Breakfast Hash

Tuesday, March 22, 2016

I love making breakfast. It is definitely my favorite meal of the day. Since becoming more of a morning person over the years I feel like I have the most energy and motivation to make a great meal during this time of the day. Come dinner time it's a different story.

Morning times can be pretty crazy around here. There are a million little people running around; asking me questions, demanding my attention and actually requiring me to feed them. The nerve! On top of the normal chaos I have to make sure the kids do their chores and get everything ready for school.

As you can imagine I need a little time to myself in the morning to prepare for the day. Along with my devotional time,working out/ running; breakfast is my time to get energized to keep me going throughout the day. It's not always peaceful but I try to sit and enjoy my breakfast with the kids and savor my coffee, even if it's while they are reading to me or doing their chores. Most days I get to my coffee and it's cold but I rarely miss eating my breakfast.
A couple weeks ago I went out with my sister to First Watch; a breakfast chain in this area. It was great. I got their mexican breakfast hash. It was so good. I thought to myself, "I could make this at home!"

Sometimes it's hard for me to pay money to go out to eat for breakfast when I feel I could make it just as good at home. Granted there are many things I can't make and I will gladly pay someone to cook and clean up for me but when it comes to breakfast food I can be a bit of a snob. You see I use mostly freshly milled flour to make our pancakes and fresh eggs right from our backyard chickens. So I guess I have some grounds for feeling this way.

Back to the hash. I made my own variation at home and now it is one of my favorite meals to make. You can make your own version as well. The possibilities are endless!

Breakfast Hash

Ingredients
2Tbs. Butter- for cooking
Potatoes/diced -I would say use 1 potato each person
Onions- 1/4 per person
Bacon- 1-2 strips per person
Eggs- 1-2 per person
Arugula- a few leaves per person
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions
Bake bacon in 350 oven on pan covered in aluminum foil. Cook till crispy. Throw diced potatoes and onions in pan with butter. Cook till potatoes are crispy and soft and onions are translucent. Season with salt and pepper. Once potatoes are cooked you can use the same pan to cook eggs. I like them soft with the white covering the yokes. To do this put some butter in pan and crack your eggs in. After a minute pour in a little bit of water and cover with a pan top. Let cook for another minute or so till whites cover the top but the yoke is still soft inside.

Place Arugula in bowl or plate cover with potatoes and onions and bacon and top with eggs. Enjoy!

Are you a breakfast snob?

  1. Yum! Sounds like my kind of breakfast. We have First Watch around us too, but I've never been. I completely understand about not wanting to pay someone else to make food I could easily make myself . . . but sometimes it truly is a joy to enjoy those things without my effort invested in it!
