Potato + egg = happy



You are not apt to learn the slightest thing here.

You will merely catch a glimpse into what makes me happy.

Potatoes and eggs.

That's what makes me happy.


Slice them thin.


Season with salt and pepper and fry in extra virgin olive oil.


Drop in a couple fresh eggs.


I like it with a hunk of cheese on the side, Grana Padano here.

I am a simple -- happy -- man.

Uh, yum! I love simple prep. and fried eggs. Now you've gone and made me want to go cheese shopping!!

I'm making that right now!!! Yay for days off and getting to enjoy breakfast!

Kate: Can't get simpler than this one, yeah. Glad you liked.

Uke Mochi: So, how was it?

BTW, this will sound weird, but in all the years I've been eating this, I don't think I've ever had it for breakfast. Always for lunch, or late night.

Looks like Mz. Meatball is off the plate somewhere, leaving you to your own culinary devices, Mr. M.
Nice concept, and I like the photos, especially that first one.
But I hope you're taking your Lipitor. That hunk of cheese alone is enough to stop a heart.

tobyty's comment is very encouraging...I like those egg yolks before you scrambled them up...so beautifully rounded and gorgeous. My kinda dish!:D

Mister Meatball said...

tobyty: I do not take drugs, I take chances. But thanks for your concern.

Jeannie: The eggs are from a local farm here. Thanks for dropping by.

Wishing I had had potatoes with the eggs I just finished. I shall now think about that possibility all day.

These are the kinds of meals my Dad would make for us if my Mom wasn't home. Truth be told, they were some of the best dinners. This looks delicious.

My grandmother made this, too, only the potatoes were cut up into little cubes and browned probably in butter. No cheese, though.

Ladies and Jim: This dish does seem to hit home, doesn't it. I just spent a couple days with family, who follow this blog it appears (hi folks!), and was amazed at how such a simple food touches so many.
