  1. Place diced potatoes to a bowl of cold water. Drain. Rinse again in a fresh bowl of cold water. Continue rinsing in fresh water until potato starch has been removed and water remains clear, about 3 rinsings. Drain well.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add pancetta and cook and stir until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove pancetta from skillet with a slotted spoon; drain. Reserve oil.
  3. Cook potatoes in reserved oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Brown in one even layer until pieces are browned and crusted on the bottom. Stir; spread potatoes in a single layer again and brown. Repeat until potatoes are golden brown on all sides, about 8 minutes. Add butter and chopped green onions; cook and stir until onions have sweetened and softened up a bit, 3 to 4 minutes. Add reserved pancetta. Stir in chopped kale and cook until kale wilts. Add grated cheese; cook and stir briefly.
  4. Serve topped with a poached egg. Sprinkle with a pinch of cayenne pepper and chopped parsley.

This is so unbelievably tasty, you'll never make hash any other way! I made it with and without kale, and it was a hit either way. Make sure you dice your own potato's, yes it's a hassle, but it...

Loved this ! Different twist on hash with Kale but tasted so fresh & healthy ! Hubby raved & said it was like ordering room service style :)

I made this tonight and it was a smash hit. Filling and comforting as I made this for supper. I didn't have enough pancetta so I used uncured bacon to make enough to match the recipe. I also use...

I made this with leeks instead of spring onions (as Chef John suggested) and tossed in a few sliced mushrooms as well. Fantastic! The leeks give a much better flavor than just using yellow onion...

Delicious! I used pre-boiled and chilled yukon golds, peels on. I only had a yellow onion, so I subbed that for the green onion, I doubled the quantity of kale and pre-cooked the chopped kale a ...

I made this twice! Once with white potatoes and again with sweet potatoes using bacon both times. I really liked the sweet potato version and it is healthier too! I used 4 cups of kale the secon...

used salmon in place of bacon and it was still very yummy
