At Least Twice A Week

Archive for the ‘Pork’ Category

It was my pick this week for Martha Mondays and I knew I was going to want to do a brunch type thing today so I picked the Potato and Zucchini Hash from May’s Everyday Food.

It’s so easy.   Two russet potatoes, One zucchini, one onion, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Chop everything into the same size pieces.  I didn’t and it took awhile for the potatoes to cook but not long for the zucchini.

Heat the olive oil then add the potatoes and onion.  Season with salt and pepper.  Keep the heat at medium high so the outside of the potatoes get crusty and crunchy.  Toss them around so that all sides brown.  Then I turned the heat down a bit so the potatoes would finish cooking through. 

When the potatoes are cooked through add the zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally.

Top with a fried egg.  The recipe calls for it to be sunny side up but I can’t do that so I cooked it on both sides but left the yoke runny.

Although it took longer than the 30 minutes that Everyday Food says it takes, it was really good.  Hubby loved it, Son wouldn’t touch it (he’s at the no onion and is that a vegetable? stage).  I thought it was wonderful.  The potatoes had crunch and the zucchini was cooked perfectly.  The yolk of the egg made a little sauce for the dish.  It made a lot and I am thinking of using the leftovers in breakfast tacos during the week.  Reminded me a bit of cottage fries with added zucchini.

As an addition, I also made the Savory French Toast BLT from the same Everyday Food.  Son made the french toast and I loaded it with lettuce, tomato and bacon.  This along with the hash made a great brunch.  The bread was sweet without being overpowering and the recipe calls for cooking the bacon in the oven which is what I always do so I knew it would be could.  We will definitely be making these when we have breakfast for dinner. 

I hope everyone else on Martha Mondays enjoyed my pick as much as I did.

Since Son wasn’t eating what we were making and he was making the french toast for us anyway so he made the rest of his breakfast.  It looked like an awesome meal.  He said it was the best and I thought it looked delicious.

The weather is bad and neither Hubby nor I want to go out to the grill.  We took the next best alternative and turned on the oven.

I made this up as we went.  And after the smoke settled on – wrapping them in foil or not, we got things going.

I made a sauce with 1 1/2 cups of catsup, 2 teaspoons dry mustard, 1 tsp red pepper flakes, 1 tablespoon honey,  1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce, 1/2 medium onion (diced small), and 3 gloves of garlic (diced).

Heat the oven to 350.  Season the ribs with salt and pepper and place on rack in a roasting pan.  Brush on sauce heavily.  Bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours basting every 20 minutes or so.

They were pretty good.  Not the best but when you can’t get outside, they will do just fine.
