Okay I have to make a confession. I really don't like homefries in a skillet for breakfast. I know, I know.. How can you not like them? Well- I don't. I think they are a PIA to prepare and make, they get soaked with grease, and they usually don't turn out that great (for me). And I don't really care for them.

But I love potatoes. And I love mashed potatoes. And some of the instant varieties out on the market are fantastic- like Idaho brand 4 cheese or garlic and butter.. WOW!! Those are fantastic.

So yesterday my son had an idea- Why not have mashed potatoes for breakfast? Why not take mashed potatoes mixed with cooked bacon, put that mix in some oven safe serving bowls, make a divot in the top, add an egg, some shredded cheddar and bake it?

Oh.. my...

It's a twice baked, bacon and cheddar masher breakfast bowl.

And it is good.


Have a great day, Montana.

I eat either green leafy salad or a home made vegetable/bean soup for every meal, including breakfast. I changed to this habit a couple of months ago.

This morning was typical - baby spinach topped with chopped carrot, sunflower seeds, and sauteed chopped onions and mushrooms.

I am much healthier since I started eating spinach salads for breakfast. May sound crazy, but I can tell how much better I feel getting the boost of concentrated nutrients.

All washed down with several cups of coffee, of course.

That potato with egg sounds good, I'll have to try it.

I always take left over mashed tators and add one raw egg, chopped onion and jalapena, chop up some soft cooked bacon and mix it all up. Then pat it into patties like a burger. Throw that in a hot skillet and brown it on both sides. We call them potato cakes.

Exhibit 'A'-


I'll add chives on top next time. Is that enough green to call it healthy?

Technical details-
Oven at 350, bake for 45 minutes

Second photo.

Bowl on the left has cheese pulled off the top to reveal the fluffy egg underneath. I just cracked and plopped an egg in there, then layered with cheese.



So this is an official keeper for the occasional Sunday brunch. It's officially called 'Zach's egg, bacon n' cheddah twice baked masher monster meal'.
