Purple Potato Hash

What would you do with purple potatoes?  I bought them because they were on sale, and I thought to make purple potato chips.




As most things go, those potato chips were not yet made.  Sunday morning, I decided to dice one of these potatoes.  We usually have huge onions here, so I chopped up a shallot, and added both to the fry pan.  The pieces were rather small, so it didn’t take too long, perhaps 15-20 minutes. I seasoned with salt and pepper, seasoned salt and some onion powder.  Once the potatoes were soft, I added two eggs to the pan, and scrambled them into the potato mixture.  As a last minute decision, I added a slice of light Cheddar cheese and waited for it to melt.  I added an apple to my plate, and my breakfast was served.

*If you have onions that are smaller than the size of your hands, you could easily use a chopped onion, or 1/2 of said onion instead of the shallot.

*Love bell peppers, or any other peppers?  Dice them up and add to the potatoes when adding onion or shallot.  Leftover asparagus would go well, or even chopped up broccoli or cauliflower.

*Dairy free?  Skip the cheese or use your favorite replacement cheese instead

*Change the number of eggs?  Sure, you can do that!  Leave out one or both egg yolks, or add another and share with someone.

*Don’t forget the seasoned salt!  I can’t think of another dish I use it in, but it is a must for hash browned potatoes on my plate.

*I took these pictures, yet a quick look had me thinking it looked like black beans and eggs.  You know what, you could do that!
