Pytt i Panna – Swedish Hash

Erica.Bargmann's picture
For best results, try to dice the potatoes, onion, and leftover meat into uniform 1/4-inch pieces. The potatoes should be drained of any water and patted dry before cooking.
  Bacon slices 6
  Cooked potatoes 8 , peeled and diced into uniform pieces
  Onion 1 Medium, diced into uniform pieces to make about 1 cup
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Leftover meat 2 Cup (32 tbs), diced into uniform pieces (Lamb, Steak, Ham, Or Pork)
  Eggs 6

Finely dice bacon and fry over medium heat in large pan until crisp (cast iron works well for this). Remove cooked bacon from pan and drain off all but 4 Tbsp. bacon grease. Add diced potatoes to pan and stir-fry in bacon fat until browned and crisp; remove from pan. Melt butter in pan; add chopped onions and sauté just until limp. Add chopped meat and brown, about five minutes. Reduce heat to low; return bacon and potatoes to pan, mixing all ingredients together and heating until warm.
In separate pan, fry the eggs "sunny-side up." Transfer the hash to individual plates and crown with a fried egg on top of each serving.

I was actually reading a book where one of the main characters was Swedish and had decided to make this dish for an audition because he had applied at a restaurant. It sounded very good so I got in contact with one of my aunts who is half Swedish and asked her for this recipe. Its very simple and very filling!
