Gnocchi Hash


I got very high and made a breakfast hash that uses gnocchi instead of potatoes. Seemed to make sense and this was really good. You'll see a lot of pasta recipes here that include egg. That's because I eat pasta for breakfast almost every Sunday. Normally it works out just fine and I go about my day. Today ,however, I have taken 2 naps watched 3 episodes of the new Chef's Table. I also fried an entire eggplant and ate the whole thing Milanese style before 10AM. Haha.

Hash is, well, really whatever you want it to be. I'll include what I did below with some tips, but don't expect an exact recipe. I really think the flavors work well together and I've never tried eggplant and serrano peppers in the same dish but it's pretty fire. Oh, and you can find the recipe for homemade gnocchi right here.

Some Tips
I uniformly diced the eggplant, onion, garlic, and serrano pepper. First, I sautéed the eggplant with a little olive oil, then added the onion, serrano, and garlic. Get everything soft and a little golden. Leave in the pan and set aside off the heat. I also chose to roast some thinly sliced tomatoes in the oven which I recommend. Separately, cook your gnocchi in some heavily salted boiling water until it floats. When it does, strain it and get another pan rip roaring hot. Add a little olive oil then add your gnocchi to the pan. You want to get a nice golden color on your gnocchi. When you do, toss in the eggplant mixture. Crack a few eggs on top and throw it in the oven on 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your desire. Top with Romano and parsley.
