Pin It Now! This is my life...join me...
SO frustrated!! I so hate when a dish just doesn't come out right (yes, I'm a bloody perfectionist)...I mean not even close. I tried to make a "quick and easy" hash-brown and egg dish. Quick and easy my ass. I figured I could just shred the potatoes and throw them in the cast iron skillet and they'd brown. Um, NO. They weren't looking good so I googled it. Found out I had done it all wrong. So, I dumped the whole thing in the sink. (thank goodness I had bought extra potatoes). I started over.
Thinking this is going to work this time, I tried to get them to brown. Nope, not happening, at least not like the pix on the blog I was using for reference. So I figured, screw it, my kids won't know they are supposed to be all crispy. I add the cheese and crack four eggs on top. Put it in the oven.
Now, I've never baked eggs before. So I keep looking at them...how the hell do you know if the whites are set??? Tried to google that...no luck. I end up overcooking the eggs.
I dish out servings for me and the girls. The eggs taste like rubber, the hash browns were mush, and the onions mixed in gave a horrible taste. Dinner review: Awful!! For the first time, I gave my kids something else to eat other than what I'd made. (good thing I had other leftovers in the fridge).
Will I make this again, perhaps...it has potential...but I need to figure out what went wrong. Yuck, I can still taste it. Time for a glass of wine.
