Hungryman Breakfast

Hungryman Breakfast (serves six)
This is a one pot recipe that is warm and filling for cold weather.


  • 1 lb precooked sausage "crumbles" or precooked sausage patties
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 2 lb diced frozen hash brown potatoes
  • 1 lb shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper


  1. In a large high-sided pot, heat the oil on medium-low heat, and cook the potatoes according to the directions (cover the pot to shorten cooking time and to retain moisture).
  2. Season with salt and pepper. Turn potatoes and season again. Lower the heat to low.
  3. In a skillet, cook the sausage (if not precooked).
  4. While the other items are cooking, beat the eggs in a separate bowl or pot.
  5. Dice the sausage patties (if not using "crumbles").
  6. Layer the sausage over the potatoes in the pot.
  7. Pour the eggs evenly over the potatoes and sausage; it will sink down into the other items.
  8. Cover and cook on medium-low until the eggs firm up.
  9. Layer the cheese evenly on top and recover for several minutes, until the cheese melts.
  10. Carve out deep spoonfuls with a serving spoon or spatula, to get some of all the layers in each portion
