Mushrooms and Kale Hash with Poached Eggs {recipe}

Mushroom Kale Hash with Poached Eggs
This hash is nothing fancy, as breakfast never really should be. Just a simple stir-fried “hash” of mushrooms, kale and potatoes, topped with poached eggs.

Yes, this dish is very similar to one we’ve made in the past, but stir-frying this on the stovetop rather than roasting everything in the oven keeps the house cooler during these last few days of summer.

Mushroom Kale Hash with Poached Eggs

serves 4


2 large potatoes, scrubbed (but not rubbed), peeled, and cut into ½-inch dice
½ large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 pound small mushrooms (I used “baby bellas,” whatever those are)
1 large bunch kale, washed and chopped
olive oil for cooking
pinch each of dried basil, oregano and crushed chili peppers
about 4-5 sprigs fresh parsley, leaves chopped
salt and pepper to taste
8 large eggs, poached (or fried, whatever)


Bring a medium pot of water with about a teaspoon of salt to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until just before completely done, about 10 minutes. Drain water.

Heat about 2 tablespoons olive oil in large frying pan. Add onions and garlic and cook over medium heat until soft. Add cooked potatoes, turn up heat and cook until potatoes are crisped and brown.

Add mushrooms, kale, herbs/spices, and more oil if needed. Stir-fry until cooked through, about another 10 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Serve in individual bowls, each topped with 2 poached eggs. Sprinkle with pepper and chopped fresh parsley.

Looks delicious! Foraged some shaggy manes from the woods and I have some chard, so I’ll be doing a little adaptation.
