Description

This breakfast hash uses frozen potatoes and gets topped with ham, avocado and a poached egg for a quick weekend breakfast!  


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen breakfast potatoes, thawed 
  • 1/4 cup chopped yellow onion 
  • 2 tbsp chopped green pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped mushroom
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt 
  • 1 1/2 oz thin sliced black forest ham, chopped 
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 an avocado, sliced 
  • 1 tbsp sliced green onion
  • 12 poached eggs 

Instructions

  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat.  Sauté onion and green peppers for 1 minute.  Add mushrooms and sauté for an additional minute.  
  2. Add potatoes, salt and pepper.  Stir the mixture once, then spread to fill the pan.  Reduce heat to just above medium and let the potatoes cook for 5-6 minutes until they begin to brown.  Stir the mixture and add the additional tablespoon of oil.  Flatten again and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes, until the desired doneness is reached. 
  3. Add the ham, stir and cook for 1 minute.  Sprinkle with cheese and cook until melted, stirring once or twice.  
  4. Top with avocado and green onions.  If desired add a poached egg.  Serve immediately.  

Notes

  1. This recipe makes either one large serving or two small servings.  If adding an egg I’d generally say it’s enough for two people. 
  2. If you are planning to add the poached eggs, start cooking them before you start the has to ensure they are done at the same time.
