Kids, I ate this for breakfast this weekend, and after I finished going on and on to the hubby about what a wonderful cook I am, I knew I had to share it with you! I ate it before I could think to photograph it the first time, but I had it for dinner tonight, so voila! Pics!
Also, have I mentioned my favorite menu planning site? It's where I post all of my recipes! If you're on the site, add me as a friend so we can share!
|Gather your ingredients: leftover spring onions, butter, spinach, eggs, fresh corn, goat cheese, and black bean & corn salsa. It was a corn festival, what can I say? And the olive oil and garlic were forgotten... oh well!|
|Then, pet your kitty that is begging for attention, even though she won't hold still and pose for the camera.|
|Hash browns are just about done! At this point I fried the hubster's 3 eggs and then began my own.|
|Blurry action shot!|
|Before the eggs hit the plate, just so you can see the goat cheese babies|
|The final beautiful creation. Can you smell it?|
From my Plan to Eat post:
Best Eggs Ever:
I've determined this is the best breakfast I've ever made. And it was so easy: my husband just wanted eggs and hash browns, so it was a cinch for me to just modify those two ingredients into this recipe for me. Would also be good on crusty toast or with a higher ratio of salsa/ tomato to spinach.
Note about the hash browns: I list them as already cooked here because I don't claim to be a hash brown pro. I simply use the frozen, pre-shredded hash brown potatoes, and fry them up in shortening, oil, or butter. They take a long time to brown up, and they brown best when left undisturbed in the pan for several minutes at a time.
Note about goat cheese: many recipes consider goat cheese and feta interchangeable. I don't. Goat cheese is divine and makes my world go 'round.
Note about the fixins' (last note!): Regarding the onions, garlic, spinach, etc., get creative! Today I forgot the garlic and added fresh corn, and it was an all new level of divine! Just use what you have on hand that gets your mojo going!
1/2 cup Hashbrowns, cooked
1 tbsp butter
1 drizzle olive oil
2 tbsp onions chopped, I used spring onions
1/4 tsp garlic roasted, minced
3 tbsp salsa or tomatoes, I used black bean & corn salsa
2 handfuls baby spinach
2 tbsp goat cheese or feta
- While the hash browns are finishing up, heat the butter and olive oil.
- Sautee the onions and garlic for 1 min
- Add the salsa and spinach and sautee until almost totally wilted
- At the other end of the pan, fry the egg with salt & pepper
- Once the egg is cooked to your liking, plate the hashbrowns
- Add the spinach mixture and goat cheese
- Put the egg on top of the goat cheese so that the cheese will heat through and semi-melt
- Die from happiness!
