Is there anything better on earth than a lazy Saturday morning? That’s exactly what this Herbed Breakfast Potato Hash was made for.
The kind of morning when you snuggle under the covers while the sun streams in the window (and you stare at the dust floating in the air and it looks romantic, not horrifying), when the dog wakes up after you and then just wants to curl up on your pillow, when there’s just no pressing need to get up whatsoever. Ohh, so dreamy.
Then, the ONLY reason you even put your toes on the floor is the thought of a steaming cup of coffee and a big breakfast.
Some of those lazy mornings are made for pancakes. Or avocado toast. Some are for cinnamon buns, veggie omelettes, muffins. Or french toast and bacon.
And some are for Potato Hash.
It’s seriously one of our favorites. Potato Hash is so easy + versatile—you can toss in practically anything that’s in the fridge. Which is part of what makes it such a perfect Saturday morning meal. As long as you have a potato in the cupboard, you’ve got everything you need… no other planning ahead necessary.
This version is jam-packed with potatoes (duh), onions, peppers, Canadian bacon and a whole bunch of herbs—cause that’s what was in the fridge! It takes a little while to cook (at least longer than avo toast!), but brew that coffee, pour a mug and snuggle up on the couch while the potatoes cook down.
Then serve it up in a bowl with a good sprinkle of Parmesan…there’s simply nothing cozier.
