Simply Potatoes Spring Review and Giveaway!
When I received the opportunity to Simply Potatoes again for my blog, I was all over that. I honestly love Simply Potatoes. I buy them all the time. They make my life easier and they are tasty.
I know I could grate my own potatoes but why? I know that's not very homemaker of me but with work and all the other things in my life, I take shortcuts when it comes to cooking.
Simply Potatoes come in several varieties such as: Shredded Hash Browns, Southwest Style Hash Browns, Diced Potatoes with Onion, Homestyle Slices, Red Potato Wedges and Rosemary and Garlic Potato Wedges. I always have a pack of the Shredded Hash Browns in the refrigerator. I also us the Diced Potatoes with Onion because hubby loves home fries.
I use them for breakfast all the time. I also make my version of Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole. This time I decided to try a new recipe so I went on the Simply Potatoes website to search for something new.
I found a recipe for Cheesy Hashbrown Cups. I decided to make someething like this but my way. I get fresh eggs from a friend at work so I wondered if I could make a little nest of hashbrowns and cook an egg in them. I don't have a recipe because my cooking is willy-nilly but it was easy.
Once they were done, I placed some shredded cheese into the nest. Then I cracked a whole egg and inside the hashbrown nest. I put it back in the oven for another 15 minutes until the egg cooked.
When I took them out, the egg was cooked perfectly. I put a little fresh thyme on top for presentation sake. They were delicious. This was a perfect recipe for a nice breakfast or brunch. You can also add other ingredients like sausage, bacon, herbs or anything else that sounds good.
There you have it. Simply Potatoes are one of those products that I love and will continue buying. I give Simply Potatoes two thumbs up!
