Pizza is not just for Dinner – Try my Breakfast Hash Brown Pizza
I can’t quite remember how this first came about.
I think I had grated some potato to make some hash to go with my eggs for breakfast, but then shaping the potato into patties on the tray, I thought hey why don’t I just make one big hash brown that I can put everything on top off, which then of course popped the idea into my head for a pizza base and well as it was for breakfast – It just had to be a Breakfast Hash Brown Pizza.
For my toppings I added scrambled egg, ham, little bit of cheddar and spring onion served with a side of balsamic tomatoes (minus the spinach) and some slices of orange.
You could vary this Breakfast Hash Brown Pizza with so many other toppings though too. Add some chopped tomatoes, spinach and then crack an egg over the top, a little bit of cheese and cook in the oven. Or add sausage or bacon instead of ham.
Also if you are a sandwich at lunch time kind of person, this will free up your HEb for later. I often find having a good source of protein and veggies at breakfast, makes me have a much better day all round, as it keeps you well satiated for longer.
This of course is also gluten free and can be dairy free and paleo friendly if you omit the cheese.
What yummy toppings will you add to your Breakfast Hash Brown Pizza?
