Don't worry, this isn't Ke$ha here telling you to throw back bacon-flavored Smirnoff before you brush your teeth with a bottle of jack. I'm here with just one word: potatoes. These potato shooters pack all your favorite breakfast foods in one place, with none of the ingredients you dread most in the morning — actual alcohol.

You name the best part of a weekend brunch, and this recipe has it (sans mimosa): warm fluffy hash browns, steaming eggs, crispy bacon and not just one, but multiple perfect bites. If those toppers don't float your boat, well guess what, the skies the limit. Cook up your favorite breakfast foods and fill up your cup (potato).
