“In this series I present the Sustainable recipes from the chefs of the Fairmont Hotels in Canada and Internationally”
Fairmont Royal York Poached Farm Egg Hash
1 Pre-heat a medium heavy bottom pot over med-high heat, add diced leftover turkey leg, cover with turkey bone stock. Bring to a slow simmer and cook until turkey is warmed through and is tender. Remove turkey with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl, keep warm, turn heat up to a soft boil – reduce turkey stock until it coats the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat and keep warm.
2 In a large pre-heated fry pan over medium heat, drizzle olive oil. Add the onion and sauté until onions start to lightly brown. Reduce heat and add garlic and chilies. Cook for another 4 minutes.
3 Add diced squash and sweet potato, slightly increase heat. Brown the tomatoes and squash.
4 Reduce heat, add reduced stock, season with salt, pepper, sage and parsley – place aside and keep warm.
5 Take the trimmed and washed leaves, place in a medium bowl, add lemon zest and a small amount of lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper (adjust sharpness with more lemon juice)
6 Bring a medium size pot with 1 litre of water to a soft boil, add white vinegar. Crack eggs gently into a bowl, take a spoon and swirl through the water in a clockwise motion. Slowly add the eggs and stop stirring. Move water around them so they don’t stick to the bottom of the pot. With a slotted spoon remove when egg whites are lightly firm. Remove from water and place on a towel to drain water.
7 Place hash in the centre of a warm plate, top with two poached eggs, add brussels sprouts salad. Drizzle with olive oil and sea salt.
