Breakfast for dinner and a recipe

One of our most favorite things in the world is to cook breakfast food at dinner time.  Since we're rarely ever up early enough to cook these things in the morning, it just works for us to make it a night meal.
The other night, I was thumbing through my Pioneer Woman cookbook and drooling over everything.  When I saw the eggs in the hole, I knew what we would be having that night!
I decided to whip up some hash brown potatoes and turkey bacon to go along with it, and boy was it yummy!
We wish you could have been there :)

Don't judge my unwashed hair...being a SAHM allows for these things to happen every now and then.

We even got to put that delicious jam that we made last month to good use.

Yummy Hashbrown Potatoes
4 or 5 small red potatoes (you can use gold, but we love red)
1/4 cup canola oil
1 onion
salt and pepper to taste
any other seasonings you like
Cube potatoes leaving a little skin and boil until just tender.  Be sure to not over cook potatoes or they'll be too soggy.  While potatoes are boiling, heat canola oil and chop onion. (I always use a cast iron skillet.)  Add onions to oil and allow to cook until tender...I usually like mine a little brown.
Drain potatoes and add to onions.  Add seasoning.  Stir everything together then allow potatoes to cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side so they'll have time to brown.  There's nothing better than a crispy edge  on your hashbrowns.
