Easy Breakfast Recipes: Scrambled Eggs and Homemade Hashbrowns

Tomorrow is Sunday-- a good day for scrambled eggs and hashbrowns.
  Want to impress the kids or your significant other?  Make a nice Sunday brunch.

Here's what you need:

  • 6-8 potatoes
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cheyenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of parsley
  • Assorted items to put in the eggs (see below)

Here's what to do for the homemade hashbrowns:

  • Scrub the potatoes then dice into cubes
  • Coat a Teflon fry pan with olive oil and put on medium heat
  • Dice up a small onion and put in pan (you may also want to chop up a garlic clove)
  • Drop in the potatoes, shake in some salt and pepper
  • If you like add a dash of cheyenne pepper and parsley
  • Add a few dashes of paprika

Keep stirring the mix until browned to taste (add a little olive oil to avoid burning).  Takes about 20-30 minutes-- this can be done in advance.  While the hashbrowns are browning start the eggs

Here's what to do for the eggs:

Assume two eggs per person (one for small kids)

  • Put in a bowl and whisk (beat)
  • Add a dash of salt and pepper
  • Add a dash of milk

You now have the base-- time to get fancy (use ingredients individually or mix and match if you choose):

  • Diced tomatoes and finely chopped onions (if the onions are small enough the kids won't notice them, but they will love the taste)
  • Fresh chopped chives
  • A teaspoon or two of sour cream
  • Chopped mushrooms
  • Chopped peppers
  • Diced sliced ham
  • Salsa
  • Cheese-American, Cheddar, Swiss, Munster, Jarlsberg, etc. (Any one or mix)

In a Teflon fry pan coated with Pam or butter on medium heat-- mix in ingredients and stir for several minutes until done.

You can also add toast, bacon, and/or sausages.

For $3-5 ingredients and some time, you just saved $15-25.  Furthermore, you are guaranteed to impress and be a hero to your family. 

Bon Appetite!
