So last time we talked about reading Dex with my daughter and how it inspired her and her desire to “creation” something (she’s seven). Now keep in mind her last creation involved flour, vanilla, Italian seasoning and green food coloring. So this time around we wanted to give her a little more supervision rather than just letting her go to town unsupervised. We were in the middle of trying to plan dinner and discussed making breakfast for dinner. So today we are going to make my daughter’s patent pending “Breakfast Hashbrown Casserole Bowl Dinner for Breakfast in a Bowl.”

Now normally I’m one for making every single thing from scratch. I grow my own potatoes, make my own sausage from spices I have grown myself, gather my own eggs, press olives for my own olive oil, churn my own butter from cream I milked from a cow, etc etc.

So back in reality however, this being a weeknight and not having 17 hours to concoct everything from scratch, we took a shortcut or two.

Step one was heating up some oil in the center section of our Master Pan on medium high heat. Once the oil was heated, we threw in our hashbrown potatoes to get those cooking. Then in the side section we started our ground sausage browning. The nice thing about the Master Pan is that it lets you cook everything in one pan. My daughter loves this pan, almost as much as I do.

Once the hashbrowns and sausage are browned and almost ready we cracked a couple eggs in the other side to get them over easy. So far this all probably sounds rather common to you. Well this is where my daughter switched thing up and got all radical. It all went into the same bowl. First a scoop of potatoes in the bottom, then some sausage, then some shredded cheddar cheese, then top it off with one of the eggs. And this was my daughter’s master creation. The best part of all, it was actually edible!!

Do you have a budding creationer at home? If you do you should check out Dex today. Then leave a comment letting us know what their favorite thing to “creation” is. We’d love to hear their ideas so maybe our little one can cook them up as well!

Happy Cooking!

I have never heard of Dex, thank you so much for sharing! My kids love helping me in the kitchen and are always asking to cook and bake me things. I will definitely have to get this for them. We also have the Master Pan, but I have yet to use it! I am going to get it out right now.
