With bacon, potatoes and eggs, this salmon dish is easy to make and mouthwateringly delicious. Serve with toast and a big glass of orange juice to start your Saturday morning right.



  1. Place potatoes in a pot of cool water and bring to a boil. Cook the potatoes for 20 minutes or until they’re tender. Drain, peel, and cut into 1-inch chunks.
  2. Heat up a large, nonstick skillet and then cook the bacon until browned and crisp. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel to drain, then crumble.
  3. Leave the bacon fat in the skillet and then melt the butter. Once butter is melted, add in the onion and potatoes, cooking over moderate heat and stirring occasionally while gently mashing the potatoes. Potatoes should be browned in spots. Then, add in the bacon, salmon, and chives. Season the whole thing with salt and paper, letting it cook until the salmon is heated through.
  4. As these ingredients are cooking, poach your eggs in a separate saucepan over moderate heat, about 5 minutes.
  5. Spoon the hash onto a plate and then place the poached eggs on top.

Crab Cake Egg Stacks
