  • New Potato Medley  quartered (roughly 2 cups)
  • 1/4 Onion sliced
  • 1/8 cup Oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp. Fresh rosemary leaves minced
  • 6 Oz Ground Italian Sausage mild
  • 5-6 Organic Large Eggs


  • Chives or Scallions


  1. Cut the potatoes in quarters and place in a bowl with salt, pepper; toss until the potatoes are well coated. Heat oil and drop potatoes carefully few at the time. Flip potatoes several times with tongs during cooking to ensure even browning. About halfway through add sliced onion and mix until everything is completely done. Potatoes should be crispy. Sprinkle minced fresh rosemary leaves. Spoon out unwanted oil, if you wish. (Read notes*)
  2. While potatoes are cooking, in the other frying pan, saute on medium-high heat, seasoned ground Italian sausage for a few minutes or until it is no longer pink/bloody.
  3. Add sauteed ground Italian sausage on the potatoes and onion. Mix it very well and break eggs (sunny side up), add few dashes of salt to season eggs. Try to go in between, allowing the egg whites to go all around and under potatoes and sausage, try not to break egg yolks. Once the egg whites are getting almost cooked, turn on the oven broiler on high, and oven baking rack set in the middle.
  4. Place skillet in the oven, under the broiler and let it cook for a minute or two, just so the egg whites could be completely cooked; Egg yolks going to be still a little runny/soft. If you do not like runny/soft eggs just let it cook under broiler longer. If you do not have a heavy skillet, use a regular frying pan, but make sure to wrap panhandle really well with heavy duty aluminum foil (last pic.)
  5. Sprinkle chopped Chives or Scallions on the end and dig in!

Recipe Notes

  • You do NOT need a skillet for this. Like I said, just wrap a handle and you're good to go. Preparation and Cooking time it also depends on a cook. For me, this was done in 20 minutes from start to finish, but I multitask, and that's why I added approximately.
  • Take your time, and don't burn yourself! Also with this combo, you can add mushrooms, spinach, kale etc.
  • Make sure NOT to overcrowd the pan with potatoes. If you have fewer people, use less ingredients and you can use a large frying pan/skillet or smaller. It's best if you use enough potatoes that will cover the bottom of the pan and in one layer.
  • 2 Cups of potatoes were just enough for my frying pan, but you can add more or less!!! Before cooking, you can actually add quartered potatoes in a clean frying pan and measure that way, too.
  • If you have leftovers food, place it in the airtight container and eat the next day (heat it through, though). Ground Italian Sausage is already seasoned, so no need for you to add any seasonings.
  • I used a nonstick frying pan and didn't add any oil. Add more or less eggs, depending on how many people. 5-6 eggs are plenty for 4 people, together with all the potatoes and sausage. Also, depends on the depth and size of your pan/skillet. If you do not like sunny side up eggs, break eggs and mix it together with everything.
