Here’s a hearty breakfast prep that will appeal to vegetarian customers as well as the bacon-and-egg set.

Ingredients

1 lb. 4 oz. red potatoes, diced to 1/2-in.
2 oz. red onion, chopped
2 1/2 oz. mushrooms, sliced
3 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
2 oz. olive oil
1 tbsp. butter
2 tsp. rosemary, chopped
1 tsp. salt
1 avocado
3 oz. cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp. sour cream
Fresh salsa, for serving

Steps

  1. Place diced potatoes in heavy pot and cover with water. Parboil potatoes over high heat about 6 to 7 min. (Potatoes should still be tender-crisp).
  2. Meanwhile, peel and pit avocado and cut in half. Dice half the avocado and slice the other half.
  3. Heat olive oil and butter over high heat in large skillet. Add potatoes, rosemary and salt. When potatoes start to brown, add onions. Cook for 3 min. Add mushrooms, continuing to cook on high until onions and mushrooms are done.
  4. Turn heat to low and stir in diced avocado. Add shredded cheese and let melt.
  5. To serve, divide potato mixture between two plates. Place avocado slices on top of each; top with cherry tomato halves. Garnish with 1 tbsp. sour cream per plate. Serve with salsa.

One of my favorite cartoons shows a commander whose soldiers are in the midst of fighting a war with bows and arrows. Without turning around, he tells a man who has come up behind him, “I’m sorry, I’m too busy to talk to you.” The man was a rifle salesman.

In today’s time-pressed world, we are all too busy. So, it can be difficult to find time to reach out to others for ideas, solutions and best practices. But as that cartoon illustrates, it’s critical to being successful. The sharing of knowledge is a pillar of FoodService Director . Through our magazine and events, we have been...

chefs

We started inviting chefs and FSDs from other districts to come prepare lunch. Through featuring different chefs and chef-inspired meals, I’ve found the students have been looking forward to coming into the cafeteria. They are willing to try new things with crazy names, and to ask for their favorite outside items turned healthy.
