Hash browns are delicious, but they're too much work to make at home. Here's an easier method using fingerling potatoes that's equally as good and makes the perfect accompaniment to fried eggs. Your kids might even think the potatoes are better than French fries.

  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices (3 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup (1/4-inch) vertically sliced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 large eggs
