This is my “famous” recipe simply because I often make it for Sunday brunch. It’s easy to walk away from if you need some coffee or a moment to chat with friends. It is also very adaptable so feel free to make your own veggie and meat (or no meat) choices. You can also change the amount to meet the hunger of your crowd. I usually make enough for about 10.
Sunday Morning Skillet
4 cups diced or shredded potatoes
1 doz. eggs
2 cups shredded cheddar
2 tbsp of milk (although water works if you have none)
1 pound ground sausage
1 medium onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
2 tbsp minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 healthy dash of olive oil
Fry the sausage, onion, garlic and peppers in a large skillet, drain and set aside.
In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk, salt and pepper
In the same skillet that you cooked the sausage, add a healthy dash of olive oil and fry the hash browns. The potatoes do not have to get crisp, just heated through.
Add the sausage mix
Stir to combine.
Once the sausage is hot again add the egg mixture.
Stir frequently so the eggs combine with the potato/sausage mix.
Once the eggs are no longer runny, add the cheese.
Stir to combine and continue stirring until the cheese is melted.
I serve this with sour cream and hot sauce on the side. It is always a huge hit and we rarely have leftovers.
