Time with Ty – Brinner Edition


Good Morning and welcome to Time with Ty! This exercise in deliciousness went down a few days ago, and I must apologize for the delay in posting. No excuses, just I’m sorry. So Shelly, you may be asking, what exactly is brinner? Brinner has taken a note from the time honored tradition of brunch, but instead of a combination, brinner is breakfast FOR dinner. A typical breakfast in our household consists of scrambled eggs, fried bacon, pan fried potatoes, and bacon toast, so of course this is what we went with when we decided to do brinner.

The Recipes (serves 3):

First thing first – cook 1 lb of bacon in 2 TBS olive oil to your taste (I like mine extra crispy). Typically, you want to go with pork, but if you use another type, you might want to add butter to the toast recipe for that extra bit of flavor. Remove bacon from pan, retaining the oil. Meanwhile, in another pan, cook the next two recipes:

Pan-fried Potatoes

2 Tbs olive oil

5 small red potatoes

salt to taste

pepper to taste

1-2 tsp corriander

1. Cut the potatoes into small, uniform pieces:


2. Heat oil in pan (not the one with the bacon grease in it) over medium heat. Add potatoes and spices, cook medium to medium-low heat stirring occasionally until potatoes are golden brown.

3. Remove potatoes from pan and set aside.

Scrambled Eggs

2 Tbs olive oil

6 large eggs

2 Tbs garlic powder

1/4 cup salsa

2 Tbs milk

2 Tbs grated parmesan cheese

3 Tbs shredded cheddar

salt and pepper to taste

1. Whisk the eggs until smooth, then add the spices, cheeses, salsa, and milk, and combine well.

2. Heat oil in same pan that was used for potatoes over medium low heat. Add egg mixture and cook, scraping the eggs off of the bottom of the pan regularly with a non-metal spatula or spoon.


3. Cook until eggs are still juicy, but no longer raw.


Meanwhile, get on the toast:

Bacon Toast

3 slices of bread

1 pan with bacon grease

1. Heat pan over medium heat. Soak bread in grease on both sides, then fry until golden brown. Plate and serve!

If you’re feeling really frisky, you can add a number of different things to the toast. On this day, Ty added some grated parmesan to his. But Morgan likes to do this thing that he calls bacon powder toast crunch:

powder toast

Basically, he sprinkles it with powdered sugar, cinnamon, and drizzles with syrup.

Happy cooking and good eating!
