I’m pretty sure that I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t have breakfast for dinner at least every once in a while. It’s so comforting and familiar. For me and especially for the girls that I hang with, pancakes for dinner is not such an unusual meal choice. When kids are hungry and husbands are gone for at least 4-6 months out of every year, any hot meal is considered a win!
Many moons ago, I started making potato hash with sweet potatoes alongside my favorite white potato. I love adding different seasoning combinations with it. The type in the recipe below is made with onions and green peppers. You could make it more harvest-y with apples instead of green peppers and substitute the spicy seasonings for cinnamon and nutmeg. Yum, I feel another creation coming on.
We add eggs on the top for an excellent source of protein and vitamins! I love a good runny egg, but it doesn’t matter how you make the eggs. For the kids, we give one egg and two for the adults. Don’t skip the cilantro on this, it adds so much flavor and you will love it. Salsa is also a great addition!
