HASH (BROWN) It Out

I LIKE potatoes. I am not in LOVE with them. Yukon Gold & Red potatoes are the one’s I really like preparing. When I travel South I always eat at the Cracker Barrel and they have a great hashbrown casserole. Today I decided to make my version. The internet is like Disney World for Chef’s, Cook Enthusiasts & Foodies alike.

Only eating Fish & Seafood has caused me peruse the internet for meal ideas. I had some Sweet Potatoes for pie and red potatoes. The recipe called for pre-made hashbrowns but I opted out ans just combined the red & sweet potatoes. I LOVE sweet potatoes and add them to recipes suggesting potatoes.

I made eggs with mushrooms since I had them and did not want them to go bad. As I stated before most recipes I create or recreate are measured by eye.

Shredded Red Potatoes

Shredded Sweet Potatoes

Chopped Onions

Sour Cream

Melted Butter

Cream of Celery Soup

Salt

Pepper

Combine all ingredients and place in a greased dish. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. If you want it a bit more CRISP on the top then turn it to broil and broil for 3-5 minutes.

No HAM In This Burger

So this NO CHICKEN or TURKEY kick has its GOOD days & BAD days. Today was A GOOD DAY (Ice Cube voice). I’ve been preparing Fish & Veggie dishes for the past 3 months. Again GOOD days & BAD days. I’m a Chef so I cook chicken, turkey & beef for my clients and its CHALLENGING as all outdoors. I have eaten a few pieces of chicken but my body did not respond well to my fall off the wagon. So I’ve decided I either have to come up with a way to combat the rection from my body or not eat chicken again. The jury’s still out on this… I took some fresh Salmon and put it in the food processor to make Salmon Burgers. I couldn’t see buying pre-packaged Salmon Burgers. This way I can season them as I wish. I even added some shrimp to the mixture along with red, orange & yellow peppers. I also added an egg & bread crumbs to bind the mixture together. I made patties and refrigerated them for 2 hours….This *Gives the seasoning time to marry with the fish *Gives the mixture time to bind together While this was refrigerated I create some SOUTHERN SLAW and made Sweet Potato Fries…I also createda spicy mayo. Siracha & Mayo.
