How do you feel about brunch? I love it! I am known to be a picky eater. I pick at this and I pick at that. A spoon of scrambled eggs all golden yellow and cradling rich yummy cheese in every nook and cranny. A sweet for sure. It should have cinnamon somewhere either inside or sprinkled on top.
Potato. Yes some kind of potato dish.
Sounds good right?

I’m starting off #BrunchWeek with a potato dish that’s cheesy and tummy pleasy.

Cheesy Hash Browns

These tasty patties turn shredded russet potatoes (I used Idaho® potatoes), Vidalia onions and creamy Cabot Cheese into a brunch time favorite.

Add some cheesy scrambled eggs, fresh berries and a beverage for a winning brunch idea! I used Cabot Tomato Basil Cheddar in my scrambled eggs. So creamy and delicious!

Prize #4 Vidalia Onion Committee is giving one winner a Martha Stewart Knife Set, cast iron fry pan, cutting board, and fresh Vidalia Onions
About Vidalia Onions: Vidalia onions are unique to a very small region. In fact, they only grow within 20 counties in Georgia (which is also why they are the official state vegetable of Georgia)!
Vidalia onions were discovered back in 1930’s, and just like back then, they are still planted, transplanted and harvested entirely all by hand! Vidalia onions are grown during the winter months, and are only available in stores between April and September,  making them a true seasonal specialty. In order to grow great tasting Vidalias, and to give them their characteristic sweetness, they must be grown in a sandy soil mixture that is low in sulfur (sulfur in soil is what gives onions their hotness). Because of  this sweet flavor, Vidalia onions are incredibly versatile and can be used in any sort of dish; grilling, baking, appetizers, sandwiches, casseroles, and yes, even sweet desserts. Each year, approximately 5-million 40-pound boxes are shipped out around the  entire country – now that’s a lot of onions!
