Brunch masquerading as dinner? Yes, please! The crispy smashed potatoes are rich and comforting, the broccoli is extra delicious thanks to charred florets from the oven, and on top goes a fried egg, tangy goat cheese, and dill. Dill isn’t your thing? Cilantro or parsley would taste great here, too.

If you don’t have a microwave, you can still make this quick dinner. You can either fill a pot with 1 inch of water and fit it with a steamer basket or parboil potatoes without a steamer basket. This method will take a bit longer to cook and roast the potatoes than the microwave method, so don’t worry if the time runs a little longer.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds baby Yukon Gold potatoes

  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 8 cups broccoli florets (1 lb.)

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • 4 large eggs

  • 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (about ½ cup)

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

Directions

  1. Preheat broiler to high with rack 8 inches from heat. Place potatoes and 2 tablespoons water in a microwavable bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high until tender, 7 to 8 minutes.

  2. Transfer potatoes to a work surface; let cool for 5 minutes. Gently flatten potatoes with a small bowl. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet; drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil, turn to coat, and arrange in an even layer. Broil until light brown, about 6 minutes.

  3. Toss broccoli with 2 tablespoons oil and add to baking sheet in an even layer alongside potatoes. Season broccoli and potatoes with pepper and ¾ teaspoon salt. Return to oven; broil, watching carefully, until broccoli is tender and potatoes are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Fry eggs until whites are set and yolks are still runny, 3 minutes.

  5. Serve broccoli and potatoes topped with cheese, eggs, dill, and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt.
