Potato Flowers Bring Mimosa Flowers

I have found a new found appreciation for brunch now that my weekends are filled with projects or homework assignments.  But I still desire to not change out of my pj’s on the weekend.  The best way to find a compromise of both is to do in home brunches.  This egg and potato dish are so easy to make but looks like it should be an overpriced dish at some fancy brunch place. So skip the crowds and savor this dish with some sparkling mimosas in the comfort of your own home!

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 red skinned potatoes
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 once cheese (I used fontina but anything will do)
  • 2 tablespoons cream/milk
  • salt and pepper
  • thyme
  • 1 tablespoon butter

How to:

  1. Begin by slicing the potatoes nice and thin.  Begin to layer them in a round pie pan in a circular pattern.  Every few slices add in some onion. Until the whole thing looks a bit like a flower.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and thyme.  Add dollops of butter scattered around the pan.
  2. Bake in a 350 oven for 25 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
  3. Beat the eggs and cream together and then pour evenly over the potatoes. Scatter the cheese around and bake for another 15 minutes until golden.
  4. Easy right?
