There’s something I like to make for breakfast that I refer to as The Stack.
It’s a combination of toast, hash browns, onions, spinach, bacon and egg. All piled up on top of each other….and it’s delish. Thought I’d share the recipe with you for today’s version.
Step 1. Finely dice and fry off one onion and a clove of garlic until transparent.
Step 2. Chop up some bacon into little pieces and throw that in with the onions.
Step 3. Once the bacon starts to brown….add 3 large peeled and grated potatoes.
Step 4. Stir in a couple of handfuls of washed spinach.
Step 5. On a fairly high heat keep tossing and stirring the potato, spinach, bacon and onion mixture…..have a little nibble along the way and season to taste with pepper, parsley, chives and a pinch of salt.
Step 6. In a separate non stick pan fry up a couple of eggs in a good knob of salted butter….I suggest over easy for this recipe but cook them to your taste. Poaching is also very nice and worth the effort….but if you can’t be arsed, like I usually can’t, then frying works just fine too.
Step 7. Make a couple of slices of toast whilst the eggs are cooking…..don’t forget to give the potatoes a quick flip and stir while you are at it too.
Step 8. Butter the toast. Get a nice big scoop of the potato/bacon/spinach/onion mixture and place on top of one piece of the toast. Slice the other piece of toast and serve on the side.
Step 9. Balance the 2 over easy eggs on top of the toast and potatoes.
Step 10. Eat.
There are a few different versions I make. Sometimes I make the onions and potatoes but cook the bacon separate in big strips. I’ll stack that on later. Sometimes I stack toast, ham, potatoes, bacon then eggs. Sometimes I top with Hollandaise sauce. Sometimes I stack with scrambled egg on top.
You can think of your own versions too and be sure to let me know…..but stacking it all up, one ingredient on top of the next is really yummy.
Try it….you might just like it. Breakfast….Stacked….as it should be 🙂
