IHOP’s New Hash Brown Stacks

For a very limited time IHOP is allowing you to enjoy one of my favorite past times, combining food. Ever since I was a child I’ve been mesmerized by the concept of mixing foods. And yes I was the kid in high school that would put anything from mashed potatoes to peanut butter crackers on a bologna hoagie then scarf it down. Some thought I did it for the attention but I really did it for the taste. I enjoy peanut butter and jelly in the same jar, the KFC Bacon Bowl, and any sandwich that comes decked out with French fries, onion rings, coleslaw, and an egg. So anytime I hear a restaurant is experimenting in the ancient art of food combo I’m there.

From now until February 19th IHOP is taking things you would normally place apart from each other on a plate and stacking them together. They call this tower of breakfast yum yums the Hash Brown Stacks and they include hash brown, and eggs with a variety of toppings. There are four different Stack options but the only one I really care about is the one with bacon so lets focus on that one. It starts with the egg/hash brown base then cheddar cheese and bacon is added(and if I was the chef it would also include some BBQ sauce and a dollop of sour cream. Just throwing that out there IHOP.)

And if the power of breakfast stacked is too powerful for your heart, don’t worry it comes with a side of fruit. But if you’re a real man the fruit can easily be replaced with two amazing pancakes swimming in a sea of butter and syrup. All for only $5.99. The other flavors are, Spinach and Mushroom, Ham and Swiss, and for all those trying to stick to a New Year’s resolution the Simple and Fit Spinach and Mushroom.

The only real bad thing I can find about it, it’s it god awful commercial with dancing baggage handlers.
