Breakfast for Dinner

This is one of my favorite breakfast for dinner recipes. My oldest son thinks I am ruining good bacon but only because he doesn't like eggs. This is a favorite for everyone else in the family and while it can be a little labor intensive it is a 3 ingredient meals that is a good filler especially in the winter months. You could also substitute sausage into this meal if that is what you have on hand. I do like to use a little grease to cook the hashbrowns in but you can easily substitute with vegetable or canola oil.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 pounds bacon
  • 12-18 eggs
  • 1 bag frozen shredded hash browns

Instructions

  1. Cook bacon in batches on stovetop as needed. Sometimes I will cook the bacon in the oven to make the prep time and cooks time shorter.
  2. Remove about half the bacon grease from the pan, leave a small layer to cook the hash browns in
  3. Put has browns in pan. Use salt and pepper on top for seasoning. Cover for about 10 minutes on medium heat.
  4. While the hashbrowns are cooking, in a large bowl crack your eggs and whip them together. Use salt and pepper to season.
  5. Using kitchen scissors cut the bacon into small pieces and put into the egg mixture
  6. Stir the eggs and bacon together.
  7. Remove cover from hashbrown pan and give it a minute or two to brown up. Flip and finish cooking the hash browns.
  8. Once the hash browns are cooked pour the egg mixture into the pan.
  9. Flip and cook until all the eggs is thoroughly cooked.
  10. Serve with toasts, english muffins, biscuits or any other breakfast item.

Cut the Bacon

I use a clan pair of kitchen scissors to cut the bacon over the bowl. For me it is faster than chopping and all the bacon ends up in the egg mix. I throw the kitchen scissors in the dishwasher when I am done.

Browning the hashbrowns

I like my hash browns to be nice and crispy before adding the egg mixture. It give it a better consistency and texture. Flip a section at a time as they brown.
