Lose the whipped cream and nuts too

My Breakfast Potato

This will blow your mind - 
My Breakfast Potato - mmmm
Culinary skills!

Memories of you
Is like microwaving food -
Jam-packed with sweet carbs...

Threw butter in pan...
It sizzles...in yellow bliss!
Future food doused too 

Baked some potatoes
I am a creative cook 
Geek from head to toe 

Sprinkled it with eggs 
Lotsah cheese and lotsah spice
Then, topped with sour cream

I did the cookin'
I broke both legs, making it -
Father in trainin' 

Washed pans, stove-ready
Made eggs to perfection - RAD
A nat'ral cook - mmmm!

Breathe in and breathe out
Get ready for bizarre plates -
Spread butter on toast! 

It's time to dine fine
Expect the unexpected -
Clean slate on platter 

I'm scorching in flame
I'm a burnt potato...true...
Turning to ash...lame...

Is required to make delish! (A delicious dish)
This hobby thrills...all... (Meaning we like cooking or we like tasting food)
