Dishing Up the Dirt

Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potato Salad with Fried Eggs

We’re loving all the fresh eggs our chickens have been laying. Mealtime has never been so easy-just roast some veggies, toss in some greens and throw a fried egg on it! Simple, delicious and farm fresh to boot!

We’ve eaten a version of this salad for lunch and dinner multiple times this week. We can’t get enough and I think you all will love how flavorful yet simple this dish is.

We’re currently picking arugula from the fields that’s grown back from last fall. We just sowed our spring arugula seeds but they are a few weeks out from being ready. For now I’m just stoked to have some fresh arugula at our fingertips for quick meals. We’ve been tossing the greens on sandwiches, pasta and of course this roasted potato salad.

I hope you all enjoy the simplicity of this meal as much as we do. If you don’t eat dairy you can substitute the parmesan cheese with my almond “parmesan”  which is really darn delicious too! Crack open a few beers, play your favorite tunes and dig into spring!

Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potato Salad with Fried Eggs

Prep Time: 10 minutes    Cook Time: 35-40 minutes    Serves: 4

  • 5 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons rosemary, chopped
  • 2 pounds baby potatoes, (smallest ones left whole larger ones cut in half or quartered)
  • pinch of fine sea salt and pepper
  • big handfuls of arugula
  • freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 fried egg per person
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Olive oil for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F
  2. In a large bowl mix together the garlic, olive oil and fresh herbs. Stir in the potatoes and toss until evenly coated. Spread potatoes in a single layer on a prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast until lightly browned and tender, about 35-40 minutes. Stir halfway through cooking.
  3. While potatoes cook fry up your eggs. We like to fry ours in a little coconut oil but feel free to use butter or whatever you have on hand.
  4. Place a few handfuls of arugula on each plate. Top each plate with roasted potatoes and toss until well combined. Add fried egg and sprinkle with parmesan cheese, crushed red pepper flakes, lemon juice and a little olive oil. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper if need be.
