  1. To make the Root Veggie Fries: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl toss and coat the vegetables with olive oil and rosemary.
  3. Spread the vegetables in one layer on the baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Roast for 15 minutes and then remove from oven and turn the fries so that the cooked sides face up. Return to oven and roast for an additional 10-15 minutes or until tender and crispy on the edges.
  4. To make the Breakfast Hash: In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, warm 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until translucent and just starts to become golden. Add the Root Veggie Fries and diced tomato, ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper, and cook to warm veggies through. Turn heat down to medium if pan is too hot and add a couple spoons of water to regulate pan temperature as needed. 
  5. Create four wells in the vegetable mix and crack an egg into each one. Season with the remaining salt and pepper. Cover pan with a lid, and allow steam to cook eggs thorough, about 2 to 3 minutes. 
  6. Serve each portion with one egg and about 1 cup of veggies. Garnish with parsley as desired.

Chef Tips

This recipe is perfect for using up leftover cooked or uncooked vegetables you may have. Feel free to substitute equal portions of any cooked vegetables for the Root Veggie Fries if desired.

If you want to reheat cooked vegetables in the oven, preheat oven to 425 degrees and drizzle a little oil on top of vegetables to prevent them from drying out too much while reheating.
