Ok. So from that title you may be a little like, “Whaaaa?!?!” And I have to kind of agree with you. This recipe was the mastermind of my younger brother Nick. This was created one morning circa the year I learned to cook grilled cheese on my own. Most of the foods us kids thought were amazing (like liver sausage and mayo sandwiches or pickles and sour cream sandwiches) are definitely an acquired taste.
But, potatoes and eggs seem a little bit more logical. I mean, you do eat hash browns with breakfast, right?
My brother is probably a little miffed that I am sharing his trademark specialty with you all. Seriously. When I shared a picture of this standard breakfast on Instagram a while ago, I got a call from my youngest brother saying, “Why are you sharing that on social media? Nick is going to be mad.” I am 100% serious. That was an actual phone conversation. My little brother doesn’t call me very often. He is more of a texter, so a phone call means it is serious.
My brothers and I always talk about restaurant ideas. One drunken evening we thought chips on sandwiches was a great idea for a restaurant. We should have trademarked that crap, because Subway is aaaaallll about Fritos on subs. One night we talk about opening a food truck and then the next day it is a catering company. The only restaurant venture that has always stuck around through the years is Nick’s idea for a French fries and eggs breakfast all day kinda joint.
We randomly text each other pictures of our new takes on this classic; chorizo FF & E, hot dogs FF & E, Mexican FF & E, Greek FF &E….. The list goes on. But seriously, this is our million dollar take it to shark tank idea. DON’T STEAL IT. Please?
My brothers will be sooooo pissed.
Hmm… Maybe we should trademark this, I would hate to have what happened with Subway happen with this idea.
