Fried Egg Topped Prime Rib Breakfast Hash

This Prime Rib Breakfast Hash is a great way to use up leftovers. Use leftover potatoes and prime rib from dinner  to create an insanely delicious hash, then top with a fried egg. This breakfast will no doubt satisfy you! 

Yeah, so this happened.

Kind of by accident. Kind of not.

Prime Rib Breakfast Hash l

So remember when I was up to my eyeballs in prime rib? Well I woke up at 6:30 am last Saturday morning … out of a deep sleep thinking about hash. I know! Who the heck does that?

Well, I guess… I do.

So as I lay there in pitch darkness, I cataloged the ingredients I had in my kitchen.

Potatoes left over from Christmas Eve… check

Eggs… check.

Prime rib… checkity-check!

I was so excited I almost didn’t fall back to sleep {almost}. At 9am on the dot my eyes flicked open and I hopped out of bed and whipped up breakfast while everyone was still asleep… in under an hour. PS: I love that my girls sleep in… totes awesome.

peel and quarter

So start by peeling and quartering 3 to four medium potatoes. I’m using Yukon gold potatoes and NOT russet because these potatoes tend to be softer and in my unprofessional opinion… cook more quickly than russets.


Then cube those into uniform pieces.

diced yellow onion

Annnnd dice up a medium yellow onion. Do you spy my… bacon fat? šŸ™‚

bacon fat!

Melt two tablespoons of bacon fat in a large 10 inch skillet on medium-high heat. If you don’t have the bacon fat then go ahead and use butter.

throw in taters

Once the pan is good and hot, reduce the temp to medium and drop in the taters. They should make a sizzle-sizzle sound. Give those about 5 minutes to create a good crusty sear.

throw in onions

Now throw in the diced onion and sprinkle with a good pinch of kosher salt.

starting to brown

Give everything a good stir and spread the potatoes and onions back out evenly in the pan and continue to cook until the potatoes are fork tender, which is about 10-15 minutes. Stir those babies occasionally!

Meanwhile those where cooking I…

prime rib baby

Diced up that prime rib… ohhh lord this is gonna be good!

green onion and fresh parsley

And I also sliced up three green onions (or 1 heaping tablespoon) and roughly chopped up fresh parsley.

garlic time

Then smash up a couple of cloves of fresh garlic, give it a good mincing and add it into the pan with the potatoes. Stir and cook the garlic for a minute or two until fragrant.

add in the cubed prime rib

Add in the cubed prime rib. Ya know you could of course use leftover steak or roast anything, just as long as it’s tender and beefy ;). Come to think of it… venison roast would be yummy as well!


Sprinkle in about 3/4 teaspoon of paprika. This will give the hash a beautiful orange-y color.


Add in a half teaspoon of dried thyme.


See after cooking all those potatoes and onions, there will be a little browned crispy bits that adhere to the bottom of your pan. Not to worry, add 1/3 cup of water to the pan and scrape those suckers up.


See, beauteous maximus. But we’re not done here.

add in the fresh parsley and green onions

Add in the chopped green onion and parsley. This gives all this hash-ness some freshness.

S&P and stirrrr it up

Season the entire pan of prime rib breakfast hash with kosher salt and black pepper, to taste… naturally.

fried egg

Turn the burner on the hash down to low and quickly fry up a 4 eggs. If you’re looking for a good and simple fried egg recipe click here… just don’t judge the lack of photography skills goin’ on.

Fried Eggs over Breakfast Hash

Fried Eggs over Breakfast Hash
Put leftover prime rib to good use by adding it to hearty breakfast that is sure to fill you up!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 2 tablespoon bacon fat or butter
  • 3-4 medium yellow potatoes, peeled, quartered and diced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 small green onions, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper
  • 2 cups left over prime rib (steak or roast can be substituted)
  • 4 fried eggs


  1. Add bacon fat or butter to a large skillet over medium/high heat.
  2. Once the pan is good and hot, reduce the heat to medium and add in cubed potatoes. Cook for 5 minutes undisturbed.
  3. Then add in the diced onions and a good pinch of kosher salt. Stir and cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until onions are soft and the potatoes are fork tender and golden.
  4. Throw in the minced garlic and cook for a minute or two.
  5. Throw in the cubed meat of your choice, paprika and thyme. Stir and then de-glaze the pan with a 1/3 cup of water scraping up those bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.
  6. Check potatoes for salt, otherwise season with black pepper to taste.
  7. Lastly throw in the minced green onion and chopped parsley, stir and reduce the heat to low and keep warm while frying up 4 eggs.



I fry my eggs up in a large pan over medium heat with a little butter or bacon fat. I flip once the egg whites are set for a few seconds to cook the top of the egg. I like a runny egg, but you cook them the way you like. I also season my fried eggs with black pepper and homemade season salt which can be found in my cookbook.

    This looks really good, especially for a weekend lazy kind of breakfast. I don’t normally have left over prime rib, so ham? I’m thinking that would do the trick, too.

      Oh yes! Ham would be fabulous in this!

    This is awesome. I always end up making breakfast hash when it’s time to clean out the fridge. And everything is better with an egg on top!

    yuuuuuum! yumity yum yum! Totally not weird that you woke up at the butt crack of dawn thinking about hash – happened to me a time or two as well. I love hashes not only because they make a hearty delicious breakfast but also because they’re great for using up leftovers. Have a great weekend, my dear!

    I have leftover potatoes, but not meat. Still going to find a way to make hash tomorrow! And I am so jealous your girls sleep in!!! My 7 year old is up by 6:30 every day, no matter what! It is a good thing he has learned to fend for himself until 7:30 on weekends.

    The only way I eat a fried egg is if it is over hashbrowns. Best breakfast ever!

    i love it when dishes like this just “happen” – a variety of leftovers to truly make something amazing. I love breakfast hash – I haven’t made it in SO long. Geez, I always say that – I need to stop eating the same things every darn day. This would spice things up!

    Melanie @ Just Some Salt and Pepper — January 7, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    I LOVE breakfast hash and eggs but being veggie, it’s a little different than this. I use baby bellas for the “meaty” part of the hash, sauteeing them with onion and garlic until well-sweated. Add salt, pepper and a good quarter cup of aged balsamic vinegar. Finish the pan with about a pound of baby spinach and cover to steam the greens. Uncover once the greens are wilted and let the vinegar reduce. I always pile the vegetables high on a piece of toast (sometimes smeared with a little mayonnaise!) and then top with COLD diced tomatoes (love the contrast in temperatures) and a peppered, salted fried egg. Pierce the yolk and let it run over the whole sloppy mess…. perfection.

    Love that you woke up thinking about hash. I’m sure I’ll wake up to that too now that I’ve seen this!

    I stumbled upon this post today looking for ideas for “breakfast for dinner.” I had all the ingredients so I made it in a whim and it was delicious! Thanks so much, I’ll definitely be a regular reader now!

    Breakfast hash with drippy yolk is the stuff of dreams. And then you went and added bacon fat, you evil genius.
