Skillet Hash Browns w. The Fixings

Time to make this otherwise simple breakfast into a fiesta!  Is it possible to have margaritas for Sunday brunch instead of mimosas?

To add some life to this diner favorite, I mixed together the shredded potatoes with thinly sliced peppers & onions, and topped it off with a poached egg, avocado, sour cream & spicy salsa… can you feel the love?

  4. Pat down evenly across the pan. Tucking in the edges with a spatula. Cook for 10-15 minutes each side.
  5. There’s many ways to flip. I used the Spanish omelet method.
  6. To flip, slide onto a plate. Another plate on top & quickly turn. The browned side should be facing upwards.

  8. Add remaining 2 TBSP oil of oil to the pan, then slide in hash browns cooking for another 15 minutes.
  9. Top with poached egg, salsa, sour cream & sliced avocado to serve.
