I had an unexpected visit with all of my cousins this past weekend in Florida. While the circumstances weren’t the best, the family and food surely helped brighten the day. The first morning we woke up at my cousin’s house and made The Big Egg. Now, this isn’t something that’s hard to make. It takes minimal ingredients and the best part is that you probably have most of them lying around. You can also customize The Big Egg however you like, as there’s really no set way to make it.


Here’s how we made it.


8 Eggs

4 cups of shredded potatoes (squeezed and patted dry)



salt and pepper

Crab dip

Olive Oil

Hot Sauce

Cheddar Cheese



Heat a non-stick pan very hot with oil and spread the potatoes evenly on the bottom. Turn them a few times until they are browned throughout and crispy on the bottom. Scramble the eggs, garlic and pepper together. Pour over the crispy potatoes. Let sit and cook. Once cooked all the way through, sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Top with chives and more salt & pepper. Cut into triangles (like a pizza) and serve hot. Garnish with chives and crab dip (or whatever else you have). Since we were in Florida, we garnished with a Plantain chip, but anything you have to make the presentation look festive, go ahead and use.

Let me know in the comments section what variations you chose!
