Before I was a stay at home mom and had jobs that paid me monetarily instead of in baby cuddles, I rarely experienced a 9-5 work schedule. I’ve been employed as a hostess at a restaurant in the evenings, a manager at a coffee shop in the wee hours of the morning and a massage therapist on the weekends. I have never been very comfortable in a corporate setting so I gravitated towards work that was more flexible, social and low stress.
The one experience of working a 9-5 job that I always yearned for was the excitement of the coming weekend. It was as if I could hear a collective sigh of relief on Friday at 5pm. My husband works that 9-5 grind, so these days I feel I get to experience a bit of that excitement. Friday night means that for 2 whole days our family is together, having fun. Sunday morning is my favorite. We brew coffee, read the Sunday comics and enjoy my hubby’s perfect breakfast potatoes. So heavenly.
Easy like Sunday morning breakfast potatoes
*makes 6 servings*
• 6 russet potatoes
• 3 garlic cloves
• 1 sprig rosemary
• 2 tbsp paprika
• 2 tbsp garlic powder
• 1 tbsp cumin
• 2 tbsp salt
• 1/3 cup sunflower oil (use any cooking oil you’d like.)
1.Rinse potatoes and chop into bite sized chunks.
2. Place potatoes in a large pot cover completely with water and boil for 8-10 minutes until just soft.
3. Drain potatoes, place in large frying pan and turn heat to medium.
4. Cook potatoes for a few minutes and add spices and toss together.
5. Next add half of oil and mix around until coated.
6. After a few more minutes add rosemary and garlic.
7. Leave everything in pan for a few minutes without stirring so you get a nice caramelization on the potatoes. Flip potatoes so they can caramelize evenly. (After first flip, add the rest of the oil) Repeat this process until potatoes are finished.
8. Potatoes will be finished when all pieces are evenly cooked and nice and crunchy on the edges, about 10-12 minutes total pan frying time.
We usually enjoy these potatoes with an omelette of sorts and of course a perfectly brewed cup of coffee. My idea of decadence on a lazy Sunday morning. 🙂
