One of our employees once made the statement, “For Yvonne, potatoes are their own food group”. It’s true. I love potatoes in any form. And tomatoes come second on my list of favorite foods. Well, maybe third. Chocolate has to be tied with potatoes for the number one spot. Anyway, I created this delicious combination of potatoes, tomatoes and cheese for breakfast. Apparently it’s on our guests’ list of favorites too, because we served it this morning and the plates came back clean. You can use any type of potato you want. If I’m using redskins or Yukon Gold I leave the skin on. If you’re in a hurry, just grab some frozen Southern Style Hash browns.
