Mom and dad came to visit last weekend. I love when they come to visit, not only because I know we’ll have a good time, but also, because I know we’ll eat well.
Well, I had this breakfast recipe out on the counter that I had been wanting to make for a while and figured why not try her out when mom was there to help. So we gathered up the ingredients and got to work.
This dish was tasty. We switched the recipe around a little bit, which I think made it even better.
Anyway, here’s the recipe:
3 c. shredded potatoes
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 red bell pepper; diced (we didn’t have one, so we used hot pork sausage instead…)
1 medium onion; diced
1 clove garlic; pressed
3/4 tsp salt; divided
6 large eggs
1/4 tsp. pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350. Heat skillet on stovetop to medium-high. Add butter and oil. When butter is melted, add pepper and onion (or forget the pepper and add the sausage in bite sized pieces) – saute 5 minutes. Add potatoes, 1/2 tsp salt, and garlic. Cook, stirring often, 10 minutes or until potatoes are golden.
2. Remove from heat, make 6 indentations in the potato mixture. Break 1 egg into each indentation. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
3. Add to oven and bake for 12-14 minutes, or until eggs are set.
A word of advice to anyone making this: Moms make the best potato stirrers. If I had made it, the potatoes would have burnt and stuck to the bottom of the skillet. These came out smoothly and I barely needed to wipe the skillet down.
Another word of advice to anyone making this: your fiancee will ask you to make this again the following day.
