When morning rolls around I’m not ready for food. Just hand over a nice cup of coffee with flavored cream and I’m good for a couple of hours. But I know I need to eat, so I eventually do.
But what to eat? Scrambled eggs…not my favorite.
French Toast? Only once a month…too fattening.
Pancakes? I like them but it’s too much trouble and not enough protein.
However, I’ve recently been making an egg dish once a week that my husband and I both really enjoy. I call it Hash Brown Egg Skillet. It’s so delicious and is done in about 15 minutes.
You could tweak this recipe to add what you like, but for our tastes I use onions, shredded hash browns, Canadian Bacon and eggs. As the recipe name says, it’s all done in a skillet on the stove. One pan – one great recipe! Here’s how you make it:
Hash Brown Egg Skillet
- 1 -2 Tbl. Olive oil
- 1 1/2 Cups Frozen Hash Browns
- 2 Tbl. chopped onion
- 3 slices Canadian Bacon
- 2 or 3 Eggs
- Salt and Pepper
Place Olive oil in a skillet. Add chopped onion and frozen hash browns. Season with salt and pepper. Over medium high heat, brown potatoes on one side, then flip over and brown other side. This is when I add my Canadian bacon, just to warm it up. Before they get completely brown, make small wells in the potatoes. Crack egg and pour into the wells. Lower heat to low temp and cover with a lid. Let eggs cook until they are they way you like them. I go for sunny side up because we love the yolk runny. I check to be sure the yolk still jiggles after the white is cooked. Using a spatula, divide the portion for each plate and serve!
I served it with sour dough toast and fresh fruit sprinkled with Chocolate-raspberry granola. (The granola is Love Crunch) Yum!
This is a great Sunday breakfast when dinner usually comes later than normal. It’s also a healthy meal and fits into my WW menu plan nicely! I hope you’ll try this! It’s so good…even for non-breakfast lovers!
Are you a breakfast lover or do you eat just because you have to?

Sounds good! Do you add your Canadian bacon with your potatoes?
Good question…I updated the post with this info, but I add it after I flip the potatoes over to brown on the other side. Enjoy!
Now that is something new and it sounds nutritious too! Full of animal protein.
I never skip breakfast and it is usually recommended by nutritionists that one should have heavy breakfast,it should be the heaviest meal of the day!
I hope you try this for one of your filling breakfasts soon! It’s so good!
I plan to make this some weekend soon! Using my recipe creator on the WW app and based on 2 servings, it comes to 6 points a serving on blue. So I would forego the toast with it. I was wondering if you chop your Canadian bacon as shown in the picture, or leave it in slices? Thank you!
Thanks for the info about the WW points! I have never used the recipe creator; I’m going to have do that! Yes, I always chop up the Canadian bacon for this recipe. Enjoy!
