Happy Friday! I keep envisioning little fairies swooping down the chimney at night who magically clean house and fold laundry.
So far, that hasn't happened.
BUT! Breakfast can magically cook itself overnight in the appliance that keeps on giving: The CrockPot.
The Ingredients.-- bunch of red potatoes
-- 1 yellow onion
-- package of breakfast sausage (I used uncooked maple chicken sausage from Trader Joe's---I wish it had been pre-cooked so I could have chopped it up...)
-- 2 T olive oil
--a sprinkle each of kosher salt and black pepper
--wash potatoes well, and chop them into chunks. I didn't peel them because I am lazy. And it was already 11:15 at night and I turn into a pumpkin at 8:45 pacific time.
--chop up the onion (this you have to peel. if you have already taken your contacts out, your eyes will burn and water. you might need to play the "hey can you chop this onion cuz you're just so big and manly and onions don't bother your eyes" card.
--toss the veggies with the olive oil, salt and pepper.
--layer the sausage on top.
--cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
--wake up to breakfast!
--act astonished that you remembered to load the crockpot but not the coffee maker...
Waking up to breakfast is always awesome.
unless of course when it isn't.
