These Hash Brown Waffle Egg in the Holes with Tomato Avocado Salsa are such a delectable flavor combination! Hash Brown waffles are the base of this delightful breakfast with a fried egg in the middle. They are topped with a simple tomato and avocado salsa for one of the best breakfasts I have ever had. This flavor medley is out of this world delicious! Aren’t the colors of this dish so gorgeous too!
I have been making egg in the holes for breakfast since I was a little kid. I really wanted to share this timeless recipe with a new spin on it. This mindset led me to a lot of failed experimentation! I spent 2 different days trying to figure out how to make the perfect hash brown waffle. Oh my did I have some epic failures! Note to self…hash browns need to have some added ingredients to prevent major stickage situations! You definitely can’t just add a little egg to your hash brown and expect it to make a waffle…LOL!
After several failures, I finally got my hash brown waffle to congeal after adding a little flour, milk and eggs. After that fiasco, I decided to make these babies into egg in the holes. It worked beautifully! I just couldn’t resist adding a beautiful touch of color with a simple tomato and avocado salsa. You can always just eat this lovely hash brown egg in the hole by itself…totally delicious!
Okay, so I have to admit to something here…I am in currently in process of doing a little cocktail recipe research (think vodka, lemons, strawberries and all things fabulous). Definitely some hardcore stuff going on here…took the burn off of a rather rough work week! Working in the social services field can be such an emotional roller coaster sometimes. Yay to the weekend!
