Breakfast w/ Potatoes, Mushrooms and Onions…

I love breakfast ~ early morning ~ the aroma of that first cup of coffee...  It’s my favorite meal of the day, that I would gladly eat, any meal of the day!

It’s about crispy bacon, fried eggs over-easy, home fries, whole-wheat toast with cherry preserves, and a cup of strong steaming black coffee. But then, I’ve been known to eat a slice of apple pie for breakfast also…

This morning, I had fresh mushrooms and leftover baked potatoes on hand --- diced the potatoes with the skin on, tossed them into the skillet, added a chopped onion, and fried it all to a crispy-deep-golden-brown.  I used to fry them in bacon grease, but those days are gone, using as little oil as possible now.

It’s a delicious savory side dish for breakfast ~ it’s heaven to me!                           

I always have to have breakfast before I can leave the house…

How about you, are you a breakfast lover? 

Home fries with Mushrooms and Onions


1 pound mushrooms, sliced

3 baked potatoes, diced with skin on

1 onion, diced

Salt and pepper, to taste



In a large skillet, over high heat, pour enough oil to coat bottom of pan.

When a slight amount of smoke appears, add mushrooms to skillet.

Season with salt and pepper.

Cook and stir until they develop a dark golden sear.

Remove from pan, set aside.

Add enough oil again, to coat bottom of skillet.

When hot, add potatoes, reduce heat to medium-high.

Fry potatoes until crispy and they start to stick together.

Add onions.

Season with salt and pepper, and combine.

Reduce heat and simmer until onions are soft and golden.

Add mushrooms to the mixture, heat through.

Serves 4-5


Simply perfect!


  1. Breakfast is my favorite meal too! And, I love everything on your plate. Left-over pizza is good too.


  2. Breakfast is the meal of the day...a good breakfast makes for a day full of energy.
    Looks so good!!

  3. Looks like a Bistro breakfast..Went to a French one in Mtl..last Sat.. Samll cubed fries..(in duck fat).. with the most decandent cheese sauce on top..Honestly?
    A treat! Had a zip to it too..served in ramekins:)
    Not my usual fare of course:)

  4. That's funny. We had almost the very same breakfast last Sunday. It's our day to indulge. Hope you will make it to Larry's blogger party this year! Would love to meet you.

  5. Perfect, Pam! Yes! Always breakfast here! Our three daughters never left the house for school without breakfast, either, even the one who was not much for many routine breakfast foods. We always came up with something for her, too.

  6. Pam, We both love a great breakfast! My better half would really love those fried, not so much as I just don't care for mushrooms. The weather update you sent me from Chicagoland was depressing to say the least! Amazing amounts of snow in your area this depressing temperatures too! Spring is coming...believe it or not! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  7. Que cosa tan rica para un buen desayuno

  8. Wow that sounds good. Just wish we could get decent bacon here in France! Have a good day Diane

  9. look delicious!! Love this breaksfast!!

  10. oh,golly!!! looks so very mouth-watering,curl my toes delicious!!

  11. This is my kind of breakfast and I never, never leave home without eating breakfast. It's starts my day off right and keeps me from being hungry around eleven. My husband loves to use left-overs like you have for breakfast. Great post.

  12. Pam,
    We always have breakfast everyday. This is the type of breakfast we have for our weekend breakfasts.

    During the week I have oatmeal, and Scott has cereal or an English muffin.

  13. Hands down, breakfast is my favorite and I can't wait until the weekends arrive to make a plate similar to yours. Great photo.

  14. Looks pretty tasty. We enjoy breakfast here. It is easier to make
    for dinner since mornings are a blurr.

    M : )

  15. I love a big breakfast like that but only seem to have it when we're on vacation. Delicious!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
