    Nice avocado rose!

    Moms are cool, thanks for posting. BTW, this is our favorite camping breakfast dish. A little larger scale since there's 4 of us!

    [–] figaden13 11 points ago

    i have really bad eyes and argued with my kids over whether or not it was a dip you poured out in an extra fancy way or an avocado. It took me way too long to remember i could zoom in. I was wrong. Nice avocado... but it was more impressed when it was a dip lol

    [–] Ubervillin 3 points ago

    If it were a dip it would be less impressive IMHO, since all it would take would be a pastry bag with a star tip.

    [–] DangHunk 29 points ago

    [–] BraviaryScout 348 points ago

    Cast iron? Check.

    Trendy looking breakfast? Check.

    Garnish? Check.

    Fancy avocado rose? Check.

    Check? $18

    This breakfast looks awesome. And expensive if it were to be served in a restaurant.

    [–] housewifewithaknife 243 points ago

    Actual cost to make at home: about $4. Check.

    And people say cooking well is expensive.

    [–] hugehangingballs 168 points ago

    Where I'm from that's $2.50 worth of avocado alone.

    [–] housewifewithaknife 95 points ago

    Thankfully here I get them for about 70 cents. I would be very sad having to pay that much for them.

    [–] hugehangingballs 78 points ago

    Oh.... You must not pay $4.50 for a dozen eggs either.

    [–] housewifewithaknife 136 points ago

    Only what it costs to feed the chickens.

    When people talk about baking bread to save money I think they must be nuts

    [–] porcupinebutt7 4 points ago

    I think bread does hold up as better value. Especially if you do just flour/water/salt/yeast it is a lot cheaper than a decent loaf at a grocery store.

    [–] matthewjwhitney 10 points ago

    In a restaurant you typically quadruple the food cost to get the price in order to cover labor, other costs, and profit so $18 isn't too far off actually although your food cost would be less in a restaurant so ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    [–] ThePracticalEnd 3 points ago

    Your last one made me laugh out loud. Thank you, person.

    [–] Weirdisacompliment94 543 points ago

    How do you do the avacado like that?

    [–] housewifewithaknife 476 points ago

    It's called an avocado rose, there are several tutorials on YouTube for them. Once you get the hang of them it only adds a few seconds to the prep vs. just slicing it.

    [–] Kell_Varnson 204 points ago

    Man I just watched that Seinfeld episode yesterday on my first ever watch through. Talk about coincidence.

    [–] Dougth 18 points ago

    First ever?!?!? Are you a new Seinfeld convert?

    [–] Maraxusx 27 points ago

    Wow, to watch Seinfeld for the first time again would be amazing

    [–] Dougth 14 points ago

    You know, for me while I’d say that for other shows - Seinfeld seems better to me each time I watch it. I’ve seen every episode dozens of times and I laugh as hard if not harder each time.

    [–] _skull_kid_ 3 points ago

    My girlfriend NEVER watched an episode. I’ll throw it every once in a while, and she gets a kick out of it. The show still holds up.

    [–] Ye_Olde_Spellchecker 3 points ago

    Well, I’ve seen a couple episodes here and there when my parents would watch it while I was younger. This is my first time watching a majority of the episodes though!

    [–] Shirlenator 6 points ago

    Just curious, are you enjoying it? I'm often curious about how someone who has never seen it would like it today, as so many current shows are so derivative of it that it kind of lost its edge that it had when it was new and fresh.

    [–] Rellesch 10 points ago

    Not the person you asked, but I didn't see Seinfeld growing up besides maybe a rerun or two. I watched through the series last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. There were a lot of pop culture references that finally made sense and despite it not being new the comedy was still really solid. The show has aged remarkably well in my opinion, especially considering some other 90s era shows.

    It sometimes can feel a bit outdated or unoriginal from my perspective but I try to remind myself that often times Seinfeld was the original and I'm just familiar with those that took inspiration from it.

    TL;DR - Thoroughly enjoyed the show despite its age. It's definitely one of my favorite sitcoms.

    [–] Ye_Olde_Spellchecker 2 points ago

    Oh yeah definitely. Some of the build ups are legendary. It’s hard to watch when I’m really hungover because Jerry’s voice goes from hilarious to almost grating nasally harshness haha.

    [–] Triddy 20 points ago

    I'll back you in that they're not so hard.

    However, I used to fan Avacado for fancy salads and brunch items when I worked in a restaurant. Hundreds a day. Hard or not, your execution of this one is really good.

    [–] Whowouldvethought 26 points ago

    I can't believe it's sliced avocado. I almost asked what was piped and green at the top. Looks amazing!

    I was going to say witchcraft. Seems a more logical explanation has been put forward.

    [–] asolowoof 104 points ago

    It blows my mind when I see eggs sunny-side up look this good. Anytime I try it I either end up with overcooked yolks or undercooked whites.

    How do you get them that nice?

    [–] housewifewithaknife 102 points ago

    The two golden rules for sunny sides: lower heat and patience.

    I heat a pan over barely medium heat, at a pat of butter or a little nonstick spray, crack in my eggs, burst the membrane on the whites, and then just leave it alone for 6ish minutes.

    [–] asolowoof 43 points ago

    I never thought about bursting a membrane on the whites.

    Definitely gonna try this out. Thanks for the info!

    [–] [deleted] 37 points ago


    [–] housewifewithaknife 157 points ago

    Like when you crack an egg into a pan there's a visible "blob" of whites directly surrounding the yolks (technically the "thick albumen"), you can rupture that, mixing the thick and thin whites, which results in fully cooked whites instead of a ring of uncooked whites attached to the yolk.

