Hash Brown Egg Scramble

I feel almost silly posting this recipe because it is almost not a recipe.  However, it is sooo delicious and a really easy way to make a hot breakfast on a chilly day – even a weekday. All you need is frozen hash brown potatoes and fresh eggs. In minutes, you can make this super tasty Hash Brown Egg Scramble.

Hash Brown Egg Scramble

2 tablespoons butter
1 to 2 cups frozen hash browns
4 eggs
1/2 cup shredded cheese

To serve 1 adult and 3 hungry preschoolers, I used about 1 to 2 cups of frozen hashbrowns sauteed in 2 tablespoons of melted butter in a large frying pan.  Brown them on both sides.  (About 8 minutes or so.)  I add 4 eggs or the equivalent of 4 eggs in the form of egg whites or egg beaters.  Scramble the eggs around the cooked hash browns, mixing them together well.  Add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese and stir well.  Remove from heat.  I like to season mine with Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning but the kiddos prefer theirs plain or with a little Krazy Salt.

So delicious!  So easy! Enjoy!

  1. Thanks Erin for the inspiration! I am cooking the hash browns now, but much to my dismay all 3 kids grabbed some lunchables that I just brought back from the supermarket. I will be enjoying this meal with the hubby. BTW, how do you get your kids to eat so many different dishes?? It’s a daily battle to get Hannie to try any fruit or vegetable. It’s a battle of the wills.

  2. Thanks, Whit! My kids have one rule about food… they have to try everything. However, if they try it and don’t like it, there usually isn’t a back-up plan so basically they’re stuck until the next meal. 🙂 Hunger works wonders getting kids to eat new foods!
