Farmer’s Market Breakfast

This dish is so named because we pick up most of the ingredients at the farmer’s market, especially in winter.  It’s our go-to weekend breakfast that keeps us full until dinnertime. It’s also pretty easy to make and a great way to get a few servings of vegetables first thing.

For 2 people

Ingredients:

3–4 strips bacon
2 large potatoes or the equivalent
½ onion, chopped into bits
3 cloves garlic, chopped into bits
5–6 mushrooms (be careful about mushrooms!)
1 generous bunch of leafy greens (kale, chard, spinach, whatever is fresh)
Eggs
Cheese (optional)
Hot pepper flakes (essential, depending upon your palate)

Directions:

1. Cut the bacon into medium-size bits and start frying it over high heat in a cast-iron skillet.

2. Wash the potatoes, cut out the bad bits; peel if you must. Score them with a fork and put them in the microwave whole for 2 to 4 minutes until they are almost done.

3. Chop the heated potatoes into medium-size chunks and add them to the skillet (with the bacon). Stir to evenly coat them in the bacon fat.

4. Let potatoes cook with the bacon for a few minutes. When the potatoes start to crisp up, add the onion bits and garlic. Stir.

5. Add the chopped mushrooms. Stir.

6. When everything is just about ready, fry the eggs in another skillet.

7. At the last minute, add the greens to the potato, bacon, and mushroom mixture. Stir, allowing the heat of the other ingredients to cook them just slightly.

8. To serve, add a whopping spoonful of the vegetable mixture to a plate. Add grated cheese (if you wish). Add the egg. Add a splash of hot pepper flakes (if you wish).

Enjoy!

    Love this ! Except for the part about microwaving the spuds…I like to steam a few potatoes and keep them in the fridge for impromptu recipes like this. We do not use a microwave for health reasons. Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

    Such a wonderful, healthy breakfast recipe… until I got to the part about microwaving the potatoes!! Oh my, NO! The microwave instantly destroys any nutritional value in food that is microwaved. Not to mention the radiation that is emitted from those things. I do not own one!

    There are convection toster ovens that cook foods faster than a regular oven. Try planning ahead and cooking your spuds that way, or cook them the night before, so they are ready to use at breakfast time the next day.
