Hey LilSis, great job on the breakfast potato cake. Way to represent BigSisLilSis on the Potato Ho Down! I’d take off the bacon, but there’s just one thing I would add to it, and that’s a big splash of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce! I am the Spicy Condiment Queen, so you had to know I’d like some spice-o-rama on my taters.
I’m still obsessing over Vivi’s Carnival Mustard – in fact I just bought my second jar since I first wrote about it – and I gobbled up that jar of Joe T Garcia’s Salsa Picante in record time, so I might as well disclose my obsessive love for Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Daddy loved it, I love it, and now we have Big T into it. I put this stuff on and in everything…hummus, deviled eggs, soup, broccoli, green beans, asparagus, blackeyed peas, sandwiches, tofu, edamame, guacamole, anything except eggs. I’m weird like that. I don’t like ketchup or salsa or anything spicy on my scrambled eggs. It’s just wrong. Scrambled eggs are supposed to be creamy and buttery, not fiery.
Anyway! I used to buy Tabasco sauce, but now it just seems hot with no depth of flavor. Frank’s is a little hot, but not nearly as lethal as Tabasco, and it has tons and tons of amazing flavor. Frank’s web site has some great spicy recipes that use it, so check them out for some inspiration, but all you really need to know is put it on everything! Including LilSis’ potato cake!
