Vegetarian Sunday dinner – portabello mushroom burger with hash brown and zucchini

This sunday, I decided to stay with vegetarian food again, I am thinking to do a veggie burger. Instead of veggie patties, I am thinking to go for portabello mushroom. For the side dish, instead of salad, I am thinking to have some hash brown. 

For the burger, I am not able to find mini burger bread, so I am going to use the small panini. First of all, I am getting the hash brown ready because it takes more time to cook that. Grate the potatoes and some onion, get rid of the excess water and mix them in a large bowl. Season them with a touch of salt and pepper, fry them later on in a pan with oil and some butter, add some grated cheese few minutes before they are done. 

For the burger, fry some onion until they are cameralised, set them aside for later use. Now fry the sliced zucchini with olive oil on a grill pan, and season them with a touch of salt. Then, fry the portabello mushroom and place the cheddar cheese on top of each mushroom until they start to melt. Grill the panini with some butter on the grill pan. When all are ready, place the bottom of the panini, then place all the ingredients carefully one by one on top of each other. The zucchini, sliced tomato, some mustard, ketchup or mayonnaise, onion, the portabello mushroom with the cheddar cheese, then finish up with the top of the panini. Serve the burger with the hash brown and the rest of the pan fried zucchini. 

Eggs Baked in Hash Brown with Bacon

I love hash brown, and love to have it as part of the breakfast. Well, actually I found the one from McDonald’s is not bad, I can easily eat 2 of them. But, of course it’s better to make your own one.

So, today I am making this, can combined hash brown, eggs and bacons in one go, and it’s super easy to cook. First of all, you need to grate the potatoes after peeling them, and add some grated onion as well. Then you mixed them together, you have to watch out the excess water and have to get rid of them.

Then, you have to use a pan that could be used in an oven eventually. Heat the pan and then put some butter and let it melt, fry the mixture of potatoes and onion. Let it sit there and fry until golden brown on one side, season it with a bit of salt and pepper, I also like to add some grounded paprika. You can add slides of butter from the edge if you feel more butter is needed. Then, repeat the same thing for the other side. When the hash brown is half done, you don’t need that fully done, because we will put it in the oven later on, and it will be keep cooking. Crack 4 eggs on top of the hash brown, season the egg with a bit of salt and pepper. Then, place the pan into the oven and grill it for roughly 10-15 minutes under 180C to 200C.  Meanwhile, heat up another pan with butter or oil, then fry the bacons  and get them ready.

When the hash brown and eggs are done, take it out from the oven, and place the bacons on top of the dish. I like to serve it with some chopped basil and spring onion, to make it tastes even better. I have to say, the dish I cooked should be with more hash brown. Now you cannot really see the hash brown underneath in the picture ;P
