Eggsperiment. LOL

An experiment was conducted to see which potato based oven product would go best with eggs (and which I had in the freezer). Waffles, roasties, chips or croquetts.

Contrary to feedback, the chips were not fucked and the eggs were lovely and runny. The fault lays with the camera, not the food.

The results are as follows:

Chips: A traditional option and easy to see why. They are full of awesome and taste magical with yolk. Less impressive with just egg.
Roasties: Pretty damn impressive and tasty but much less so once the yolk had been consumed.
Croquettes: Utterly loathesome with yolk. A complete disaster as they tasted all weird, like a tramp's sock.
Waffles: Much like chips but with the added, frankly genius, feature that you can put the egg on top of it.

So, clearly the winner is the humble potato waffle, showing it's versatility in this test.

This study also contributes to the ongoing study of just how fucking bored someone can get while being signed off on the pat.

love and light,

waffles FTW

I'm guite fond of putting a veggie (yes I'm a dirty veggie folks) burger between two crispy waffles, the skill there is not letting the sauce get over your fingers which is the real reason we seem to go through so much kitchen roll in this house, honest.

This also works with fish fingers.
Ketchup, needs tons of ketchup.

Croquettes are awful.
Waffles, on the other hand, are divine.

potato croquettes
around here the semi-edible ones are called tater tots, the lousy ones are called tater turds

It was the large amounts of salt that gave it away.
Live salt, die young. It's the Glasgow way.

Waffly versatile.
Next time, try some decent crispy hash browns. I always go for the hash brown option (as an extra, obviously, not instead of the toast/chips/fried bread) when available and it works a treat.

FWIW my abiding memory of croquettes is of them being utterly vile with or without egg. Like eating hot, crunchy cotton wool.

simplest way to make an awesome meal into super awesome is to use eggs that are fresh
find some one who keeps chickens in there garden and get some i pay £1 round here for 6 and for all you foreners thats real money not some pissy euro that cant even show its elf in public with out extra support and as for the dollar? any way back to super awesome meal fresh eggs is the way of enlightenment and the delicious golden runny yolk tastes like it wants to come in your mouth and make your taste buds orgasm in delight ......
i have to good and squeeze and egg from a chicken now that i have talked my self in to one

Popping out to the chickens first thing and collecting breakfast makes any morning better.

Well, next time I'll put the chicken in the fucking freezer. Okay?

If I'd had any in the freezer I would have used them.
And they would have been rank.

Home made hash browns are tremendous with a runny egg. Grate a potato or two with the cheese grater onto kitchen paper. Ring the starch out over the sink and make sure you don't leave any paper bits with the dried out potatoes. Season with salt and pepper, then fry with butter until crispy and golden brown. Lob an egg on top and you will soon be in flavour country

and now I see that this was an oven and freezer based experiment...shitballs

Take some left over boiled potatoes
cut them up, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and fry them in left over bacon grease. Cue to last week's QTW, they cost 1/4 of the things you illustrated.

On a slightly different note

A 'KFC' style chicken fillet burger with a fried egg on top is pure fucking class. Try it.
