Step #1: Wake up. Realize that it’s not as late as you though it was, that’s the channel being displayed on the cable box, not the time.

Step two #2: Get downstairs and start the coffee, asap!

Step #3: start to warm griddle, put on a few strips of bacon.


take 1/3 of 5lb bag of small red potatoes
-use large side of grater, and grate
-salt & pepper

chop up 1/2 a medium onion into tiny pieces (half the size of potato slices)

move bacon down on griddle – use bacon grease to cook homefries

fresh french baguette makes a good french toast cause it's soft!

French Toast

In a wide/shallow dish dish, whisk the following:

4 eggs
4 tbspn buttermilk
1 tspn vanilla extract

Chop up baguette into small-ish slices – then slice in half.
Soak quickly so that the bread doesn’t get too soggy.

When bacon is finished cooking use same grease (after you drain it into the grease trap on the griddle) to cook french toast. Cook until lightly browned.

This many eggs were enough to cook enough slices of french toast for all four of us to eat breakfast. Half a pound of bacon, and 
 just enough homefries for all of us. Next time I’m going to add paprika to the homefries, I’m fairly certain if I put a good amount in, you won’t really be able to taste paprika, but it’ll have a fuller flavor — and aren’t 99% of homefries seasoned with paprika anyways?

Step 4: Eat. Eat. Eat!
