Operator Notes:
The basic recipe is used for ‘breakfast for lunch’ as a side, and in the breakfast burrito. We also use the recipe for our roasted potatoes as a side dish at lunch, but we cut them in to different sizes and shapes to change things up from time to time. We actually purchased a ‘French Fry’ blade for our chopper, and we will be experimenting with that this coming spring menu cycle!
