With home just barely 2 months away, I wonder how i am going to ring in the will to focus and work!
So what were we up to during the 30 day break?
With the leader of our breakfast gang i.e. the driver jetting off on holiday, we had the other alternative of cooking some. As part of my craze for corn cakes, we decided to make our own, i meant the Wife decided to make some.
You wouldn't have guessed this was home made, would you? Almost fit to be served in a restaurant i reckon.
Another day, we decided to do potato cakes and crispy bacon.
At this rate, I am finally realising why I don't have too many restaurants to write about, because we are replicating everything we see at home!
As part of a recipe post, this is a guide to a fancy looking breakfast with minimum effort.
2-3 potatoes, shredded finely, squeezed dry of the liquid you will get when you shred
1.5 tablespoon of self raising flour
Pinch of salt and pepper
1 egg to bind everything together
Half an onion, shredded (optional)
Mix everything in a bowl and pan fry till fully cooked. Serve with Crispy Bacon.
Well i don't know about you but after eating months of bacon, i find that there are usually oily, often soggy after coming out from the pan. After experimenting, i think i might have found a formula that might work.
Pan fry with no oil, on medium heat. Cook for as long as you can before it burns.
Put it on the oven at 200 degrees for 5 minutes, do keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't burn.
The result is crispy bacon, woo hoo!
Corn nibblets from 2 fresh corn cobs
Half an onion, shredded finely
One potato, shredded finely
1 tablespoon of self raising flour
Salt and pepper
Mix everything well and pan fry. A tip is to use the oil that you get from frying the bacon for extra flavour.
Just thinking about breakfast makes me want to eat breakfast for dinner!
