Column and photos by Ali Carter, Wisconsin Potato Growers Auxiliary
I recently received a text from my husband, Mike, who at the time was traveling for a Potatoes USA meeting.
It was a picture of his breakfast and a hurriedly typed message saying, “Breakfast fries. Common’Tater idea?” I responded with “Love it!” and began taking note of the ingredients I could decipher from the texted photo.
Upon his return, Mike shared the details of the hotel restaurant and his quick stop for food before hitting the road to catch a plane for home. Together, we constructed our version of Breakfast Fries and the following Sunday decided to give our new recipe a trial run.
Wow, so good! But honestly, it is hard to go wrong with crispy fries, smokey bacon and poached eggs, the latter with their golden liquid centers!
