Ingredients

  • 12 Eggs
  • 1 lb Ground Breakfast Sausage (or 1 lb. Bacon, or 24 Sausage Links)
  • 32 oz Frozen Southern Style Hash browns diced
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • Spray Oil

Instructions

Prep Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  • Lightly coat 2 13x9 pans, or a very large cookie sheet, with cooking spray
  • If using 2 13x9 pans, divide the potatoes evenly between the 2, or spread out onto large cookie
  • sheet. They should be one layer of potatoes. If there are too many in the pan they won't crisp
  • evenly.
  • Evenly pour 4 Tablespoons of vegetable oil over the potatoes.
  • Bake potatoes for 15 minutes. Turn and bake for another 7 minutes. Check the potatoes, are
  • they crispy on all sides? If not, stir them around and continue to cook at 5 minute intervals until
  • crispy and deep golden brown. Once done, divide evenly into bowls.

While Potatoes Bake:

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat.
  • Crumble sausage* into pan and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 10
  • minutes.
  • Drain sausage on a paper towel before dividing into bowls evenly.
  • Wipe the grease out of the pan and use it for scrambling your eggs.

Eggs:

  • In a Medium sized bowl whisk together eggs and ¼ Cup of milk until well blended.
  • Return pan used to cook sausage to stove top over medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp. of olive oil.
  • Pour eggs into pan, and immediately start scrapping and mixing the eggs in the pan for a good 20 seconds. (This will help you achieve a very fluffy scrambled egg)
  • Let cook 30 seconds more, and continue to scrap and turn eggs. Just enough to ensure that they don't brown on the bottom.
  • Cook your eggs until they are done, but not dry. Divide evenly among bowls.

To Finish Bowls:

  • Once the potatoes, sausage, and eggs are divided into your 12 bowls. Give each bowl one turn
  • with a spoon to lightly mix those ingredients together.
  • Top each bowl with about 2 Tbsp. shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Cover each bowl with Press 'n' Seal, making sure to press the plastic wrap lightly down around
  • the food to get any air out before sealing the plastic wrap around the bowls edges.
  • Freeze

To Heat and Eat:

  • Remove bowl from freezer and remove the plastic wrap. Heat in the microwave for 1 ½ minutes, or at 30 second intervals until heated through.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

*If you are using bacon, cook as usual, drain, and crumble into bowls.
*For Link Sausage, cook as usual, drain. Mix egg and potatoes first, top with cheese, then place 2 sausages in each bowl.
