Breakfast Salad just made your mornings all the more delightful. Warm herbed potatoes, fresh vegetables, an egg and peppered bacon.
Breakfast is one of the best perks of working from home. I know you may think a work from home perk should be like pajamas till noon, or bottomless coffee, or whatever music I feel like, explicit lyrics or not, blasting from my speakers while I check tasks off my list, BUT.
Breakfast is pretty high up on my list.
During my days of fleeing from the house before 6 a.m. I never got to eat things like peppered bacon unless it was Sunday… and then I just really didn’t want to wash a pan while I did all the laundry in the whole entire house and tried to find a minute to clean the bathrooms, so I just ate cereal.
In case you were wondering, run-on sentences are another perk of working at home.
Back to breakfast though, peppered bacon and warm herbed potatoes over greens are like the highlight of my Wednesday mornings. It makes me happy to taste test all the things for you.
The first time I ever had a breakfast salad I was with my sisters at this happy kinda hippie little cafe in the mountains. Salad in the morning was mind-blowing for me, and I’m not sure why it never occurred to me before, but I am usually waaaaay behind on everything trendy, and so whatever.
Here we are.
I KNEW I had to incorporate these warm herbed potatoes into the recipe. I have recently become slightly obsessed with these little bitty potato varieties.
They are so cute!!! And you might remember from my gingerbread biscotti that I have a slight fascination with tiny foods.
So I went with this petite fingerling potato melody for the breakfast salad pictured, though you could definitely just cut a few red-skinned potatoes into smaller pieces.
The dressing for this salad is made with maple syrup and Dijon mustard. It’s sweet and perfectly complements the spice of the peppered bacon.
Eggs are cooked to order, and you know me -- I like a runny yolk all the way. But do your thing.
Scrambled, hard boiled, poached, over hard -- all the eggs would be awesome in this salad.
