When I make breakfast for myself in the morning, it’s usually a bowl of cereal. If we don’t have any milk for whatever reason I usually moan and stomp my feet like a child before nuking myself some oatmeal. Or I might begrudgingly put my clothes on and go to the grocery store. This morning was different because I wanted to actually make a real breakfast.
Last night I decided that I wanted to make some hash browns for myself this morning so I bought a bag of potatoes from the grocery store with our dinner ingredients and got the food processor out to shred them. Of course I peeled them first before shredding them and they were small enough that I could just stick them in the food processor. Normally I have to cut things up but those bags of potatoes are always tiny so that was perfect.
After I shredded about 6 I put them into these containers that I also bought at the store to store them in all night. A friend told me to put water in them to remove the starch to keep them from turning brown and sure enough when I went to do that they were all brown. Before bedtime I went in there and drained them all and rinsed them all off and put them back in their containers with more water and I’m glad I did because they were still brown so changing the water was a good thing I think.
This morning I got up, grabbed my Big City Slider Station and filled each compartment with sausage so I could have some sausage patties, put 3 slices of bacon in the skillet to cook and when those were all finished I put 2 slices of bacon on the plate, 2 sausage sliders and then I put all the rest in a container for another time.
I took the hash browns out of the fridge and put them in the salad spinner to get the moisture out then put them in the bacon grease. Ok I know now that I should have used margarine or oil. Coulda shoulda woulda. When that was finished I scrambled 2 eggs and put cheese on top of the eggs.
I was going to take a picture but it was very sloppy and too embarrassing but I will tell you that it was very good. It was a very rare occasion that I would ever make that kind of breakfast and I can’t say I will ever do it again but you never know.
What am I going to do with the remainder of the hash browns though? I’m thinking that maybe I can put some butter in the big city slider station then roll up some of the hash browns and stuff them in there and see how that works out. Then I can put them in the container with the sausages and have some hash brown sliders whenever I want. I could also freeze them for later.
The reason I did all of this is because I really needed the energy for today because I have 61 posts to restore today from March 2009 and I’m getting so burnt out on the whole thing. Coffee just isn’t cutting it anymore, I figured I needed a real breakfast to get me through this day.
That kind of breakfast is good but so bad but it was so worth it.
