This weekend was nothing to write home about. See: we slept a lot and watched Netflix on loop. Instead of boring you with all of that, I figured I would share a recipe I made on Friday for dinner. We received Weeknight Gluten Free for the wedding and we’ve been conquering recipes left and right (polenta pizza coming later this week!). It’s an amazing cookbook and if you’re gluten free, 100% worth the money. Heck, even if you’re not I’d probably buy it, but I love cooking so I suppose my opinion is a bit biased.
Admittedly, this recipe was out of the box for us, but I’m shifting us more toward wholesome, fresh meals instead of meaty meals. Shh! Don’t tell Dane!
You Will Need:
4 large Russet potatoes, peeled & shredded
(throwing these babies in the Vitamix was a HUGE WIN!)
3 green onions chopped and separated into green & white
3 tablespoons parsley
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 poached eggs
1 regular egg
salt, pepper to taste
1. In a bowl, combine the green part of the green onions, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon parsley and a dash of salt. Mix well and set aside.
**HOW THE HECK DO YOU POACH AN EGG?!
In a deep frying pan, bring salted water to a boil. In a liquid measuring cup, crack an egg. Pour into the boiling water. Repeat process until all 4 eggs are in the pan. Reduce heat to a simmer, then turn off. Cover pan for 2 minutes, or until egg whites set up.
WHO KNEW IT WAS THAT EASY?
2. In a bowl mix shredded potatoes, white part of the green onion, 1 (non poached) egg and 2 tablespoons parsley.
3. Bring 2 tablespoons olive oil to a sizzle in a medium-sized frying pan. Working quickly, put a scoop of potato mixture into the frying pan and smash it down into a pancake shape with your spatula. Let each side brown for about 4 minutes, then flip.
4. When all of your potato pancakes are cooked, put two on a plate, top with a poached egg and drizzle your sauce on top!
Dane took the first bite and immediately said it was like eating sour cream & onion chips. There ya have it folks!
