Country Brunch Skillet Recipe

Frozen hash browns and packaged shredded cheese shave minutes off preparation of this skillet breakfast from Elvira Brunnquell of Port Washington, Wisconsin. "It's an appealing meal-in-one that you can do in about 30 minutes," she notes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 bacon strips
  • 6 cups frozen cubed hash brown potatoes
  • 3/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon; crumble and set aside. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons of drippings. Add the potatoes, green pepper, onion, salt and pepper to drippings; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until potatoes are browned and tender, stirring occasionally.
  • 2. Make six wells in the potato mixture; break one egg into each well. Cover and cook on low heat for 8-10 minutes or until eggs are completely set. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon. Yield: 6 servings.
