  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Toss the cut veggies with olive oil and rosemary.
  3. Rub a non-stick cookie sheet with a little oil and put in the oven for 5 minutes to heat up. When hot, spread the cut veggies in one layer and sprinkle with salt. If not using a non-stick sheet tray, line with parchment paper.
  4. Return to the oven and bake on a high shelf. Turn the veggies from time to time for even browning until they are tender and golden about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and portion four cups for the hash. Set aside remaining for another use.
  5. In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, warm 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until translucent and just starts to become golden. Add Roasted Vegetable Fries and diced tomato, a pinch of salt and pepper to taste, and cook to warm veggies through. Turn heat down to medium if pan is too hot and add a couple spoons of water to regulate pan temperature as needed.
  6. Create four wells in the vegetable mix and crack an egg into each one. Season with salt and pepper. Cover pan with a lid, and allow steam to cook eggs thorough, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Serve each portion with one egg and roughly 1 cup veggies. Garnish with parsley as desired.
