Dill Breakfast PotatoesMacki West
By now you all must know how much time my family spent in the kitchen growing up. If not, I’ve got another story for you. Every Saturday morning my parents, with our assistance, would make dill breakfast potatoes with eggs and cheese. There were 7 of us so we would slice up a ton of potatoes and onion and cook them in a huge pot on the stove, since a sauté pan was too small for our gang. We still do this on visits home. My daughter has grown to LOVE these potatoes so we make them at our house on the weekends now too, but I cheat (shhh don’t tell mom). Get my version of our family classic after the jump…
Dill Breakfast Potatoes Recipe
1 package of plain Simply Potatoes (found near the eggs at your grocery store)
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons dried dill or 1 heaping teaspoon fresh
3 egg whites
½ cup grated cheddar cheese
Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until beginning to soften (about 3 minutes), then add the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper and dill (don’t overdo it on the salt b/c we will be adding cheese). Cook for 6 minutes, then using a spatula flip the potatoes over, the can be done in parts too. Cook for an additional 4 minutes, then break apart the potatoes and stir together. Continue to cook until potatoes are soft, another 5 minutes. Whisk the eggs and pour over the potatoes and stir while they cook making sure the egg is evenly spread throughout. Top with shredded cheese and serve with fresh fruit. Makes 4 servings.
