We all know fall is the best baking season, but did you know fall has the best vegetables too?
Brussell Sprouts, Butternut Squash, Mushrooms Galore! And what better way to enjoy fresh vegetables than with a breakfast hash cooked in a good ol cast iron skillet?
Ok, Ok, I haven’t posted in over two weeks and I’m so sorry! My final semester at school has been crazy but for the most part it is all good stuff. I had my best friend from home and her boyfriend come visit, I’m working on lots of cool web development projects, and I’ve had midterms which are not so cool. But kinda cool because they will be my LAST MIDTERMS EVERRRRRRRRR.
But I have been cooking and experimenting in the meantime. One of my biggest fall-cooking fascinations right now is using nutmeg in savory dishes. I’m sure some people are like well yeah….but to me it’s this whole cool new thing. My first exposure to it was making this Cider Braised Chicken by How Sweet Eats. First of all make that dish for dinner sometime because it is unreasonably good. Second, nutmeg + paprika with beautiful fall squashes and mushrooms is an absolute match made in heaven.
This hash is basically the bounty of fall harvest in a skillet. And you should eat it. Also, look out for all my upcoming various fall food experiments. Cooking with pumpkin is hard, especially if you are me and just not that jazzed about pumpkin, so you make a pumpkin soup so spicy it makes your eyes water.
