What I Made for Dinner: April 2 & 3, 2010

Shepherd's pie; Hash browns fry-up.

Rounding out our Passover series were two delightful, unleavened meals.  And only one included bacon!

The shepherd's pie wasn't exactly genuine because I made it with the chicken left over from our seder instead of with lamb.  But everything else was authentic, following this recipe

The very best thing I made this entire week was the fry-up I had a bad dream about last week.  Everyone should have this in the rotation!  In the biggest non-stick pan or griddle you can find, heat a couple of teaspoons of vegetable oil.  In the oil, add sliced mushrooms; on the other side of the pan, lay about six slices of bacon.  When the mushrooms begin to soften and the bacon starts to crisp, flip the bacon and sprinkle hash brown potatoes all over the pan.  When the potatoes have browned on one side, add some sliced tomatoes, if you like them, moving the potatoes aside so the tomatoes make contact with the pan.  Flip the potatoes.  Finally, crack about six eggs in various spots throughout the pan, tilting the pan so the whites spread over everything.  Continue to cook until the egg whites are set and the yolks are as firm as you like them.  Salt and pepper to taste, and serve.

That is some good food right there.  And okay, it's not kosher (although omit the bacon and you're in business there), but it's unleavened!  And versatile!  You could add more veggies; you could omit the potatoes; you could serve it with hollandaise sauce.  Even better, having eaten my bad dream, maybe I won't have it anymore.

Tonight we picked up some salads and that should just about do it for this year's Passover week.  Back to regularly-scheduled pasta tomorrow.
