Ingredients

  • 30 ounces hash browns
  • 6 pieces of bacon
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup of cheese

Instructions

  1. Cook bacon in frying pan until crisp on medium heat. Set aside and crumble once cooled. Leave the bacon grease in the pan and cook hash browns according to package. Once they are lightly browned crack the eggs on top of the hash browns. After a couple of minutes cut the dish into 4 pieces and flip over (it’s kind of like making an omelet). Then top with shredded cheese, seasonings and bacon. Serve once cheese is melted. mmm

  1. Yumm that looks and sounds so good! I love all those notsogoodforyou breakfast foods. Unfortunately I eat boring healthy breakfast (egg whites & cooked spinach, oatmeal, protein shake, kashi cereal, or just a bowl of fruit). I do however condone eating this kind of stuff every once in awhile ;) I’m definitely going to try this come November when I can eat it :)

  2. Great pic, Jamie! Davis and Gavin would go nuts over it! I’ll have to try making it, although I am THE WORST egg cooker ever. seriously. {probably doesn’t help that i hate the smell of them!} We are boring breakfast eaters too, except for Fridays. On most Fridays, we make pancakes with homemade syrup. :)
    happy crafting,
    Linda

  3. That sounds delicious. I’m pinning it to make this weekend.

  4. Oh yummy! I eat oaties every morning! Don’t think this is going to fit my WW program this week…but maybe for a special treat.

  5. This sounds so good!
    Great to make for a special breakfast!

  6. Thank you this great saying…I so get caught up in perfection, and then I don’t try at all….this is going in my craft room for sure! :):) Have a great Wednesday! Sandy

  7. I made this for dinner tonight. My husband and I both loved it! Thanks for the new breakfast dinner.

  8. This looks delish! Gonna have to try it!

  9. Am visiting from TT&J…this looks like something we would all enjoy. Thanks!

  10. A couple quick questions, how many does this feed and do you scramble the eggs before adding them?

  11. I made this dish yesterday morning and it was a huge hit for me and my husband.  I used smoked gouda cheese as well. I will definitely be making this more often.

  12. My husband would LOVE this! I’ll have to make it this weekend for him!

  13. This is a great weekend breakfast idea! Definitely not for frequent meals! Special occasion breakfast only. Our typical weekday breakfast-cereal, toast, fruit and milk, juice, tea, coffee or water. If there are leftover pancakes or waffles from the weekend we have those. 

  14. This recipe sounds and looks dlish!!! What kind of cheese do you use and what size bag of frozen hash browns?
