- Parboil the potato in lightly salted boiling water for 6 minutes and drain thoroughly.
- Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the bacon and onion for 5-6 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Add the potato and cook over a medium heat for 10-15 minutes, only stirring every 3-4 minutes to allow the underside to brown and crisp a little each time. Continue to cook until the hash is evenly browned.
- Meanwhile, for the poached eggs, bring a deep pan of water to the boil. Add the vinegar and gently swirl the water around the pan to make a whirlpool. Crack the eggs into the middle of the whirlpool and simmer for 4 minutes. Carefully remove with a slotted spoon.
- To serve, season the hash to taste with salt and pepper, divide between plates and top each portion with a poached egg and a pinch of black pepper.
