Can Serving Two Types Of Potatoes Help My Overall Food Cost At Breakfast?

Q:

Can Serving Two Types Of Potatoes Help My Overall Food Cost At Breakfast?

A:

Excellent question. The answer is that anytime you take a relatively economical menu item, such as hash brown shred potatoes and add in another version that’s extremely popular with guests too you potentially have a double winner.

Check out this side dish at Pine State Biscuits in Portland. Filling, crispy potatoes served golden brown. A full order is $4, a ½ order is $2.

For the second breakfast potatoes selection, why not make it an entrée such as shown at 24 Diner in Austin: https://idahopotato.com/recipes/24-diners-24-hash
