Last week I bought a pretty large package of potato hash browns. You know the ones, they are frozen into a patty. So this morning I broke out the air fryer and put a couple in. This morning is just my husband and myself which was a good thing as I opened the carton of eggs and there were only 2. Glad I didn’t have a different plan or started throwing ingredients together that required more than 2 eggs; it’s happened before.
I fried up 2 pieces of bacon, I know that sounds funny to me to. Who only cooks the exact amount of bacon needed, I mean you need a tester piece right? My favorite type of egg is poached. Honestly I really only like poached eggs. I can tolerate other cooking methods but my go-to is definitely poached. Some might why away from poaching, it is a little more technical than a fried egg but I believe in you, you got this.
Hash Brown Toast
- 1 air fryer
- 2 frozen hash brown patties
- 2 large eggs poached
- 2 pieces Bacon sliced in half and cooked to crsipy
- in a small sauce pan fill ¾ full of water over medium heat bring the water to a slow rolling boil. When the water is boiling crack and add one egg at a time. To have a runny yolk and set whites it should be 3-4 minutes. This will depend on how boiling your water is. Using a slotted spoon you can check on your egg by lifting it out of the water and seeing how it jiggles. It may take a tester or two to get them perfectly but once you know what you are looking for. You should be all set for life.
- Place the hash browns in the air fryer, I turned mine on for 10 minutes initially and then for another 5 minutes just before serving.
- Cut each piece of bacon in half and add to a small fry pan, cooking till crispy. Set aside on some paper towel
- Assemble by placing the crispy hashbrown on the bottom, place the 2 small pieces of crispy bacon and then a runny poached egg on top. Season with salt and pepper and serve warm.
Poached egg for show
- If you are working in a restaurant or trying to win some contest you can add a splash of vinegar to the water. Also when you are adding each egg you could, using a spoon swirl the water to make a whirlpool so the egg whites are a little more tighter. I've made them both ways and I am Ok with just adding the eggs to the boiling water and let them do their thing.
