And….just like that, Christmas is over :(. So depressing. As a kid after Christmas I would always try to ease my depression about it by looking forward to New Year’s. But let’s face it- it is so not as good.
Don’t worry, I know everyone has been on the edge of their seats waiting to see all the food pictures I have been taking with my new camera. I’ve found the camera works way better when I use it for close up shots, which is why I wanted it. Still looking for tips though so send some my way if you have any!
I wanted to kick off the food shots with an amazing recipe that was a hit for Christmas brunch.
We visited a great local meat store to get some bacon and chorizo for this recipe. It’s called Side Hill Farmer’s market (we got our steaks there on Fourth of July when it first opened). OMG….is all I have to say about the bacon. And the chorizo (spicy mexican sausage) made this hash:
Spicy Chorizo Hash
9 eggs, whisked
1 lb spicy chorizo (or breakfast sausage)
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 medium sweet potato, shredded with food processor
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp ghee or cooking fat
salt and pepper to taste
1. Heat the ghee in a large sauté pan over medium heat.
2. Add the chorizo, and cook until no longer pink, breaking apart with spoon.
3. Put the chorizo in a dish to the side and reserve cooking fat. Add more ghee if necessary.
4. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant.
5. Add peppers and onions and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add sweet potato and cook for another 3-4 minutes until softened. Put to the side.
6. Add whisked eggs and cook in the pan while mixing to get scrambled eggs.
7. Add back in the chorizo and veggies and cook 1-2 more minutes until everything is mixed together.
Eat with some avocado and salsa on top! Yum!
Christmas Brunch! Some civilized caveman banana bread with chocolate chips to go with it!
