Since Paul has switched to working nights, I’ve been making him a lot more breakfasts. I figure since he’s making the sacrifice to work his tail off while I sleep soundly, the least I can do is welcome him home in the morning with a nice hot breakfast.
That being said, I’m not above using convenience products. One of my favorite ones to use is the “Simply Potatoes” (or Aldi equivalent) cubed potatoes with onions – they are already partially parboiled so only take 12-14 minutes to brown completely on the stovetop. What makes them truly decadent, though – is that I fry them in duck fat. The duck fat adds a boost of flavor that takes potatoes from meh to sublime. I’ve been serving this up to him with some center cut bacon (baked in the oven, natch – on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees until crispy) and cheesy scrambled eggs and he’s been in hog heaven.
What’s your favorite breakfast to start (or end) the day?
