My mother made a variation of this dish every time she had leftover roast beef. The only difference was she didn't add eggs. I was so pleased to find this recipe because I had never been able to duplicate hers. Recipe & Photo:

    Heat 1 Tbsp. oil and 1 Tbsp. butter in the pan and add the potatoes. Brown one side without stirring, then flip, add the beef and onions to the pan and season with salt, ground black pepper, a pinch of dried marjoram and a pinch or two of caraway seeds.
  • 5
    Continue browning until heated through and crispy, stirring or flipping as needed. Add oil or butter as necessary.

    In another pan fry 4 eggs in butter.
