Garlic Butter Hash

Garlic Butter Hash

It’s the middle of the summer, yet I am craving warm comfort dishes. Saturday night I made braised short ribs that took nearly 3 hours in the oven. Monday night I made hanger steak chili that simmered for two hours. I even baked bread, well my bread maker baked it, but you get the point. Days like these when I feel the need for comfort food I am mostly thankful for that A/C. I find that I eat based on my mood and not necessarily the season. My husband is the same way and that makes our marriage so much better.

I’ve been meaning to share the recipe for this amazing Garlic Butter Hash for a while now. I boiled baby red potatoes first, then tossed them with butter, lots of garlic and fresh parsley. I love how crispy the skin becomes when you fry them afterwards, topped with eggs and jalapeños it was divine.

Have a great week friends.

    I’m so with you on the comfort foods. It doesn’t seem to matter to me that it’s going to be 88 tomorrow (in the general Niagara Falls area) where that is rare. I too, eat on mood, not what’s fashionable!! haha. I love love love these potatoes. Red potatoes are my favorite, but I’m willing to bet you could use new potatoes or even fingerling potatoes as well with this recipe. The eggs on top, that’s so perfect. I’m starving right now and want this but I guess eating past 9 isn’t a good idea so I’ll have to wait until tomorrow morning. And parsley goes so well with potatoes, doesn’t it? It’s a must-have for me!

    I also really appreciate how you didn’t scrimp out on the garlic, I think too many cooks use less garlic than they should =) Yours is perfect. Pinned!

    I agree with you. And my Hubby has had it with salads, salads, and more salads. He is beginning to give me THAT look when he sees another one. He likes his favorites regardless of whether it is fall, winter or summer……and it is not salads all the time. I also learned that I could lower his high cholesterol to low normal without a lot of salads and low fat all the time. If he does not get hardy meals then I catch him eating lots of sweets. Thanks for this hardy recipe.

    Stop making me jealous with your talk of having AC! Our new place doesn’t have any AC, which is totally fine except for about 10 days out of the year where it is just too hot to cope. I’ve been making us lots of salads, ha! No turning on the oven for me! But, our place only has 1 tiny wall heater, so in the winter I’m sure I’ll be doing nothing but turning the oven on to keep us warm.

    This potato hash looks delicious! I bet those potatoes are perfectly creamy on the inside, and crispy on the outside. Yum!

    It’s been super hot lately and thank goodness we have A/C too. I love a good hash and this one looks fantastic! So flavorful and crispy and with the fried egg, this is just the perfect comfort food!

    When I visited the states a few years back, I got caught out big time with what you guys call hash, now I had tried a couple of different types of hash, and they were delicious, so when I ordered it in Miami, my expectations were high. What arrived however was some partially fried potato wedges with raw onion chunks and about a kilo of cheese. Turned me right off, and I haven’t tried a hash recipe since. But BOOM! This hash recipe is brilliant, I can’t wait to try it, this weekend I will. :)

    I totally eat based on my mood in addition to the season. Thankfully, we get cool temps so running the oven isn’t a big deal here. We don’t have ac and it was 63 inside. 😀
    This definitely look like a dish my family would love. It looks so pretty and colorful!

    We make a version of this on the weekends in the winter. We use hot sauce, never thought about jalapenos. Really warms you up in the morning.
