I realized just the other day that I’ve been gluten free for almost a decade (since my sophomore year in college)! Thankfully we’ve come a long way in terms of gluten free breads and pastas and I don’t find myself missing much at all. The one thing that does still find itself at the top of the list for me is an everything bagel with chive cream cheese. The first time I had one at Sadelle’s in NYC was seriously a spiritual, nostalgic experience (I had bagels every weekend growing up)!
Now while I’m not trying to recreate a bagel at home (yet), for this recipe I combined my love of brunch, eggs, crispy potatoes, chive cream cheese, and everything bagels into one, easy sheetpan dish. The base is crispy smashed potatoes, which you can make a day in advance and warm up in the oven. Top them with the works (avocado would also be great here) and you have something along the lines of brunch nachos. Whatever you want to call it, I guarantee it will delicious!
I’m planning to make a huge sheetpan of these ‘nachos’ or smash for New Year’s day brunch. Easy, satisfying, gorgeous and sure to mop up any remnants of the night before. Your guests will thank you!
