Potatoe, Fennel and Smoked Jalepeño Hash + Fried Eggs and Chimichurri

Last night's leftovers turned into this morning's breakfast. I'm not really into the philosophy that everything is better with an egg on top, but for breakfast, an egg can really transform your leftovers from dinner.

This morning I decided to use the leftover roasted potatoes, chimichurri, arugula and raw fennel from last night.

First, I sautéed an onion in a little olive oil and added in one of my favorite dried smoked jalepeños that my mom gets from the Santa Monica farmers' market. They are super spicy and have this really subtle smoky flavor that just kind of lingers in the background of whatever you put them with. After about 5 minutes, I added in some sliced fennel and about a tablespoon of butter and let that cook for another 2-3 minutes before adding in some roughly chopped leftover potatoes. Once the potatoes had warmed through, I turned off the heat and threw in a few handfuls of arugula to wilt. I then fried a few eggs and topped them with some of my chimichurri.

Best breakfast ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!
