Eggs, Potatoes and Hot Sauce

Have you ever used the McCormick garlic and pepper seasoning grinder. I love garlic so i really like this one. Add to it that there's also fresh cracked salt and pepper in there and you've got a winning trio. If you eat eggs you've got to try it in scrambled eggs. Don't add any other salt or pepper. Just a few grinds of this stuff.

Obviously this isn't vegan, but it's certainly vegetarian if you're okay with egg.

I paired my garlic pepper scrambled eggs with some fresh pancakes and maple syrup. It was really good. I love getting the syrup on my eggs. The combo of the pepper, garlic, maple syrup and some margarine was totally awesome. The pancake were pretty good too.

It's funny cuz so many people love garlic so much, but they seldom think to add it to their eggs and I don't know why. Eggs take well to so many additions. Garlic being no exception. Sage in eggs is also really nice if you have it.

Or for something more filling without the pancakes try sauted potatoes in your eggs. No, I'm not joking. It's delish.

It's much easier if you have the potatoes already prepared sitting in the fridge, but you can do it either way. I already have a recipe for quick diced miniature sauted potatoes you can use. Then you just add a few shots of them to your cooking eggs. And don't forget to grind on some garlic pepper seasoning too.

Try some spicy hot sauce as your condiment. It's great!
