Ingredients

  • 40g unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 leek, sliced into 0.5cm rounds
  • 2 garlic cloves, bashed and roughly chopped
  • 2 fresh thyme sprigs or large pinch dried thyme
  • 250g leftover mixed roasted veg, larger pieces diced or sliced
  • 100g savoy cabbage, coarsely shredded
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 250g leftover mashed potato
  • 4 large free-range eggs
  • Vegetable oil or butter for frying
  • Handful flatleaf parsley, roughly chopped, to serve

Method

  1. Melt the 40g butter with the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the leek, garlic and thyme, then cook for 5-8 minutes until the leek begins to soften and take on a little colour. Add the roasted vegetables, cabbage and mustard, season well with salt and black pepper, then cook for a further 3-4 minutes until the cabbage begins to wilt.
  2. Add the mashed potato to the pan and mix well. Increase the heat to high and, using a wide spatula or potato masher, press down on the mixture to flatten it. Cook for 5-10 minutes on each side until crisp and golden (see tips).
  3. When the hash is almost ready, cook the eggs. Set another frying pan over a high heat and add a glug of vegetable oil or a knob of butter. Fry the eggs to your liking.
  4. Serve the hash straight from the pan alongside a fried egg and a sprinkling of parsley.

  1. To turn the hash with ease, invert it onto a large plate, then slide it back into the pan as you would with a Spanish tortilla.

    Next time, try any variety of mustard, cabbage and woody herbs in this dish.
