Jersey Royal Smoked Bacon Hash

It’s that time of year for Jersey Royal’s, my favourite; this is the prime time to eat them. The season doesn’t last long so get then while you can.


  • 250g smoked streaky bacon in 1cm chunks if possible
  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
  • 500g Jersey Royals, sliced lengthways, skin on, then cooked
  • 4 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • salt and freshly milled black pepper
  • 4 poached eggs
  • chopped parsley, optional

  • Heat a large frying pan or wok.
  • Add the bacon and cook for 1 minute until the fat runs.
  • Add the onions and cook until well coloured and crispy.
  • Add the potatoes and press slightly with a potato masher or fork, but do not break up completely.
  • Cook for a further 10 minutes or so, over a high heat, then add the sauce and cook until the sauce is pretty much absorbed.
  • Spoon into large bowls and top with a poached or fried egg and little chopped parsley if you want.

Phil's Tips

  • Do not peel.
  • Cook in plenty of salted water
  • Jersey Royals I never refresh in cold water once cooked.
  • Once cooked, just strain well, then leave the potatoes in the colander and cover loosely with cling film to cool to room temperature.
