Full of all the flavours you love in a traditional breakfast, this version of eggs and hash swaps shredded jicama in beautifully for shredded potato in this savory favorite. Even when cooked, jicama retains its white flesh and crunchy texture, so it works well in this application along with classic hash brown ingredients, such as onion, garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper. The pan-crisped Canadian bacon adds a salty punch. Fry the eggs however you like—sunny side up (fried on one side, never flipped) or over easy (fried on both sides). Both have runny yolks that mingle nicely with the jicama-ham hash.
