Hash brown breakfast pizza


Every morning, my tot tells me what he wants for breakfast as if he's been thinking about breakfast all night. He wakes up, runs into my room, lays next to me and while cuddling, he tells me he wants this and that for breakfast. It's so funny. Sometimes he demands something that I don't have time for and I make something else thinking he wouldn't care much. But no...he would eat what I give him but he would talk about the menu of his choice until he gets it. So usually have to make it the next day at least. I have to admit he probably got it from me. When I have cravings, until I actually have whatever it is, I can't stop thinking about it.

And the other day, he asked for pizza for breakfast. He was half joking but I wanted to deliver his "vision" because it actually sounds like fun. And I found hash brown crust breakfast pizza. Its got all the elements he loves. Crispy hash brown crust with ham, eggs and cheese. So yummy and easy to serve and feed. I have not used frozen shredded potato before and I bought a bag of organic shredded potato for the first time. These are great! Works better than home shredded potatoes for hash because it's not moist like home version so I find it easier to make it crispy. And most of all, it's quick. Of course you can shred the potato at home but that needs to sit in a strainer for a little bit to get rid of liquid from potato. You can certainly top it with anything you like and make different versions. My tot absolutely loved it and devoured it. And left the sweetest comment, "Thank you for the yummy breakfast mommy!" That's my fuel that enables me get up and make breakfast even on a lazy morning. =)
