recipe of the day: Pyttipannu

It's been such a long time since I've posted here! Really, it's quite hard to get back on track after a prolonged pause! Though... no complains about how busy I've been, and how much I wish I were a diligent blogger (though both are true;) The good thing is that the first step is already done!😎

And now, it's time for a filling & comforting... Pyttipannu! Each time we are in Finland, we never forget to indulge in this simple yet tasty, actually made of left-overs dish, - fried cubes of potato, sausages cut by circles (the way we always have it served in front of us when in Finland) and omelette!
What you see in the photographs is my basic pyttipannu version made by memory and inspired by a cheff Marcus Samuelsson's presentation, as from here.

3 Tbsp. olive oil
1½ cups diced (Yukon Gold) potatoes (skin on)
1 large yellow onion, diced
1 cup diced leftover brisket
1 cup diced leftover cooked ham
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
4 large eggs

1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and cook the potatoes, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 8 minutes.
2. Add the onion and continue to cook, stirring often, until it is golden and the potatoes have crispy edges, about 6 more minutes.
3. Add the brisket and ham and cook, stirring often, until they're heated through. If things begin to stick to the pan along the way, add a little water to release them. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
4. Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and fry the eggs sunny-side up.


  1. Pyttipannu recipe! Wow! We use sausages but ham sounds good too. Looks great!

  2. Thank you Teresa! Yes, to me the version with sausages seems to be the best one, too!;)
