Potatoes with Dandelion Greens and Fried Eggs


  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 8 flat anchovy fillets

  • 4 baby Yukon Gold potatoes, very thinly sliced (like potato chips)

  • 1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped

  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • Black pepper

  • 1 bunch dandelion greens, stems discarded and leaves chopped

  • Freshly grated nutmeg

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 8 large eggs


In a medium skillet, heat the EVOO, three turns of the pan, over medium-low heat until hot. Add the anchovies and cook until melted, 2 minutes. Add the potatoes, parsley, garlic and crushed red pepper; spread evenly in the pan and season with black pepper. Cook, turning, until the potatoes are golden, about 10 minutes. Fold in the dandelion greens, season with nutmeg and cook over low heat, turning a few times, until softened, 7-8 minutes. In a large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium-low heat. Crack in four of the eggs, season with black pepper, flip and cook to desired doneness, 3-7 minutes. Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and four eggs. Serve with the potatoes and greens.
