Taste- 8.75 –Get a load of all those flavors! This will be sure to wake you up in the morning! Feel free to add a little hot sauce if you want more of a kick.

Mouth feel/consistency- 8.5 –There’s a lot going on here. The texture of this dish can be more crunch, or more soft, depending on how well you liked your vegetables cooked. Here, we kept a little bite to our vegetables. Be sure to add the quicker cooking veggies closer towards the end!.

Smell- 10 –All the wonderful aromas have been mixed together nicely in this dish! Not only do vegetable like the pepper give off a strong aroma, but once the heat is going, those aromatics like rosemary and thyme have no trouble taunting your sense of smell.

Visual appeal- 6 –Like I said before, there’s a lot going on here! The potato seems to muddle the color a bit, and once an egg has been combined into your dish, you get a bowl full of somethings dark, with a few bright and odd colors. We feel that the smell and taste make up for what this dish is lacking in visual appeal!

Creativity- 7.75 –In our opinion, it’s pretty hard to find someone who hasn’t had potatoes for breakfast before. We found this meal to be very similar to fried rice: a culmination of leftover ingredients combined to make something more filling. In this case, we essentially exchanged rice for potatoes. There are many different types of potato hashes, this is just our own variation of the idea!
