Root Vegetable Hash Egg Skillet
This hearty recipe from “Naturally Ella” features many fall vegetables and can be served on its own for breakfast or as a side dish in a larger meal. Nearly every ingredient can be sourced from market. The Isabels and the Monicas have potatoes, sweet potatoes, and turnips, as do River Queen Greens. Star Nursery has garlic, and herbs can be bought from The Sprout Truckstop table and Mizell Farm. There are five vendors that sell eggs: VEGGI Co-Op, Pearl River Pastures, Indian Springs, Sprout, and White Sands Farms.

- ¼ red onion
- 1 small potato or sweet potato (about 5 ounces)
- 1 small turnip (about 5 ounces)
- 1 small carrot (about 4 ounces)
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
- 1 teaspoon dried dill
- Pinch of salt and pepper
- ¼ cup water
- 2 large eggs
- Feta cheese (for topping)
Dice onion, potato, turnip, and carrot in a ¼ inch dice. Finely mince garlic.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil, followed by onion. Let cook until fragrant, about 3 to 5 minutes. Then add garlic, tarragon, and dill; cook one minute more. Add potato, turnip, and carrot. Sauté 2 to 3 minutes, then add water and cover. Reduce heat to low and let steam for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the cover and let caramelize 3 to 5 minutes more.
Make a small well in the middle of the vegetables and crack eggs in the middle. Cover and let cook until eggs are set but yolks are still slightly runny, about 5 to 8 minutes.
