Inspired by my mother (about 60 years ago), Mario Batali, and many others who have "fooled around" with this dish!
This is a complete meal template meal all in one pan! Nothing to add!
This is one of the most versatile meal-in-a-pan dishes ever! You can substitute out any of the veggies for different veggies, which makes it really great. You can also use some cajun seasonings, etc.
I overshot on quantities of veggies when I made it a couple of days ago, so I wound up with leftovers, which made for a very quick breakfast bowl!
1 cup diced small hash browns
1 cup diced sweet mini peppers (just put the strips in your blender and let the blender do the chopping!)
1 diced small yellow onion
2 cups diced small mexican zucchini
1 can olives
Any other vegetables you want to include (mushrooms would be great in this)
1 jar + Trader Joe's Puttanesca Sauce or any marinara sauce or salsa if you'd like that flavor spin. I used 1 jar and about 1/3 cup out of a second jar.
Put enough oil of your choice to cover the surface in a large frying pan and heat for a minute or so.
Then dump all the ingredients above except the sauce into the pan and saute on medium until the veggies are softened up a bit (less than 10 minutes).
Put the sauce in with the rest of the ingredients, mix well, cover, and cook until bubbly.
Crack how many ever eggs you want to use on top of the mixture, cover, and cook until the eggs are the way you like it. Medium heat for 10 minutes gets me yolks that are still a bit loose; if you want eggs the consistency of almost hardboiled, give it about 15 minutes.
Dish it up and eat it!
LEFTOVERS!!!! QUICK AND EASY!
If you're cooking just for yourself, this is a great leftovers meal! Just put the leftover mixture (without the eggs) in a container in the refrigerator. The next day, simply spoon out enough for one meal into a pan, heat it until bubbly on the edges, then crack your 2-3 eggs on top, cover, and cook to the consistency you like for your eggs.
Here's my leftovers bowl.....kinda sloppy looking but very yummy!
