My friend, the one that was in from out of town, came over to my apt on his last day here so we could go grab brunch and say our farewells.
Bu when he got here, he goes, “So what’s for breakfast?”
Um… excuse me?
He’s like, “Yeah I’m thinking bacon and eggs, potatoes…that sort of thing.”
Wait a min…we’re not going out?
See the problem when friends read your blog, is that they start acting all entitled and shit.
Expecting a g*ddamn feast everything they come over.
Like you owe them the food you eat.
Listen people, the answer is fucking no. Alright?
No you do not get to eat the shit I eat, because you feel like it.
You can only get it if you’re around when I’m making it.
I mean what, it’s not your birthday. Christmas is over baby.
I do not.
Owe you shit, alright?
I mean it’s fucking amazing….the entitlement..
“So how come you don’t cook like this when I’m around?”
What is this, a g*ddamn reality show?
This is my house alright, my dojo.
I cook whatever I want whenever I g*ddamn well please.
That said, I made him his
Bacon Pancetta, Eggs & Potatoes breakfast.
He was already on his way out so you know…whatever.
Plus, it shut him the fuck up which is what this was all about in the first damn place.
Bacon Pancetta, Eggs & Potato Hash
What I Used.
2 cups Pancetta bits (or diced Bacon bits). 4 cups Finely Diced Potatoes. 1 cup Milk (Soymilk for me). ½ Onion (roughly chopped). Eggs. Salt. Pepper. ½ cup Fine Diced Scallions (green part only).
What I Did.
Heat a large pan under med-high flame and add the Pancetta.
Let cook for about 5 mins, stirring frequently to scrape any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.
Then add in the chopped onion.
Cook, stirring often, until the onions start to turn translucent.
Add in the diced potatoes.
Let cook for about 3 mins, still doing the stirring thing.
Then add in the milk/soymilk and season with salt & pepper.
Stir, then cover and let cook for about 10 mins or until the potatoes are tender.
If the liquid has evaporated before the potatoes are ready, add in a bit more milk/soymilk.
