Breakfast for Dinner: BLT Fried Egg and Cheese Sandwich with Oven Fries

BLT Fried Egg and Cheese Sandwich

Yes, it was delicious.  How can you go wrong with fried eggs, bacon and cheese?  And my personal favorite, tomatoes?  This is so fast to make. On the side I served another really easy side-dish solution:  Alexia Rosemary and Olive Oil Oven Fries.  I love Alexia’s frozen potatoes, including sweet potato fries – they come out really well every time.  I just toss them with some olive oil, put them in a pyrex baking dish (because my cookie sheets all tend to bend and warp at 450 degrees) and turn them once halfway through cooking.  Sadly, of course, you have to use more olive oil to make them resemble fries, but they are still pretty good if you keep it healthy by just using a minimal amount of oil.

I used Take and Bake Italian Peasant Bread (Cub and SuperTarget both sell this) for the sandwiches, just taken from the package and toasted.  I really like this bread because you can put the packaged loaf in the refrigerator for a day or two, unwrap it, bake it, and it’s like fresh.  It doesn’t take a trip to the store the same day to have pretty good bread.

Zucchini with Green Chile and Cheese and Grilled Potato and Shallot Packages with BBQ Chicken

This zucchini recipe is a favorite side with our family.  I was so happy to find that my mom’s cousin Andrea put it into the wonderful cookbook full of recipes that our family gave us as a wedding gift.  I reduced the quantity of the recipe to serve 2-4.

2 large zucchinis, sliced
½ cup chopped roasted green chile (around three chiles)
½ cup chopped onion
garlic powder or salt
salt and pepper
1/8 loaf velveeta cheese

Slice and boil squash.  When water boils, add onions.  Continue to boil until zucchini is soft enough to mash with a fork.  Drain water, mash squash, drain again.  Add cheese and chile.  (I didn’t have velveeta so I used Colby Jack and American). Stir over low heat while cheese melts.  Season to taste.  This is a great side dish for when you barbeque chicken or burgers!

Grilled Potato and Shallot Packages

I adapted this from the Grilled Potato and Onion Packages recipe from Epicurious.  The only changes I made were to use red potatoes instead of white and to use chopped shallots instead of red onions.  I made a couple extra servings to use in hash browns for breakfast tomorrow.  Both of these side dishes are great with barbequed chicken on the grill.
