You're probably thinking I'm going to break out into song, but actually this is a food mash-up! And eggscellent mash-up! ;)
One of our favorite meals is an egg mash-up of potatoes, eggs, bacon, sausage and cheese. This is a recipe though that you can add whatever you like. That's the best part about it being a mash-up. It is about adding what you like and not following a recipe.
We use this mostly for dinner, but on occasion we'll do this for a breakfast meal. I don't know why, but it makes a yummy dinner.
You'll need to adjust the amount of each ingredient depending on how many people you are trying to feed. We currently are feeding a four (2 of which are male teens!). Here's what we use:
Potatoes (can be frozen or fresh) - 1 bag frozen or a bunch of potatoes cut up into little cubes until you feel you have enough. I think I used 8-10 small potatoes last night.
Eggs - we use 12-16 depending on the night.
Sausage - I used 1/2 pound of links.
Bacon - I used about half a package.
Shredded Cheese - however much you like.
Serve with toast and your favorite condiments. Our family uses ketchup, soy sauce and hot sauce! Yes, I typed that right....soy sauce. LOL
Needless to say this makes a huge batch and we barely have any leftovers for Travis' lunch!
Tips: If using fresh potatoes be sure to cut them into small cubes like that frozen hash browns you buy at the store. They cook faster that way. Also be sure to cook at a higher temperature to get them to brown. You want to make sure you have enough vegetable oil to keep the potatoes from sticking to the bottom.
Using fresh potatoes tastes better than with the frozen kind, but it tastes just fine and is quicker to just toss a bag of frozen ones in a pan!
