I don’t think I need to convince you that in the genre of breakfast, potatoes need to be extra crispy. Eggs are soft and require contrast if you’re going to properly wake your taste buds up early in the morning. It’s a jolt to the senses that immediately invigorates you, a reminder that the day ahead is yours to win.
To order a breakfast potato from a restaurant is a blind act of faith. You know what a hash brown should taste like, and if the restaurant manages to meet or exceed your expectations, then you’re happy. The risk is part of the reward—there are few things more satisfying than when something exceeds your low expectations. Even better? Walking into a fast food restaurant and basking in the pleasure of knowing exactly what you’re going to get.
No trend is safe from millennials. The second something hits social media, you can be sure that a blogger or YouTube person will make it even weirder. Soon after, Pinterest will explode with a million different versions. The only time I pay attention to these is when they involve food, to be honest. The reign of avocado toast has changed my life more than unicorn highlighters ever will. And I know I can’t be the only one.

But even with all these options, it can be tough to find the right place to get your morning feast on.
