In the past two weeks I've had five or six people ask me about my stance on breakfast for dinner, or brenner. My answer? I am all for it. I could not be more in support of a meal that supports eating some of my favorite foods for dinner. Because while I love breakfast and brunch makes my heart flutter, there is just something about having a fried egg with a side of delicious for dinner.
This brenner hash is something that has been evolving for years, something that has become a staple in our dinners. At first it was nothing more than grated potatoes and cheese.
Tonight's version included eggplant, red pepper, jalapeño, red and golden potatoes, onion, and a healthy dose of garlic.
Combined with bacon and the yolk of one dippy egg—and I'm in heaven.
