The hubby was asking for some hash browns for breakfast one day. Unfortunately, I didn't have any on hand at the time. So this weekend, I decided to surprise him with this dish I concocted to make up for it. Its a whole breakfast meal in one and he loved it. He loves potatoes, so he had 3 servings of this dish. Its pretty simple to make. I used a frozen, store-bought bag of Potatoes O'Brien, which made it even more simple. I served this with a side of my white gravy/bechamel sauce to make it even more rich.
14 oz (half a bag) of frozen Potatoes O'Brien
8 oz (half a tube) breakfast sausage
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. paprika
salt & pepper to taste
1) In a large skillet, brown sausage meat, making sure to break up any large pieces. Remove meat from skillet and set aside.
2) In the same pan, sautee garlic. Add frozen potatoes. Continue cooking until the potatoes have browned to a crisp.
3) Add sausage meat and continue cooking for another minute. Stir in 1/8 tsp. paprika and salt & pepper to taste.
4) Crack 4 eggs over the potato mixture, one at a time. Sprinkle the remaining paprika, salt & pepper to taste on top of the eggs. Cover skillet and cook until egg whites are no longer clear, about 5 minutes.