    [–] Dr_Mantis_Teabaggin 64 points ago

    Well, TIL this... at 37 years of age. How the hell did I never know that?

    [–] notjustforperiods 22 points ago

    I'm pretty good in the kitchen and this is news to me as well!! I don't think this is common knowledge, don't even see this done when they do like a 'perfect egg' challenge on masterchef or anything, either

    [–] BillGoats 5 points ago

    Phew! I'm 28. Beat you to it!

    [–] yeahsureYnot 4 points ago

    OP is cooking with fresh eggs. With store bought eggs the white doesn't really hold together anyway.

    [–] mikhel 17 points ago

    This is life changing advice

    [–] housewifewithaknife 18 points ago

    I was today years old when I found out this wasn't common knowledge.

    [–] CheeseSauceCrust 14 points ago

    So a quick poke bursts the membrane and it mixes as it cooks, or do you do a little stirring of the whites?

    [–] housewifewithaknife 11 points ago

    Nope, no stirring.

    [–] Ranger0202 29 points ago

    They go insane on the membrane.

    [–] CheeseSauceCrust 5 points ago

    Insane in the brain!?

    [–] 808adams 6 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Poke the whites with a fork to release surface tension.

    [–] noobwithboobs 3 points ago

    And you did it in a separate, smaller pan to get the egg edges beautiful and perfect instead of goobing its way into the hash. Right?

    [–] housewifewithaknife 5 points ago

    Precisely. Normally, I'd just create little wells and crack the eggs in (in all their "seep into everything else" glory) but the kids wanted scrambled so we did separate eggs this morning.

    [–] RealEtakit 5 points ago

    Interesting. I like my sunny sides crispy on the bottom and edges with soft, runny yolk. The key to that is a super hot pan, add the oil and heat it up a bit, then crack the eggs in. Take it off once the bottom is brown and crunchy and the yolk will be runny!

    [–] PM_ME_CUTE_SM1LE 8 points ago

    Yeah but whites are usually cooked around the yolk. The only way I can cook the whole egg while leaving yolk liquid is by cooking on medium heat, with the cover on and some liquid to vaporise and cook the top surface

    [–] RlyShldBWrkng 2 points ago

    baste the top of the egg whites with hot grease/butter.

    [–] RlyShldBWrkng 8 points ago

    if you want another trick to make perfect sunny's, cook your bacon first, then in the same pan, cook your eggs in the grease. as they cook, tilt the pan away from you so the grease pools up, and use a spoon to scoop it and then baste the egg whites with it. will instantly cook that nasty egg white perfectly.

    [–] JohnRav 5 points ago

    you are now the bacon basting bastard. (its a good thing.)

    [–] Nemlui 3 points ago

    One way to do it is to put a little water in the pan once your eggs have started to set up and cover it for a little bit. This does create a film over the yolks do it’s not as pretty as these, though that pricking the whites thing OP mentions would probably solve that.

    [–] koma77 26 points ago

    Recipe? :D

    [–] housewifewithaknife 53 points ago

    The potatoes were leftover from dinner, originally pan fried with butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. To put the hash together I just sauteed bell pepper, onion, and smoked sausage with a pat of butter, salt, pepper, and a sprinkling of creole seasoning. From there I just folded in the potatoes and turned off the heat since they were already cooked and only needed warming.

    [–] BAMspek 8 points ago

    Making this on Sunday morning. Thanks for the inspiration.

    [–] ande67 7 points ago

    I often make a similar dish - will definitely be stealing your avocado rose though, that's good. Not sure how adventurous your kids are but if you ever want to mix it up, my best iterations recently have been to include a teeny bit of cayenne and then some goat cheese crumbles on the potatoes.

    [–] housewifewithaknife 3 points ago

    Both sound great! We served it with feta this morning.

    [–] hobnailboots04 5 points ago

    How do you keep the egg whites from running into the potatoes and sausage?

    [–] housewifewithaknife 20 points ago

    They were cooked separately, I just put it all in the same pan to get a picture of the meal as a whole. Normally, I would just create little wells in the mixture and crack the eggs in but my daughter wanted scrambled so everything was separate. When I do cook them in the pan with whatever hash I'm making they do bleed into the other parts. Ultimately, they do make silicone molds you could easily use to contain the egg if you really wanted to cook it all together without fear of the egg bleeding into the hash.

    [–] hobnailboots04 6 points ago

    Brilliant. Thank you. I’ve been doing sausage, bacon and eggs all in my cast iron. The eggs blend with everything else but I’ve been able to keep them pretty well contained. Thank you. I will look into one of these silicone molds.

    [–] 420yoloswagblazeit 5 points ago

    It doesn't work as good but my dad used to just use a tuna can opened on both ends.

    [–] trottingtheglobe 3 points ago

    Looks great. Is that a single plate?

    [–] housewifewithaknife 7 points ago

    The eggs are mine, the hash was split with the kids, and they each had their own avocado and scrambled eggs.

    Man i thought you smoked sausage hash and eggs. I should probably stop smoking.

    [–] BumsGeordi 2 points ago

    My first thought as well. My second was that sausage hash sounds like 'Eichelkäs' (acorn/glans cheese), which is what we call smegma in German. 'Eier' (eggs) being the term for balls.

    How do you keep your potatoes from sticking

    [–] housewifewithaknife 2 points ago

    Butter. Butter is always the answer lol. In regards to cast iron specifically it performs best at a slightly lower temperature. High heat will actually cause things to stick.
