The tender stems from Swiss chard add both flavor and texture to this skillet hash. Available with white, rainbow or red stems, any variety will work, but red chard will enhance the scary vibes, if you're making it for Halloween. You can also leave off the eyeball decorations for a tasty brunch item any time of the year.



  1. Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water by about 1 inch. Season with salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are barely tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain well and let cool at least 5 minutes.
  2. Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are browned and crisp, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove to a large plate, leaving the excess oil behind.
  3. Add the chard stems, scallions and thyme to the skillet and cook, stirring, until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Stir in the beets and garlic until combined, then gradually add the chard leaves, stirring to wilt before adding more. Add 2 tablespoons water and continue to cook until the greens are wilted and tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Return the potatoes to the skillet. Cook, stirring, until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a second large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, crack the eggs into the hot skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook until the whites are almost set, 3 to 5 minutes. Top each yolk with a slice of pimiento-stuffed olive, then cover the pan to finish fully cooking the white around the yolk, about 2 minutes. 
  6. Top the hash with the eggs. Drizzle with hot sauce.
