fast potato hash: it’s time for brunch!

schnelle kartoffelpfanne

if you’re scrolling through instagram, you could almost believe there’s only avocado toast, porridge, acai bowls or yogurt with granola available for breakfast or brunch. maybe even eggs benedict but that’s really it. therefore I created this delicious fast potato hash to broaden your horizon…

good morning sunshine

you already know that I’m a huge breakfast fan although to be honest, I usually stick to some kind of yogurt with müsli/granola or porridge as well. savory dishes will only be served when being out, on vacation or on holidays like easter. it’s a shame…

buuut to be accurate this fast potato hash with fried egg could be consumed at any time of the day. though egg dishes always let me think of breakfast, which is why it’s perfectly suitable for brunch. so, I’ll try to make some more time for breakfast and prepare such delicious treats more often. after all, I don’t want to forgo any good stuff, I could have enjoyed 😉

what are you usually having for breakfast or brunch? and are you changing it every once in a while or are you a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast like me?
