This Leftover Mashed Potato Breakfast Toast may just be the easiest way to use up leftover mashed potatoes! Avocado, bacon, mashed potatoes and a fried egg—what could be better?!
Happy Black Friday! Err….day after Thanksgiving? Do you partake in Black Friday festivities? I know a lot of people including my brother do and have been for years, but I think it’s a known fact that you can get the same deals a few days before Black Friday. I know it’s a “thing”, but I’m not about the commotion. No, I’d rather do all my shopping at 10 am on a random Wednesday if I can. Beat the weekend crowds, beat the lunch crowds… yes, that’s my ideal shopping time. With that said, I’ve done ZERO Christmas shopping so far. NONE. This same thing happened last year so I’m not stressing out about it, but I do want to get started because once I do, a huge weight is lifted off my shoulders.
I know you know the feeling.
How was your Thanksgiving? Did you eat everything in sight?
Would you believe me if I told you I went through a two year period (I think it was two years…maybe it was just one) where I didn’t like mashed potatoes? WTF, I know. I didn’t like the texture of them, which is hilaaaaaarious because if you make your own mashed potatoes, you can choose the creaminess of them. Also, what’s not to like?!! Potatoes, butter, milk, maybe a little garlic? Basically all the best foods. I’m glad my opinion has changed because now I la-la-love them and find myself making them throughout the year (!!!). Whoa. Yes, you can eat mashed potatoes on days other than Thanksgiving. Crazy.
One of the best parts about Thanksgiving is the leftovers! Inevitably there will always be some leftovers that moms send home with people, sometimes even begging. “PLEASE take these mashed potatoes off of my hands.”
Well, if you insist!
This leftover mashed potato breakfast toast is a super easy way to use up your mashed potatoes, and an excellent excuse to eat them for breakfast!! I’m all about eating “dinner” foods for breakfast and breakfast foods for dinner. Pizza for breakfast? Yes. Mashed potatoes for breakfast? Why the heck not?! This toast combines avocado, bacon and garlic mashed potatoes into one giant piece of toast, and it’s basically what leftover dreams are made of. If you’re feeling like you need even more goodness, add a fried egg on top!
DO IT. Seriously.
