4. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the leeks and cook, stirring often, for 8 minutes or until softened. Use a slotted spoon to remove from the pan.

6. Add the sausages and leeks and cook, turning the hash over occasionally, for 5 minutes or until the potatoes are nicely browned.

7. Spread the potato mixture evenly in the pan. With the back of a large kitchen spoon, make 4 indentations in the mixture. Carefully drop an egg into each one. Reduce the heat to medium and cover the pan. Cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until the whites are set and the yolks are runny.

8. Using a large spoon, carefully transfer the eggs and hash to plates. Sprinkle with thyme.
