PyttiPanna, which translates to ‘little pieces in a pan’, is Swedish comfort food. A simple combination of potatoes, onions, bacon and sausage never tasted so good. The egg topper seals the flavor deal.
Swedish-Style Hash (Pytt Panna)
600 g (1 lb 5 oz) potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
1 oz butter
1 Tbs oil, plus extra to fry the eggs
2 onions, finely chopped
2 Tbs parsley, chopped
250g unsmoked back bacon, roughly chopped
3 cooked sausages, sliced
Pickled beetroot, to serve (optional)
1. Heat a large non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Add the oil and butter and when foaming add the potatoes and onions. Cook until golden brown and potatoes are soft, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Stir in parsley and set aside.
2. Meanwhile, heat a separate pan and when hot add the bacon. When the bacon is crisp add the sausage and cook until warmed through. Season to taste with salt and pepper, stir into the potato mixture and keep warm.
3. Fry the eggs in a little oil.
6. Serve hash topped with the eggs and a side serving of pickled beetroot, if you like.
