Servings 1


  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or olive oil
  • ½ finely diced onion
  • 1 small finely diced yellow potato any potato will work
  • 3 whole eggs you can use more if you wish
  • small pinch of salt to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons butter if needed oil works as well
  • big handful of baby spinach measure with your heart


  • Peel the potato, place it horizontally and cut into 5-6 round slices, take each slice and make lengthwise cuts, rotate it and dice into tiny cubes. The smaller the cubes are, the faster the potatoes will cook.
  • Peel and dice the onion finely, add a tablespoon of oil to a pan on the stove, and heat it up on medium-high.
  • Add the diced potatoes and onion, and add a pinch of salt. You can always taste and adjust for salt after they are cooked.
  • Sauté for 3-4 minutes as you stir the whole time. Reduce the heat to medium and put a lid on the potatoes. Be sure to check them every minute or so and make sure you stir as well so they don’t burn on the bottom.
  • The potatoes should be golden on the outside but soft and creamy on the inside. Once cooked, remove the potato hash from the pan.
  • In that same pan scramble the eggs on low heat. I like to move them around with a spatula and make them more creamy. My pan had leftover oil on it, so I didn’t need to add more.
  • Once scrambled, add a tiny pinch of salt and remove the eggs from the pan. I wipe the pan clean with a damp paper towel, add a touch of butter and add it back onto the heat. Add the baby spinach and sauté for 1-2 minutes until wilted and cooked. Add a tiny pinch of salt.
  • Plate everything together, add feta on top or hot sauce if you wish, and enjoy.


You can make as many eggs as your heart desires. Feel free to use egg-whites as well.
I didn’t have feta on hand but I would totally add good quality feta on top of this meal.
Feel free to use butter or oil for the baby spinach. I love the taste of butter more. You can also use salted butter and leave out the salt on the spinach and eggs all together.
Add a tiny pinch of salt to the eggs after they are cooked and spinach as well. You don’t want to overdo the salt as it can get super salty quickly.
Feel free to add any other veggies to the hash like mushrooms. You can also wild the spinach into the potato hash but I like to make it separately.

    I made this for my husband and myself this morning. I was out of spinach so I diced up a poblano pepper and it was delicious. He loved it and it was so easy and quick. Thank you for the recipe!
