Ingredients

  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1/2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 C frozen hashbrowns
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • Melt butter in hot skillet. Immediately add potatoes and press down into an even disc. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until golden. Flip (in sections is okay if necessary).
  • Reduce temperature to a touch above low.
  • Omelet variation: Immediately pour lightly seasoned whisked eggs over potatoes. Sprinkle with bacon. Cover and cook until set, 3-5 minutes.
  • Sunny side up variation: Immediately crack two eggs over hash browns. Sprinkle with bacon. Cover and cook until whites are nearly set, 3-5 minutes.
