My hubby and I have eaten breakfast in bed for years now. However, since he retired, he has been sleeping in much later!! I actually have to eat out in the kozy kitchen sometimes and bring his breakfast in later.
How's this for rise 'n shine? I used a napkin as a placemat for color. The clear handled flatware is from Ross, along with the plate and mug. I think he'll love it, don't you??
The knock-out roses are from our garden along with a couple of sprigs of rosemary. Candles are always a nice addition, as long as they're not overpowering.
I nice sized mug holds our morning tea.
While shopping at Costco, I came across these new hashbrowns that can be stored in the pantry. You rehydrate them with hot water and then fry them in a skillet. I'm a sucker for new foodie products. The Emile Henry pie plate was from a gift card from one of my sons. I love the fluted edge. Here's the recipe that was included with the hashbrowns:
This small carton reconstitutes into 6 servings.
1- 4.2 oz. carton of hashbrowns
2 T. Oil
3 T. cooked chopped bacon
1/4 cup caramelized onion (I just used a little chopped chives)
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
3 eggs, beaten
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Refresh potatoes by adding hot water. Let stand 10 minutes.
Butter a 9" pie pan.
Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat, drain potatoes and cook on one side until brown at the edges, about 5 minutes. Press the potatoes into the pie pan to make a crust. Arrange the bacon, onions, and cheeses over the crust.
Beat the eggs, milk, cream and salt and pepper and pour over all. Bake for 25 minutes or until set.
NOTE: I made this the night before and then cut up slices, reheated slightly in the microwave and served. I lightly sprinkled mine with bloggy buddy Lynn's, at happierthanapiginmud.blogspot.com/, new favorite Lawry's Chile and Garlic Coarse Ground Blend. Wow, did that ever wake up the flavor! Lynn has me hooked on that stuff!! Next time, I'll use that in place of the s & p.
