Feast 32 – Self Indulgence/Hash Browns

There is no doubt, this meal is all about me… Eddie is gone on vacation, i am 7 days away from mine and i wanted to make something that i enjoy simply for me. this is a meal that i had been intending on documenting for quite some time as i have been making it on a fairly recurring basis. its my favorite weekend late morning breakfast and i hope you enjoy it as well. it is deceptively simple for just how damned good it is, please don’t stray from trying it out because of its simplicity.

Greg’s Hash Browns with Over Easy Eggs:

all you need for this one as far as cooking implements is a large mixing bowl, a box grater, a spatula and a frying pan. it makes for easy clean up and a relatively quick one plate breakfast that is satisfying at a real base level.

Start with a medium red potato and a yellow onion. Grate the potato, peels and all and drain of liquid. Peel the onion and grate it as well.

Potato and Onion Grated

Next, roughly chop three slices of bacon into lardons. Also chop 1/2 of a jalapeno and 1/2 of a habanero.

Chopped Bacon and Peppers

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the potato, onion, bacon, peppers, 1/4 cup of olive oil, a sprinkling of sage and a few generous twists of salt and pepper.

Ingredients mixed for hash browns

Transfer to a frying pan that is heated well over a medium high heat, around 5 1/2 on my crappy electric stove. fry for about five minutes or until the edges of the hash browns start to brown and curl up a bit. divide into two even portions and scoot to the back half of the frying pan.

Hash Browns spread evenly over the frying pan

Flip the two hash browns and fry two eggs over easy on the front portion of the frying pan, sprinkling with a twist of salt and pepper. about the time that you flip the eggs to cook the second side, top the hash browns with half a chopped tomato, a healthy dose of Tabasco sauce and grated mixed mexican style cheese.

Hash Browns and eggs cooking

when the eggs are done, transfer them on top of the hash browns and let cook for a few more minutes. carefully lift onto a plate and enjoy the decadent goodness. it could serve two people or one healthy appetite for a sunday morning.

Hash Browns with Eggs, Ready to eat

This meal is best served with a fresh cup of french press coffee while sitting on your ass on the couch watching whatever happens to be on. there is a certain pleasure to decadent indulgence served up with a side of sloth.

Did i mention i have seven days until my vacation?
