Breakfast for Dinner: Scramble Bowls

Still working on cleaning out the freezers. We had shredded potatoes – you know when potatoes are on sale for 2 #10 bags for ….. You stop and think what would I do with 20 lbs. of potatoes? Here you go! You can prepare your potatoes for what you may want to use them for much cheaper than buying bags of french fries or hash browns. Most of the time those have other ingredients in them too but you can easily peel and slice potatoes, then drop them into a pot of boiling salted water until they soften a bit. Place drained potatoes on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray and freeze them until frozen solid. Remove potatoes from tray and place in freezer bags until ready to use. Remember raw potatoes must be partially boiled or fried before freezing as they have a high water content and Yukon Golds are some of the best for freezing.

Verdict: My family loves breakfast for dinner and this is a great way to throw together all your favorites into one place. You can add different cheeses, vegetables, and spices that your family would like. My favorite is cheddar cheese, onions, hash brown potatoes, and a good sprinkle of black pepper.
