Believe it or not, this is considered a German dish. I'm finding a lot of things my mother used to make turn out to be German in origin. Talk about comfort food!

How to Make FRIED POTATOES WITH POACHED EGGS

Step-by-Step

  • 1Fill a large saucepan with water, add the potatoes and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Lower to a simmer and cook about 20 minutes. Potatoes should only be parboiled at this point. Drain. Transfer to a small baking sheet and freeze for 1 hour.
  • 2Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet until crispy and most of the fat has been rendered, about 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel and crumble. Pour the bacon fat from the pan into a heatproof bowl and set aside.
  • 3Whisk together 3 Tbsp. of the vinegar and the mustard in a small bowl. Slowly stream in 1/4 cup of the hot bacon fat, whisking until well blended. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 4Remove the potatoes from the freezer and cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
  • 5Pour about 1-1/2 inches of water and the remaining vinegar into a large skillet and bring to a slow simmer.
  • 6Meanwhile, heat 3 Tbsp. of the reserved bacon fat and the canola oil in the same skillet used for the bacon over medium heat. Add the red onions and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • 7Then add the potatoes. Season liberally with salt and pepper and saute until the potatoes are just cooked through, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Turn the heat to medium-high and continue cooking until the potatoes are browned and crispy, stirring frequently, about 8 minutes longer.
  • 8Transfer the potatoes to a preheated 400-degree oven while you poach the eggs.
  • 9Crack the eggs one at a time into a cup, and then carefully slide each into the simmering water. Cook until firm, turning occasionally with a slotted spoon, for 3 to 5 minutes, and then transfer to a kitchen towel-lined plate with the slotted spoon. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 10Toss the potatoes with the mustard-bacon vinaigrette and serve topped with the poached eggs and garnished with the reserved bacon and chives.
