Prep time


Cooking time


Total time




  • 2 2 medium potatoes

  • ½ ½ medium onion

  • ¼ cup ¼ flour

  • salt and pepper

  • oil for frying

  • 3 3 eggs

  • tomato

  • grated cheddar cheese

  • chives or spring onion, chopped


  • Peel and shred the potatoes, place them in a pasta strainer and use a cloth to push the moisture out of them.
  • Finely dice the onion.
  • Mix the potato, onion, flour and one egg together. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Line a tray with cling wrap or baking paper or tinfoil.
  • Use your hands to make patty size rounds. Place these on the tray and allow them to sit in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up.
  • While your hash browns firm up slice your tomato, grate the cheese and finely chop chives or spring onion.
  • Heat oil in a pan on medium heat and add your hash browns. Flip them after about four minutes and cook until both sides have browned.
  • Fry two eggs, sunny side up.
  • Time to assemble! Put down a hash brown first and cover it with grated cheese.
  • Next add the sliced tomato, season and place an egg down.
  • Top with another hash brown, grated cheese and chives/spring onion. The cheese will go gooey and that runny egg yolk is like a dream come true.
