I trust that 2015 has been treating you well so far.
If you've been following this blog for a while, you will know that I am not big on making resolutions, but every now and then, throughout the year, I make an attempt to eat breakfast. I am the kind of person that wants to wake up each morning and be surprised by what I find on my plate for breakfast. While I am quite content to eat the same thing 2 to 3 days in a row for lunch or dinner, that is not the case when it comes to breakfast. I seek variety: savoury and sweet (more savoury), heavy and light, liquid and solids.
Here's the thing, because I want breakfast to be a surprise and something different daily, I find that I cannot plan what I want to have for breakfast the day or night before, this generally results in me not having breakfast at all. If I am not rushing to get out of the house, invariably, I'll have tea.
The other day I got up and felt like eating potatoes for breakfast. Ah, a rare occasion that I actually knew what I wanted to eat for breakfast. These potatoes were done cooking in under half an hour. I like that.
There's no particular recipe. All you need are potatoes, oil or butter if you prefer, salt and pepper. I used a dry all purpose seasoning for my potatoes and finished them off with chopped chives.
I had mine with a fried egg.
