Three Layered Concoction with Mashed Potatoes, Shrimp Salad, and Egg
Saturday evening feeling lazy as usual, I was sitting in front of the laptop while sipping cold coffee. On a nasty rainy day like today, I can stare at the monitor for hours and hours without even knowing. But today I decided to spend my day a little more productively and finally dragged myself into the kitchen. Now that I have work and school, I don't really feel like doing anything when I'm home. My apartment isn't as clean as it used to be and junk/fast food has become my daily meal. I started to wonder what's going to happen when I have kids in the future.
Beavercat's Random Concoction
I don't know how I came up with this idea of making this three layered oven-baked dish. I was stumbling online and randomly thought of this. The funny thing is, it's not only the food I randomly get creative with. All my school projects have been made like that (i.e. I saw a picture of dandelion and thought of creating dandelion seeds with men). I get spaced out pretty often too. I haven't been able to make a conclusion but I think I have either ADD or am naturally creative. I'm hoping the latter. Despite the randomness of the dish, it tasted pretty damn good.
• Aluminum foil cup (You can make this at home. It took me less than 30 secs for each.)
• American cheese
• Mayo & lemon juice
1. Boil potatoes in water for about 20 to 30 minutes until it gets fully cooked.
2. While boiling the potatoes, boil shrimp in water for about 5 minutes until it turns pink.
3. Fry bacon and let it cool.
4. Cut bacon and mix with shrimp.
5. Marinate them with mayo, parsley, and a little bit of lemon juice. If you think it tastes bland, you can add salt (I did).
6. When potatoes are done, mash it with spoon and add diced American cheese.
7. Preheat the oven at 450 degrees
8. Put the mashed potato in the aluminum foil cup as a first layer.
9. For the second layer, add the marinated shrimp & bacon.
10. For the third layer, add one egg on top. Be careful not to destroy the yolk for presentation.
11. Put it in the oven and wait until the egg gets fully cooked. It took me about 15 minutes.
