When I was in high school I hated eating breakfast before school. In an attempt to start off my days in a healthy way my mom started making me breakfast every morning. A staple was a fried egg, deli ham rolled into a log and a hash brown potato crisped up in the toaster oven. As a trip down memory lane my mom fixed me a similar breakfast Sunday morning before we started canning:

Instead of the hash brown I cooked up some cut potatoes and onion in a pan. It was a great way to start the morning. I wanted to include this picture of my mom's cast iron skillet. Recently she and my stepdad started cooking solely in cast iron. I'm so jealous - look at this, she's making eggs in here:

This pan is so well-seasoned that she used just a smidge of butter and nothing stuck. Pretty impressive! I wish I had that kind of pan.
Pin It!

  1. Cast iron skillets are also good for hitting insolent husbands over the head. Oh...did I just type that?
