One of Rose and Mr. Manly Man’s favorite breakfast meals is one that is loosely based on a Ranchers Breakfast recipe I found years ago. Rose calls it “That Egg Thing” and Mr. Manly Man calls it that “That Egg Thing That Rose Likes”. Good thing I know what they are talking about!
Here are the main players of “That Egg Thing”
Eggs, Bacon, Hash Browns and Cheese
I start by cutting the bacon into bite sized pieces and cooking it up nice and crisp. When cooked, drain on a paper towel. This is where I always run into trouble, that bacon just sitting there, begging to be eaten.
Next I cook the hash browns to a nice golden brown. You can use shredded hash browns or even O’Brien hash browns if you so desire. I prefer to use hash brown patties.
When the hash browns are done, I fry up the eggs, over easy. With a little salt for Rose, salt and pepper for Mr. Manly Man.
To assemble, layer from bottom to top: hash browns, eggs, bacon and then top with shredded cheese.
30 seconds in the microwave to melt the cheese and here is what they get:
I don’t have the actual recipe but here is what I use per person, you can easily double or triple depending on how many you are cooking for:
2 hash brown patties
2 slices of bacon
1/2 cup cheddar cheese – shredded
salt & pepper to taste.
You can add onions, green pepper, mushrooms, pretty much whatever you want. I cook them up in a little bit of the bacon grease and put on top of the hash browns for Mr. Manly Man on occasion.
