Sunday Breakfast

I hope you all had a great weekend! This morning I woke up to beautiful weather-the sun was shining, there was a little bit of a breeze in the air.....this is the kind of weather I could live with year round.

I don't know about you, but for me, Sundays was always a big breakfast day. I remember my mom making bacon, pork roll, sausage and scrapple. My brothers and I loved Sunday only because of the awesome breakfast we would have that day. I usually ate an egg over easy sandwich on a bagel and put the bacon, pork roll and scrapple right in the middle. Hmm...I wonder why I had a weight problem when I was younger.....haha.

I haven't had one of those breakfasts in a long time, and I was definitely in the mood for a traditional Sunday breakfast yesterday. This time, I opted to swap out the bacon, porkroll, sausage and scrapple for some home fries.

I chopped up two potatoes and put them in a skillet with a tiny bit of olive oil. I covered the skillet with a lid and let them cook until they were browned.

I can't tell you how much I love making these things.

The husband was in charge of making scrambled eggs. He makes the best cheesy scrambled eggs, but sometimes I think his eyes are bigger than his stomach when it comes to portion control.

The eggs cooking.

This is what the hubby dished up for me.

Now THAT'S a lot of breakfast!

It definitely satisfied my craving for a typical Sunday breakfast.

Question of the Day:
What's your favorite breakfast food?

Until next time!

YUM! Now thats the way to start a Sunday ;) My favorite breakfasts are either eggs in a tortilla with salsa, fruit with nut butter, or a smoothie of some sort :)

I love breakfast and could eat breakfast all day long! I love having toast and almond butter, my protein pancake, or cereal and yogurt.

Yours looks delish! Aren't boys funny with portions?

My favorite breakfast in any type of omelet. I love a good ham, 4 cheese, and veggie one.

My husband has the same idea when it comes to portion.

I love big weekend breakfasts! I'm more of a pancake/waffle kinda girl though. We only ever had bacon or sausage in my house on Christmas!

Looks delicous!

My favorite sunday breakfast is pancakes, but because those aren't too healthy I usually have eggs and turkey bacon or sweet potato hash browns
