I love breakfast ~ early morning ~ the aroma of that first cup of coffee... It’s my favorite meal of the day, that I would gladly eat, any meal of the day!
It’s about crispy bacon, fried eggs over-easy, home fries, whole-wheat toast with cherry preserves, and a cup of strong steaming black coffee. But then, I’ve been known to eat a slice of apple pie for breakfast also…
This morning, I had fresh mushrooms and leftover baked potatoes on hand --- diced the potatoes with the skin on, tossed them into the skillet, added a chopped onion, and fried it all to a crispy-deep-golden-brown. I used to fry them in bacon grease, but those days are gone, using as little oil as possible now.
It’s a delicious savory side dish for breakfast ~ it’s heaven to me!
I always have to have breakfast before I can leave the house…
How about you, are you a breakfast lover?
