Recipe by Sandaidh
I had my first taste of this while working as a volunteer at a local state park during a pioneer reenactment day. A gentleman was cooking it and handing out small samples. It was so good, I had to ask for the recipe. He told me - sausage, frozen hash browns, eggs and cheese, all cooked in one pot. I couldn't have asked for a simpler, more filling and delicious meal. I've wanted to post it for a while, but I wanted to make it for someone special first. It's also a good campfire recipe. Leftovers reheat well. I usually make this for my son and I, but I have made it for 6. We used 9 eggs and could easily have used the 11 available. All amounts are variable according to personal preferance.
- 1⁄2 lb bulk sausage (may substitute lean ground pork or split half sausage, half lean ground pork if desired)
- 1 (25 ounce) packagecountry style frozen hash brown potatoes
- 6 eggs
- shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Brown meat in large pot over medium heat.
- Add frozen hash browns and stir occasionally, until potatoes are cooked (they will not turn brown).
- Break eggs into bowl and stir with fork to mix well.
- Add eggs to meat and hash brown mixture and stir until eggs are done. (Continuous stirring will also help keep everything from sticking to the bottom of the pot).
- Sprinkle shredded cheese over the mixture if desired and stir in until it melts.
- Serve hot.
