Cheesy Scrambled Egg and Potato Skillet

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

This makes a great weekend brunch or a light weekday dinner served with a side salad and crusty bread. You will need a large skillet for this, an electric frypan works well also. If possible use the large size hash browns for this, red potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes can be used in place of hash browns.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet cook the bacon pieces over medium heat for about 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add in hash browns and continue cooking stirring until potatoes are browned and crisp (about 12-15 minutes).
  3. Add in onions, bell pepper and jalapeno (if using) continue to cook until veggies are tender (about 3-4 minutes).
  4. Season with seasoned salt and black pepper to taste.
  5. Skim some of the fat off if desired.
  6. In a bowl whisk together the eggs with whipping cream until well combined; pour over the veggies/potato mixture in the skillet, then stir with a wooden spoon or spatula to combine.
  7. Cook over medium heat gently lifting portions with spatula so uncooked portion flows underneath or until the eggs are just set (about 4-5 minutes).
  8. Sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese, then let stand for 2-3 minutes until melted.
  9. Sprinkle with chopped green onions.
  10. Delicious!

OMG this was excellent for Dave's Father's Day breakfast. Loved the jalapeno pepper also in this. 2 onions seemed like a lot to me (I know you like lots of onions) so I decreased it to 2 green onions and that was good for us. Other than that, made as directed. Thanks Kitz for another winner.

Delicious! This was a great one-dish meal that was easy and tasty and I loved the addition of the jalapeno. I had the cheese and green onions sitting on the counter, but forgot them until after we had devoured the dish, lol. Next time I'll be sure to add them. Thanks for another great recipe Kitten.
