Directions

For the cheesy hash browns: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Heat the butter and canola oil in a cast iron pan over high heat until the butter begins to sizzle. Add the onion and cook until soft and slightly caramelized.

While the onions are caramelizing, put the potatoes in a large pot of cold, salted water, bring to a boil and cook until nearly tender, but a knife inserted into the centers still meets a little resistance, 10 to 12 minutes, or cooked through. Drain well and smash with the back of a wooden spoon.

Add the potatoes to the onions packing it evenly with the back of a metal spatula to form a cake. Season with salt and pepper and cook until the underside is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Invert a plate or baking sheet without sides over the pan and carefully invert the potato cake onto it. Carefully slide the potato cake back into the skillet and cook until the bottom is just set and pale golden brown, about 4 minutes. Spread the cheese on top, cover the pan with a lid and let melt. Transfer the potato cake to a cutting board cheese-side up and cut into wedges. Garnish with chopped fresh chives.

For the roasted tomatoes with bread crumbs: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Put the tomato halves in a lightly buttered baking dish, cut-side up, drizzle with olive oil , honey, and sprinkle with panko bread crumbs and paprika. Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper and roast for 20 minutes. Remove the tomatoes from the oven and sprinkle with parsley. Drizzle with olive oil.

For the sauteed mushrooms: Heat the canola oil into a saute pan and saute the mushrooms until soft. Add the fresh thyme leaves and season with salt and pepper.

For serving: Arrange on a platter the fried eggs, cooked bacon, cooked sausage, cheesy hash browns, roasted tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, toasted brown soda bread and butter.

    I just made the hash browns and they did not turn out well. I cook a fair amount and suspected the onions would burn since the heat had to be high enough to make the hash browns crispy on the outside, and even though I followed the recipe to the letter, thats what happened. Boiling a medium potato for 12 minutes wasn't nearly long enough, either. Ended up basically cooking it halfway, seeing it was not going to turn out well, and then just sauted the potatoes. Will stick with my own recipe next time.

    Amazing, we saw Bobby this AM on cooking channel while sipping our coffee and said "Lets do this!" We had to substitute the lamb sausage etc for beer brats, and irish cheddar and butter (sadly) for regular cheddar, didnt have the irish soda bread but we did the rest and plated it like Bobby did and it was amazing. No joke the clouds parted the grey beach sky and the sun began to come out while we were eating. A fun experience to cook and then sit down and enjoy. Thanks Bobby Flay :)
