breakfast Hash Pie is super versatile and makes for a healthy breakfast (or even a meal). It’s a great balance of plant based carbohydrate and protein and one of my go-to’s when I’m after a nourishing, easy to prepare meal.

Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 3 potato/s (large) or sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 1 tbsp butter or olive oil -for greasing dish
  • 1 red onion/s (small) finely diced
  • 10 free-range or organic egg/s
  • ½ tsp sea salt - or to taste
  • Ground black pepper -to taste
  • 4 rasher/s bacon -short cut
  • 30 g baby spinach -approx. (1 cup) or English spinach
  • 125 g mature cheddar cheese (1 cup) grated

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180ºC /350ºF (fan-forced).
  • Grate the potato and wring it in a clean cloth to remove the moisture.
  • Grease a baking dish (26 x 18cm approx.) with butter or olive oil and place the grated potato and red onion in it, tossing to roughly combine.
  • In a jug or blender beat the eggs and seasoning. 
  • Pour over the potato onion mix to cover.
  • Place the bacon on top, followed by the baby spinach and cheese.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the egg is set.
  • Slice and serve.

Thermomix

  • Preheat your oven to 180ºC /350ºF.
  • Grease your baking dish. 
  • Grate the cheese, 20 seconds, speed 6. Set aside.
  • Now roughly chop and then grate the potato, taking care not to over process it. 3 seconds, speed 8. Check the consistency and wring well (you can use the steamer basket for this). 
  • Chop the onion, 3 seconds, speed 6. 
  • Add the potato and onion to the baking dish and toss to mix.
  • Blend the eggs and seasoning 20 second, speed 4.
  • Assemble from point 5 in the regular method.

Serve

  • Serve with a leafy green salad and a nice tomato chutney.

Make-ahead

  • Re-heat in a low oven until just hot.

Store

  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. Can also be frozen.

Notes

Dairy-free

Replace the cheese with ¼ cup macadamia nuts ground up with ¼ cup nutritional yeast and a good pinch sea salt. Grease dish with olive oil.

Vegetarian

Simply omit the bacon. I like layering strips of red capsicum and a sprinkle of smoked paprika...it adds a lovely 'smokey' flavour.

Add more veggies

You can also add in florets of broccoli or grated carrot or zucchini (wring out the moisture) in with the egg/ potato layer.

Onion-free

Replace the onion with a small bulb of finely diced fennel.

Lunchbox slice

Leftovers are great in the lunchbox.
