For a lot of people here in the UK its the Easter holidays. It’s a shame that the weather hasn’t been very spring-like but there you go. Admittedly it hasn’t rained for a couple of weeks and today the sun is even out, however there is still an icy wind that really puts me off any major outdoor activity or any gardening.
Anyway, enough moaning about the weather. Perhaps at holiday time you fancy cooking an English breakfast – bacon, sausage, egg, tomatoes, mushrooms etc. Quite often holidays are the only time you get round to it. When I cook fried breakfast the most difficult thing is getting everything finished at the same time.
The main nightmare element is the hash browns, see picture above. They are frozen, and take about 20 minutes to cook in the oven or 15 to fry I think.
So today’s quick tip is to put your hash brown into the microwave for a minute or two to defrost it first, then finish it off in the frying pan with the eggs or bacon. It vastly reduces the cooking time and it tastes just the same!
I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays despite the weather.
