Hearts at Home Blog Hop - Homemade Recipes

May 19, 2011

I hope you'll join in today with the Hearts at Home Third Thursday Blog Hop.  We're sharing our favorite family homemade recipes.

I thought I'd share a new breakfast creation I've been making and just can't seem to make often enough for me!  Forgive that there are no exact measurements, but you can't mess it up!

For Christmas I got a new electric skillet and I love this thing!  It is not divided, but I can cook two things at once if I need to.

So I start by melting about 1/2 cup of butter in the skillet and then add frozen hashbrowns, whichever kind you prefer.  I like the flavoring of butter instead of oil.  I add some onion, either flakes or fresh, and salt and pepper to your liking.  I like to cook my hashbrowns until they are golden brown.  When the hashbrowns are near ready, on the other side of the skillet, I'll start frying some sausage, either links or ground.  I like both.  Once the sausage is done, if I'm using ground, I combine it with the hash browns.

Then move all that to once side and start some scrambled eggs on the other side.  When I add the egg, I usually put a wooden spoon under the feet of my skillet so it doesn't run into the cooked hashbrowns and make them soft.  After the eggs are cooked, I mixed that into the hashbrowns and sausage.

You could get fancy and add green or red peppers as well, whatever your family enjoys.  I really like this meal and the best part is -- only one pan to wash!!

What a great tip about the wooden spoon under the legs of the skillet! I need to keep that one in mind.

My husband makes a similiar version . . . I love it when he fixes breakfast. The wooden spoon idea - I will try that.

I'm all for a one skillet meal! Thanks for sharing Cherie. I'm inspired!

I agree with Jill.. one skillet means less dishes! Thanks for the great idea!
