This brussels sprouts hash and eggs is a great light lunch or side dish. The brussels sprouts get salty and tangy from the olive and lemon, then crispy and caramelized on the bottom. Mix in the little bit of fat from the egg yolk, and wow is this delicious. I make this often at food demonstrations and workshops and it is always a hit!

Ingredients
  • 4 cups brussels sprouts finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 6 olives finely chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Chop off the ends of the sprouts. Slice them in half, then finely shred each half. Place the shreds in a bowl and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Melt the butter in a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Swirl it around to coat the pan. Add the Brussels sprout shreds and garlic, then leave it to cook for about 1 minute. Mix it up and toss it around. Add the olives and mix again.
  3. Crack the eggs into separate areas of the pan. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Pour in 2 tablespoons of water and cover with a lid. Let the eggs steam, undisturbed, for 2 minutes.
  4. Once the whites of the eggs are cooked through, turn off the heat and sprinkle everything with lemon juice.
