Lent 2013 Challenge Day 38: Breakfast for Anytime

This really only works with the rules if you have a food processor to do your shredding and chopping. We chopped a whole onion and shredded three potatoes (skins and all). We mixed all that together and dumped it into our cast iron pan with a good, generous splash of oil. Stirring it up occasionally, wait until the potatoes really start to brown, then let them sit and glue themselves together a bit. With a heavy metal spatula…
… flip the whole thing over, in sections if it breaks up (which it will), and let it all get just as brown and crispy on the other side.
Meanwhile, scramble some eggs (or fry them, but since we’re on a time limit, scrambling is faster). Serve it all up with some sliced fruit. Just in under the 20 minute wire, and you get a nice picture of Spinal Tap out of it. Enjoy!
“Waitaminute, Mrs. Mackerelsnapper, OP,” you say. “Isn’t using a food processor cheating?” Perhaps. But remember that our goal is to save up enough money with our fasting to buy kitchen appliances for our local food cupboard to give to families in need? “Oh, yes,” you reply. “That’s right.” Someone REALLY nice even gave us a sizable donation so that we can donate more than the bare minimum. In about a week, we’ll go shopping and give you an update on what we were able to scrounge.
