Pepperoni Potato Hash
by Hellers - NZ's Butchers
Another version of a great potato hash cake for you. It’s so simple and an easy way to sneak in some vegetables if the kids are fussy!
Ingredients:
  • 1.2kg mashed potato warmed
  • 2 packs Hellers Pepperoni sliced into strips
  • 1 courgette grated
  • 2 spring onions finely chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh chives
  • ½ cup grated parmesan
  • 2 eggs beaten lightly
  • 4-6 eggs to serve
  • Sea salt and cracked pepper
  • Cooking oil
  • Butter
Instructions:

1. Into a large bowl place the warm mashed potato, 1 packet of the sliced pepperoni [reserve the rest for garnish later], courgette, parsley, chives, parmesan, beaten eggs and 1 of the chopped spring onions [reserve the other for garnish]. Season well and mix thoroughly.

2. In a large fry pan over medium heat add a little oil and gently fry the remaining pepperoni for 2-3 mins until crisp. Remove onto a plate and set aside somewhere warm.

3. Add a little more cooking oil and a knob of butter to the fry pan and divide the hash mixture into 4-6 servings. Fry them gently for several minutes on each side and then place onto individual plates. Serve with a fried egg and a generous sprinkling of crispy pepperoni and spring onions to garnish.
