Crispy Sage Potatoes with Fried Eggs

IHCC Donna Hay Badge resized 
This week, the Donna Hay cooks at I Heart Cooking Clubs are making breakfast dishes.  Instead of using my books, I went online and looked up breakfast recipes and found too many.  I printed several, knowing I could not make them all, but wanting to.

I don't think Donna Hay had ever failed me with her easy recipes and good combination of ingredients.  I knew, beforehand, I would love this recipe.  It has potatoes and eggs.  What could go wrong?  My hand slipped and it was a little too spicy but even my hubby who avoids spices, liked this.

This was another "late coming home" night and I rushed in, took off my shoes, dropped the groceries on the table and took out a frying pan.  In the middle, I realized I had forgotten to stop at another store so I turned off the stove and ran to do my errand.  I was late.

Hubby ran late which meant that I actually had dinner ready as he walked in the door.  Good timing.

crispy sage potatoes with fried eggs


2 tablespoons olive oil
400g  (starchy) potatoes, peeled and chopped
½ teaspoon dried chili flakes
sea salt and cracked black pepper
8 sage leaves
(I had no fresh sage but did have dried sage and used that,)
4 eggs


Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the potato, chilli, salt and pepper and cook for 4–5 minutes. Add the sage and cook for a further 4–5 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden. Move the potato to the sides and crack the eggs into the middle. Cook for 3–4 minutes or until the eggs are just set. Drizzle with Worcestershire sauce to serve. Serves 2.

Although, I made this for dinner, it is a breakfast recipe and if I had been on top of my game and cooked my Donna recipe earlier in the week, we would have had this, in the morning. I will just have to make it again.

Now, I want to make the French Toast and then I have some breads on the list.  Donna is going to keep me busy.

  8. I've totally fallen in love with sage this fall. I find myself wanting to add it to everything (and I am). I think the entire breakfast looks terrific, but I'm betting those potatoes are crispy, flavorful, and very comforting!

  9. Crispy potatoes, sage and eggs - talk about a marriage made in heaven!! This would be a great use for last night's leftover potatoes - I think I'l cook up extra tonight just to make sure there are leftovers!

  10. Wow, Chaya, now I'm confused...I didn't even look at the date of the delicious cake you posted, and just realized this post was your latest. I love a good hearty breakfast when time permits; but it has to be shared with family, and to me Sunday is the best leisurely day to make a wonderful eggs and crispy fried potatoes such as yours. I love sage in potatoes...fresh or dry, still has such great flavor!

  11. This looks perfect for a late supper. Anything with potatoes is always good. Thanks for sharing this one. Looks delicious.

  12. It's interesting to me that there are eggs and potatoes on your plate. My mom used to make an egg & potato dish for supper during Lent when we needed something meatless. I have to make these potatoes!
