Potato and Onion Hash

Faggots

This post was first written in June 2013 and updated in June 2021.

You could whizz up the ingredients all the ingredients into a warming soup instead and take it with you in a flask if necessary. If you need more calories, top up with one or more of the weeks cakes and bakes

How To Make Potato and Onion Hash

Potato and Onion Hash - chopped veg

Put the potatoes, onions and carrots into a clean tea towel and squeeze out as much mixture as you can.

Combine all the vegetables, except the peas, in a bowl. Season and mix very well. Heat a pan with some oil in it. Put all the mixture in, cover with a lid and cook very slowly until a golden crust has formed.

Flip over as best you can, it’s pretty soft and doesn’t hold together very well. I generally flip it in pieces. Continue cooking until the second side is done and the potato is soft and cooked.

Meanwhile, grill the bacon to how you like it, and cook the peas

Serve with the bacon, peas and ketchup on the side

Variations

  • You could add the bacon into the hash before cooking.
  • Add any other vegetables you want to, the only base really is potato and onion.
  • If you aren’t at home to eat this, you could cook it beforehand and take to work cold in a lunchbox.
  • Or use all the same ingredients and make a lovely warming soup to take with you.

Ingredients

To Serve

  • 80 g bacon
  • 100 g peas

  • Heat a pan with some oil in it. Put all the mixture in, press it all down firmly, cover with a lid and cook very slowly until the onions are translucent and cooked through
  • Flip over sections with a fish slice, pressing down to keep sections whole if you can. I generally flip it over in pieces, it's pretty soft

    Delicious, don’t think I squeezed out enough liquid, I’ll know for next time, certainly will be having it again.

  3. Lesley

    You’re getting good at this

  4. Christopher

    I tried this and messed it up, but oh boy it tastes amazing (especially with a little bit of brown sauce.)

    I couldn’t find my grater so I chopped the potato into little chips with a mandoline so it didn’t really want to go together but it was amazing!

  5. Lesley

    ooh yes, butter would be lovely, and I will def try the paprika

  6. Tom (Edinburgh)

    Adding bacon to the rosti mix is a must! Also I like them fried in butter, gives a lovely golden crust, and a tsp of smoked paprika works very well. 😉

  7. Lesley

    Ooh, heartburn, not nice. It’s great to twiddle with recipes, you find what you really like that way.
    Glad you liked it 🙂

  8. Tom (Edinburgh)

    Absolutely delicious. I eased off on the onions a bit as eating that many onions is asking for a sleepless night of heartburn 😉
