potato hash

yesterday was the first day of spring quarter for all the uw students out there and it was my first day of not doing anything.  i've never really ever had this much time to do things ever.  i mean it's always been school and then work in the summers, but this is new to me.  now that i'm graduated i don't know what to do.  i mean i have a job that i love, working at the homework center at a local elementary school, but that gives me barely 8 hours a week, so i'm trying to think of things to fill the rest of my time.  it's weird, everything has always been planned out for me, or at least i always knew what i was going to do - after high school, go to college, but now after college....what's next?  anyways this is one of the things i've started to work on - a flog!!!  bahahaha and i also tried running for the first time in like 3 years....sore today bahaha!  and my number one goal is deff to try and get a job!  so between all those things, i'm hoping maybe i can pick up anther hobby like arts and crafts or reading - for fun now, not just for school!  we'll just have to wait and see how this spring turns out! 

anyways, so yesterday i decided to make a potato hash for breakfast!!!  it is literally one of my favorite things to make and super delicious!

hearty potato hash
  • one potato
  • half an onion
  • 3 strips of bacon - i LOVE turkey bacon so that's what i used but you could use whatever
  •  1 tbs of butter
  • salt and pepper for seasoning 
  • garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
1. cut potato into 1 inch chunks and place into pot of water.  place pot on stove and let boil for about 10 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender

2. cut bacon into 1/4 inch chunks and fry in separate pan.  after getting to desired crispiness remove from pan and place to the side

3. mince onion and start sauteing in the pan you cooked the bacon in (add butter if needed)

4. once potatoes are fork tender, drain water, and add to pan with onions.  add a tablespoon of butter and the bacon.  add a little bit of garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste

5. sprinkle cheddar cheese on top once plated

i like an easy over egg with mine!  it's a great hearty breakfast!!  i hope you love it as much as i do!  :]
