Skillet Egg and Hash Browns Breakfast

"Everything cooked in one pan than served at the table. I reconstructed this from other recipes I have made and a breakfast quiche I once had at Disney. Quite easy and DH gobbled it up."

Ready In:




  • I snip the bacon into 1 inch pieces and fry up in a 12 inch deep skillet.
  • When nice and crisp remove and reserve enough bacon drippings to coat the bottom of the pan. Add some cooking oil if necessary (just a little). Place hashbrowns in pan and distribute evenly to cook. Top with chopped onion. As bottom browns turn to cook all potatoes and onions. When a nice brown all over. Pat into pan to form crust.
  • In a bowl beat the eggs till fluffy and add 1 cup of the cheese. Pour over potato crust in pan and move around till evenly distributed. Place bacon pieces all over the top. Cover with a lid and let the eggs cook through. I add the extra cheese in the end and cover again. Watch not to burn the bottom.

  1. A very wonderful and filling breakfast! I added a little cream to the eggs and beat them so they would be super fluffy. I also only had cheddar cheese. I cooked the onions for a little bit in the bacon grease to soften them and added them to the hashbrowns and mixed them up. I made a little extra to have left overs and I am glad I did. Very delicious! It is a great base for so many add-ins!


<p><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /> <br /> <br />I work in a hospital as a Unit Secretary in a Cardiology Unit. It is such a busy, fast paced job that there are times I come home drained. I have learned to make fast easy meals from Recipezaar and save the more complicated ones for my days off. My husband is in the Army and was away for a year and now is stationed so far that he comes home on Friday nights and goes back Monday mornings. So I always like to have some nice meals waiting for him. <br />I always say it is like we are dating again. Since we only see eachother on weekends I try to impress him with a nice homecooked meal when he gets home. He usually eats at the mess hall. Other nights we will go out to dinner and a movie. I have one son who has been my Rock of Gibraltar through this. so some of meals are geared towards his tastes. He works and goes to college so I try to sneak a special meal in for him when he is home. Which isn't too often. I enjoy trying new recipes and sharing some of mine.</p>
