Breakfast-for-dinner potato mash'em up - a recipe

Perhaps it needs a snazzier title? But the title of the blog post definitely sums up this little recipe that I've recently invented. I have been enjoying it as breakfast-for-dinner and it's mash'em up as you can add in any added extras that you fancy, thus making it your very own version.

Things you will definitely need:
  • potatoes (these can be a few small ones or one big one)
  • oil (or butter if you're feeling extravagant)
  • eggs (1 or 2, depending on how your pantry is looking that day)
  • paprika
  • salt and pepper
I would suggest adding in the following but the mash'em up idea lets you go with your own style:
  • mushrooms
  • bacon/parma ham/facon (is that how you spell it?!)
  • baked beans (these are probably best served on the side rather than mixed it, but whatever you fancy, go mash it up!)
  1. In a smallish pan boil up some water ready for the potatoes
  2. Slice potatoes thinly (about 0.5 cm)
  3. Boil potatoes for about 8-10 minutes
  4. Check the potatoes are cooked and drain them ready to pop into the frying pan
  5. Heat up some oil (or butter) and chuck in your potatoes
  6. Add your salt and pepper seasoning and give them a good swirl around so that they are coated
  7. Sprinkle over a generous pinch of paprika (either normal or smoked will work)
  8. Add in any of your additional extras such as mushrooms and bacon at this point
  9. Swirl around until everything is starting to smell delicious and the potatoes are getting a little bit crispier
  10. It's time to add your eggs now. I've been cracking them directly over the pan and then scrambling that way but you can also whisk beforehand if you're a bit worried about shells etc.
  11. Using a wooden spoon or similar, give it all a good mix up until your eggs are scrambled, your potatoes are nicely crispy, and the optional extras are all ready to go
  12. Serve with either toast or a bagel
  13. ENJOY!
I don't have a photo to accompany this post as it's probably not the most photogenic recipe you may ever see, but it is incredibly tasty and I can highly recommend giving it a go! Let me know in the comments if you do, and feel free to suggest any alternatives as optional extras - I'm always open to new food suggestions!
