Chicken Coop Hash Browns

Peppery fried chicken hash browns with an egg on top.


2 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons vegetable oil (or canola), divided

1 pound lean ground chicken

6 scallions

4 large potatoes, peeled

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon white pepper

1 teaspoon black pepper

4 eggs

      The Recipe

Melt butter and two tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet.  Add ground chicken and cook, breaking up with a fork just until pink is barely gone.  Meanwhile, slice scallions thinly, including a little green.  Also, shred potatoes in a food processor.  Add scallions to chicken and cook one minute.  Remove chicken mixture to a large bowl.  Add potatoes, salt and both peppers.

Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in same skillet.  Add potato mixture, spread out evenly and press down firmly with the back of a spatula or large spoon.  Cook over medium heat until bottom turns a deep brown, about 12 minutes.  Cut into quarters in pan and carefully turn each piece to brown second side.  While that side is cooking, fry 4 eggs in a little butter, lightly salted on top.  To serve, place an egg on top of each wedge of hash.  Good with chocolate milk.  Serves 4.
