Weekdays for all working families are busy. Especially the mornings. Long ago are the days of home cooked breakfast before going to school/work. Moms/Dads don't have time for that. Haven't had time for generations for that. My parents didn't cook breakfast each morning, I don't cook breakfast so the kid can have a hardy start to his morning, and if the kid was old enough to be on his own (and yes, I am old enough for him to have been on his own by now), he would not have time to have a soul filling breakfast each morning either. It is the way things are. Today we eat yogurt and toast and call it a day. If you are lucky it is yogurt and an egg. Tonight, Boiled Potato and Egg tacos were developed because 1) there was no yogurt, 2) dinner that was made for tonight is melding its flavors and will be eaten tomorrow, and 3) there was just no time (or energy) for real tacos.
Normally potatoes for P&E tacos are cooked in bacon grease till they are nice and soft. Then they are drained on towels and repan fried in their soaked up grease until they are slightly crunchy. Eggs are added and bam, P&E tacos.
Boiled P&E tacos are slightly different. Inch sized pieces of potato were quickly boiled to desired softness in the microwave and then toweled dried. During this,a cast iron skillet was warmed and bacon grease was melted. Once melted, the towel dried potatoes were added for a quick fry and scrambled eggs finished up the dish. The whole thing took less than five minutes. Amazing.
Scaled for Likability: Good
If in a pinch on another busy weekday morning, Boiled Potato and Egg tacos would be made again. However, on the weekends, I would still take the time to gently fry the eggs in bacon grease and not boil them. Something about love and cooking and better tasting food. But for the weekdays, bam.
