Hopefully the effects of any holiday over-consumption are a distant memory, but while hangovers are still fresh in many people's minds, I thought I'd share this recipe for hangover hash. It's actually a great weeknight, breakfast-for-dinner kind of dish or a hearty addition to any brunch menu. The combination of hash browns, eggs, breakfast meat, and cheese all in one pan makes both preparation and cleanup easy and quick.
Of course, it's also the perfect morning-after-the-party fare, so you may want to have the recipe on hand for next time ... even if you're still promising yourself there will be no next time.
- 1/4 cup butter
- 40 ounces shredded frozen hash browns, thawed
- 8 ounces cooked sausage (any kind you like)
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1/4 cup chopped green or red pepper
- 12 eggs, lightly beaten
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the potatoes, sausage, onion, and pepper. Cook uncovered for about 15 minutes on medium heat, until potatoes turn brown.
Push the potato mixture to the sides of the pan and pour the eggs into the center of the skillet. Cook and stir until eggs are cooked through. Season with salt and pepper.
Reduce heat to low, then combine eggs with potato mixture.
Top with cheese and cook for a couple more minutes until cheese melts.
