This isn’t a real recipe, but I’ve eaten so many variations of this dish over the last couple of months that I just had to share it. It’s a perfectly simple weeknight dinner. This is how it goes for one person, but feel free to multiply as needed.

First, start with a potato. I’ve used both white and sweet, and either of them work well in this dish. Chop the potato, and steam the pieces either in the microwave or on the stove top. Then, heat about 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a frying pan, and saute the partially cooked potatoes for 10-15 minutes, until lightly browned.
Add about 1 cup of cooked green beans to the pan. You can use fresh or frozen, and you can cook them in the microwave or on the stove top. Stir the beans and potatoes together until combined. Gather them into a pile in the center of the pan.
Now, crack an egg into the center. Cover the pan, and cook for 5 minutes. Lift the cover, add shredded cheese, replace the cover, and cook for 1-2 additional minutes until the egg is set.

  1. yum! looks good.. and simple..

  2. Why didn't you bring this for lunch on Tuesday. I swear, I would have just asked for one little bite!

  3. @Lee, Funny enough, this dish is not nearly as good reheated for lunch. Something about the texture of the egg, but I'll make it for you someday in your kitchen or mine.
