Crumbs in Our Pages: Chef Michael Smith’s Kitchen
Mornings are the best time of the day – don’t you agree? That includes the best meal of the day – Breakfast! Hands down my very favorite meal to prepare and to eat, breakfast starts us off in a great way. Those unhurried family weekend breakfasts are one of life’s happy moments.
In this cookbook, Chef Michael Smith shares 100 of his favorite easy recipes. He believes strongly that food is for sharing, creating, fun, exploring and that food is personal. This is a beautiful, straight forward cookbook to guide us through simple delicious recipes. I appreciated how the book is broken down into separate sections with pictures for most of the recipes.
In keeping with my favorite meal to fix and eat, I chose from his Breakfast section – Potato Bacon Cheddar Bake. I’m telling you this was so easy, it was almost a crime. I used my cast iron skillet and that was the only pan to clean up.
Here’s how it goes:
- Saute the bacon until brown. Set aside on a paper towel.
- Then saute your potato in your leftover bacon fat about 15 minutes.
- Add some garlic for flavor and pour in eggs, green onions, salt and pepper and top with cheese.
- Bake until firm.
I served this with fruit. It was so easy and delicious!
Disclosure – Yes, Mornings are my favorite time of day and yes I do love breakfast to go with that time of day. My confession is that I love Breakfast for dinner about as much as I love it during its appointed time. We actually cooked and ate this delicious meal early one evening. This recipe can be a great supper on a Tuesday night when the house is rocking and the family is going in 4 different directions. The leftovers weren’t bad either.
