Pour Some Vegan on Me: Breakfast Potatoes that will rock your socks off!

What is breakfast, without breakfast potatoes? It's a sad, sad meal... This recipe is a cross between hash browns and potato pancakes. A warning, in advance, this will ruin your baking dish, but you won't care when you taste the finished product.

What you will need: (as pictured above)

4 Potatoes - I used California Golden, because once you've had them, you won't want any other kind.
1/2 medium sized onion - or 1 small onion
3 TSP of Garlic Powder (NOT SALT - DON'T USE GARLIC SALT. Just don't...)
1/4 TSP Baking Powder
1/4 TSP Black Pepper
1/2 TSP Salt
2 TBSP Flour
3 TSP Egg Replacer (You won't be mixing them as directed on the package. You just want the powder)
2 TBSP Olive Oil

You will also need:

Your food processor with the grating blade, or a grater
1 - 8"x8" or 2 QT baking dish

Preheat your oven to 375*

Step 1 - Peel your potatoes

Step 2 - Grate your Potatoes and Onion
Place them in a *teal bowl
(*teal is optional)

Step 3 - Add all your dry ingredients 
Use Purple Spatula to coat all of the potatoes and onion shreds. 
You won't have to add any water/broth, because the onion and potatoes are watery enough.

Add the 2 TBSP of Olive Oil and toss some more

Step 4 - Press Mixture into WELL OILED Baking Dish.

Place Baking dish in the oven on the center rack. 
It will take between 45-60 minutes for it to cook through.
You're dish will get crusty, as will your potatoes - on the OUTSIDE
On the INSIDE they will get creamy and UNBELIEVABLY delicious. 

In my house - this is a serving for 2. 
In the real world, it should be a serving for 4 - 1 potato per person. 
My husband is Irish/German and I have lot of Eastern European in my blood.
We like the potato.
A lot.

This recipe is my favorite breakfast potato recipe, because it's creamy and different than most things you'll find out there. And it, just like most of my other recipes, is versatile.
Not a fan of Garlic? Switch it for Onion Powder.
Really love peppers? Grate up some Red Pepper or some Red and Green and make them Fiesta Potatoes!

This recipes goes great with a plate of pancakes, fresh fruit, coffee, and family.

Happy Eating!
