breakfast for dinner.

20 November 2011

Sometimes breakfast for dinner is just so good. It's like comfort food. I am amping-up the breakfast with french fries and wine. Breakfast for dinner is also so easy & quick, which is nice on a weekday when you are tired & hungry. 

the menu.
4 organic free-range eggs, cooked over-easy
french fries
2 oranges, sliced (and for health measure)
red wine for the lady & lager for the gentlemen
(& more birthday cake for dessert!)

for the french fries.
2 large potatoes, scrubbed
vegetable oil for frying (I used 2-3 inches in the pot)
maldon sea salt

  1. Cut potatoes in half horizontally; cut each half into 1/3-inch-thick fries. 
  2. Place cut fries in a bowl of cold water; let soak 1/2 hour. Remove from water and dry thoroughly
  3. Heat oil to 300° in a  large heavy pot. Working in batches, fry potatoes, stirring occasionally, until lightly golden, 4 to 5 minutes. 
  4. Drain fries on a cookie rack set on top of a sheet pan; let cool. Once you've fried all potatoes, raise heat to 375°. Working in batches, fry again until dark brown and crispy, 2 minutes. 
  5. Drain on rack; sprinkle with salt and serve.

happy eatings & cheers!
