Although breakfast is my least favorite meal to eat, I definitely like to prepare it. For a couple years I worked at a restaurant that served breakfast, and learned a couple cool dishes. The one you see above we called a “hobo” , which may not be the most politically correct term out there for it. Luckily, the chances of offending a homeless person is pretty low, since I assume that most homeless people a) don’t have access to the internet and b) don’t visit this site when they do get online.
A hobo is probably called that because it’s made by throwing a bunch of ingredients into a single pan. As far as I know, it always contains eggs, cheese, and potatoes, and some sort of meat. I like making this dish because it’s an easy way to get rid of leftover meat, as well as ingesting a good amount of healthy coconut oil.
6 eggs, mixed
2 russet potatoes, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 cup grated cheddar cheese (we used Kerrygold Ballyshannon cheese)
1 cup pre-cooked meat (ham, bacon, salami, sausage, etc), chopped
1/4 tsp dried parsley
1/2 cup coconut oil
Warm the oil on med-high heat for a few minutes, then add the potatoes. Saute them, stirring often until the potatoes soften and start to brown. Add the onions and meat and reduce the heat to medium, continuing to saute and stir until the onions are translucent. Pour in the eggs, and let them cook for about a minute before stirring slowly. As the egg hardens, add all but a little of the cheese and stir together until the cheese melts and the eggs are cooked through. Remove from heat, and sprinkle on the rest of the cheese and the parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serves two.
Feel free to experiment with the ingredients: mushrooms, zucchini, seafood, etc.
