If you know me, then you know I’m a huge breakfast person. Actually, brunch is my favourite.
I love how in brunch, no rules apply. You can eat a big or small meal, indulge in sweets or savouries, or even both! It’s all fair game in brunch. It also makes space for things that otherwise wouldn’t exist in our lives, like hash browns.
Unless you’re an amazing domestic goddess (or god) who is up at the crack of dawn everyday and floats about the house sprinkling glitter, freshly baked goods, and joy, chances are your weekly breakfasts are not the most elaborate. Trust me, I’m right there with ya!
I follow a weekly routine of either smoothies or porridge. I know what I’m doing, I can do it half asleep, with a tea in one hand and a toothbrush in another. No thinking required.
When it comes to brunch though, ohoooo, the game changes. I bring out my A-game, and I play hard.
Especially since brunch usually happens around 11am, which is a waaaay more decent time to be near a stove and doesn’t revolve around early morning, rushing about the house, looking for the other damn shoe and lost keys (that always happen the be on the floor, how does that happen?!).
SO! Hash browns.
We’re also using sweet potato and parsnips for these, which I think gives it a way more delicious flavour than plain ol’ white potatoes. These babies are the perfect balance between between the apple and root veggies. You get a slight sweetness that is just so perfect alongside the salty-ness of the hash brown. It just works!
Soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside, it’s the perfect food for when you just need that extra oomph. Hung-over? Have hash browns. Feeling tired? Have hash browns. Feeling down? HASH BROWNS!
Honestly, solves all of life’s problems.
