Think hashbrowns are just for breakfast? Not anymore! These hashbrown napoleons are a unique twist on hashbrowns. Top them with just about anything to satisfy everyone at the dinner table!
Who’s favorite thing to eat at a dinner is a hashbrown? Who in their house is a short order cook? I am! I have read so many parenting articles that say to make your kids eat what you eat, keep pushing the vegetables, don’t feed them fast food, no sugar, blah, blah, blah. That works for most people. I applaud them for their efforts and the fact that their kids eat sushi at 2 years of age and all that stuff. My kids still eat macaroni and cheese and chicken fingers at 10 and 12. I used to worry about how that looked to all those other parents who were doing it the “right way” but you haven’t walked two steps in my shoes so shut your face.
I grew up in the kitchen, worked in many kitchens, and still love being in the kitchen. Those other moms say that they hate cooking and that’s why they only make one dinner. That may save time, money, and sanity for them, but for me and my house, we do it differently.
I have one child who eats all day long. He’s a growing boy. He may eat 2 dinners before “dinner” actually happens. I have another son who has ADD, a thyroid gland in his throat, and a carb addiction. His ADD affects his ability to eat certain things because of the texture and spice. His misplaced thyroid gland affects his gag reflex so other groups of foods are off limits. His medicine makes him less hungry during the day so he makes up for it between 6 and 9 pm. His small stomach makes for grazing during those hours. Throw in a husband that travels and an unusual schedule and 1 meal for all does not fit. And that is ok and what works for our family. I always have plenty of ingredients to make a variety of meals when the kids are ready to eat.
Bless you, if you have one family meal around the table, with everyone there, all eating your freshly prepared meal. My family is a little on the wacky side and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Potatoes are a big thing in my house. I just recently started eating sweet potatoes and have fallen in love with them. My oldest loves potatoes so much that he got a shirt for Christmas that has a potato on the front. Hashbrowns are our potato of choice on the weekends when we all go to breakfast, as a family, Saturday morning. This week I decided to throw my kids a curveball and make hashbrowns for one of our dinners. Breakfast for dinner? Sure thing!! Hungry Jack Hashbrowns are great all by themselves but throw in some unique toppings and you have something that everyone can enjoy together!
With all the picky eaters in my house, this was the perfect thing to make. By turning the hashbrowns into patties and keeping them warm in the oven, you can top them with whatever you have in the fridge, whatever you are in the mood for, and when you are ready to eat!
Hungry Jack Hashbrown patties are a neutral palette for any toppings. They are great on their own, ask my kids, but combine them with a fridge full of leftovers and you have a short-order dinner for everyone!
I always have a rotisserie chicken in my refrigerator. Maybe two. Shred some, add some broccoli and cheese, and put back in the oven.
My kids are big pizza eaters, but what kids aren’t, so I add some cheese and pepperoni! Mini hashbrown pizzas on the way.
Want to have your favorite BLT sandwich? Top yours with crispy bacon, fresh lettuce, and a tomato slice! There are so many ways to eat them, you will never run out of options.
