snowstorm breakfast: red potatoes with melted cheese, rosemary, and olive oil












Yes, it's snowing again.  It's supposed to snow all day, or turn to ice pellets, or perhaps sleet and heavy snow, bringing down the power lines.  

I'm fortifying myself with this winter breakfast - a warm and comforting plate of sliced baby potatoes, lots of olive oil, melted cheese, and rosemary.  I use the microwave (while I still have power), but I suppose you could do it in a toaster oven - I'm too impatient to wait.  I used the end of a block of mozzarella and some Monterey Jack, though if I had my choice I would probably use gruyere and mozzarella.

Drizzle olive oil on a heatproof platter or plate.
Add a few thin slices of cheese and microwave very briefly.
Layer with cooked, sliced baby potatoes.
Add more thin slices of cheese and drizzle with more olive oil.
Sprinkle with rosemary leaves, salt, and freshly ground pepper and microwave until melted and bubbling.  If you have a few cherry tomatoes, those are also wonderful but halve them or they will explode.

Just think - only two more days til March!  Stay warm and dry, wherever you are.

Looks good enough to lick the plate and not leave a morsel!

azita - you must have been watching me this morning! So good, I'm thinking, wait - isn't it lunchtime? And making it again:)
Thanks for swinging by!

the only thing that would improve that brekkie for me would be a poached egg swimming in that cheesy puddle!

we've got power and a layer of wet slushy stuff in the driveway ... hope you fared well through the bluster!

...be still my beating heart, and hungry stomach, and love the thought of adding tomatoes, our winter storage ones would be perfect for this!

Susan - now there's something I never thought of! Thanks for the idea - must try, for sure. Oh, the weather. I heard this morning it's supposed to snow for the next four days *whimper*.

Dear Diary - I bet that would be delicious! I keep meaning to go back and read about those winter tomatoes, although still have no place to garden - yet. Working on that.
