Punk Rock Foodie: Montrose Hash Browns


LOS ANGELES, June 13, 2014 — Montrose Hash Browns are not only very easy to make, but they are also pretty inexpensive. The per person cost of this meal is about $2, give or take, this is not math class. Montrose Hash Browns are a great way to start your day, especially when paired with a Pabst Blue Ribbon.


1 Shredded red potato, unpeeled

2 Strips of cooked bacon (Cook it yourself either in a pan or in the oven, or buy it pre-cooked, it’s not a big deal. It’s bacon. Bacon is always good, never bad.)

2 Eggs

1 Corner of a green pepper

1 Slice of white onion

1 Clove of garlic

1 Half of an avocado

Himalayan pink salt


Olive Oil

Shred an unpeeled red potato with a cheese grater. Chop the bacon, green pepper, onion and garlic. Add to a bowl with the shredded potato. Add some salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Put a bit of olive oil in a heated frying pan. Add potato mixture to the frying pan over medium-ish heat and flatten out so it is about a half inch thick.

When the first gets brown, flip it over with either a spatula or a swift flick of the wrist. Crack two eggs into the pan with the potatoes. Cover with a lid. Check the potatoes and keep them moving if need be to avoid burning.

Once the eggs are to your personal liking, use a spatula to flip them into your potatoes. Mix together and then dump it all onto a plate. WIth sunny side up eggs, mix on the plate, not in the pan.

Add slices of avocado and then top it off with Tapatío to taste. Grab a fork or spoon or hand and dig in.

Pairs with: Pabst Blue Ribbon or other similarly priced beer

Listened to: Emmer Effer, the People’s Demo AND the Live in Long Beach EP because they are the only punk band to originate in Montrose, California…ever…I think…I could be wrong.
