From the Kitchen - Outside The Nest

Breakfast On The Go

Today I'm sharing a quick, easy, make-ahead recipe for a hearty, satisfying grab-and-heat breakfast.

I start with these little gems, aka: fingerling potatoes. I make a handful, enough to make about a cup of shredded potatoes after they're cooked.
I just poke a few holes in them with a fork and nuke for one minute. Done.

Then I get out this gadget and shred them into a nice fluffy pile. So easy.

As usual, I'm using my favorite liquid egg product as a base.

Add some reduced-fat shredded cheddar and milk.

Throw in the bacon, seasonings and potatoes, and give it a quick stir.

Aren't they pretty? They puff up so big and tall, all full of tasty goodness.

After they cool down a bit, they also deflate a bit.

I like to pair one with a nice warm muffin.
What a great, satisfying breakfast. I keep the leftovers in the frig. Wrap one in a paper towel and nuke for 30 seconds. Hot all the way through.
Hey, go wild. Try ham. Try Swiss. Try whatever seasonings catch your fancy. Try other vegies instead of potatoes.
One thing for sure. Are they ever good.
Happy Saturday
