This dish, sent in by reader Robert MacNeill of Cincinnati, Ohio, is a popular item on diner menus and is easy to make at home. Serve it as a side or, for a complete meal, top it with eggs for a protein-packed breakfast.
After stirring in the cream in step 3, reduce heat to low. Break 4 eggs, one at a time, on top of hash in skillet; cover, and cook just until whites are set, about 10 minutes. Use a spatula to divide among 4 plates.
