I’m not even sure what inspired me to create this dish. I know I was hungry as hell and I needed to put this one potato I had to use. I also had two eggs left, salsa, and some parmesan. I was on the phone with a friend when the whole thing came together.
While cooking this dish, I had some music playing in the background. It was Anthony Hamilton to be exact because that’s the music that speaks to the fact that I’m forever in love with myself and my imaginary girlfriend. I remember when it was time for me to plate this dish. Chile, I totally thought I screwed it up because out of nowhere, my entire mind went BLANK. Periodt.
I panicked while on the phone with my friend. In the most calm, softest voice she asked, “What would you do if you were on “Chopped”?”
My reply was: “Keep going.”
