With grocery stores being cleaned out due to coronavirus, it can be tough to come up with meals for the family. Here is a great breakfast/brunch recipe that uses whatever you have in the fridge.
We call it breakfast hash. The only ingredient you absolutely have to have is potatoes. Use one potato per person you are cooking for, plus a couple extras, in case someone whats seconds. Start by dicing the potatoes into ¼-inch cubes.
You can use any type of pan, but I would highly recommend a good ole’ cast iron skillet. Heat the skillet for a minute or two over medium heat with just a little oil (I use olive oil). Then add the potato cubes, and make sure they are spread out evenly over the bottom of the pan. Cover, and stir the potatoes around every few couple so they cook evenly. Cook them until they are golden brown.
It’s up to the genius chef within you to decide what else to add. If you are low on food due to coronavirus, just mix in whatever you can find in the fridge. Mr. Handsome likes to add bacon, eggs, and cheese. I like mine with just a little salt and pepper. The sky is the limit. If you are adding meat, eggs, or veggies, cook them ahead of time or in another pan before you add them to the hash. Here are a few options:
Herbs (garlic, oregano, etc)
Spices (pepper, salt, cayenne, paprika)
Chicken (cubed pieces)
Hot dogs (if you are desperate)
Give it a try and let me know what ingredients you add!
