When I’m in Chicago, my boyfriend likes to cook breakfast for the two of us. The thing he always includes on the menu are his killer hash browns. I was missing him today so I decided to recreate his specialty. Of course, I totally made it my own like I did with his tomato sauce recipe . I added some roasted poblano peppers for extra kick and then topped them with one of my favorite condiments, pico de gallo .
Total time: 30 minutes
Cost per person about $4
1-2 poblano peppers, depending on your heat tolerance
2 tsp olive oil
2 medium yellow or Yukon Gold potatoes (don’t use baking potatoes because they don’t stand up well to cooking in the pan)
No-stick cooking spray
1 cup chopped fresh or frozen broccoli
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
pico de gallo
cherries or whatever fruit you like
Like I said, if you don’t feel like dealing with omelet making just scramble the eggs. I’ve done it before and it works great with the broccoli and feta. I bet next time I visit my boyfriend he will get me to make these hash browns for him. He loves him some hot peppers.
