I love weekends because that means I get to make breakfast! Usually during the week, we’re pretty routine with cereal, oatmeal and protein shakes. On the weekends it’s when we get a little more wild and crazy with breakfast and one of the things I love to make is skillet potato hash. I take all my leftover veggies from the week and pair them with Simply Potatoes® and a few eggs and we’ve filled our tummies and cleaned out the refrigerator. My kind of double duty. Now the thing about weekends is that Hattie gets up earlier on Saturday than any other day of the week. For the love of all things child, SLEEP! We usually get up and make breakfast together while Daddy sleeps in and I relax with a cup of coffee and catch up on the Food Network for the week. I love spending my Saturdays like that.
Lately my littlest helper is really into helping in the kitchen. We just got her a kid safe knife and her own purple cutting board and she thinks she’s a professional chef. Today I had her help our with chopping peppers and onions. I usually anticipate that not all of it will make it into the dish, but it gives her good skills and confidence.
This particular skillet hash, I had red peppers (because Hattie always insists on getting one at the store), green onions, diced ham, eggs and my easy go to Simply Potatoes. These guys are so easy to whip up a quick and easy breakfast. Just chop up the extra veggies and toss in a skillet. We’re talking maybe 15-20 minutes tops for breakfast. This would be an easy dinner too! I used a separate pan to cook the eggs, and they come out beautiful added to the top.
I love the Simply Potatoes with Onions because my husband strongly dislikes onions. But, if I can sneak them in where I can and saute them up, he rarely notices. The great thing about this dish is once you have the framework, you can substitute so much. You could do Simply Potatoes Sweet Potatoes and turkey sausage or even Brussel Sprouts. Boy that would be good. I find my Simply Potatoes at all of my local grocery stores, so they are easily accessible. The possibilities are endless!
