I’ve always felt blessed to have a mother that was more than just a parent, she’s my best friend. 

This mother’s day I wanted more than ever to make her feel special, and what is a better way to do that then make my mother her own brunch!

Best Breakfast Potatoes (Homefries)

5# Red skin potatoes, washed and diced

1 large vidalia onion, thinly sliced

1 T spanish smoked paprika

1 t granulated garlic

1 t dried oregano

1/2 t cayenne powder

2 T olive oil

2 T butter

 

  • The easiest way to make these delish breakfast potatoes is to boil the onion and potatoes until almost tender. 
  • Drain the potatoes and onion. Get a very large skillet extremely hot, add the olive oil and let it get hot. 
  • When the oil starts to just smoke add the butter, and immediately follow with the potatoes. 
  • Make an even layer and let it sit to make a crust. Every few minutes toss the potatoes to evenly crisp all of them.
  • Add the seasoning and mix thoroughly.
  • Keep cooking until the potatoes are crispy and tender. 
  • Season generously with salt and pepper and serve. 

Enjoy!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing ladies out there!

 

Cheers!

So I have been working for Dean and Deluca for 6 months now. My work for the company has been primarily in the catering department, although I have worked in other departments. Recently I was asked to contribute to the Dean and Deluca Blog, and it was decided that I would be doing an Easter brunch article. I enlisted the help of my good friend Tom Trocola, who just happens to be an AMAZING photographer. We worked our magic together this past monday and I am very happy to say we have made a beautiful spread to showcase. The article will be going up on the website in a few weeks but I wanted to share a few pictures from the shoot! 🙂

These are lemon ricotta pancakes with a blueberry compote.

The shoot was a lot of fun and for me has made me decide the path I want to take in my career. I want to do more food writing, styling, and recipe development. I like the amount of time, focus, and detail that goes into producing these kind of productions. I hope that I can update this blog more and have higher quality photos like these to share as well.

Thank you for reading. Writing to you again soon.

Sincerely,

Sean Gallagher
