Simple Cheesy Skillet Hash Browns and Eggs

Teri & Jenny
A recipe for Simple Cheesy Skillet Hash Browns and Eggs. The eggs are cooked so the yolks are runny, and the hash browns are crispy. This recipe makes a delicious one skillet breakfast! We serve ours with toast to dip into the runny egg yolks.

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cups frozen, shredded potatoes
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup shredded white cheddar
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced chives
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Place a 10” cast iron skillet into an oven preheated at 375˚F, for 10 minutes.
  • Carefully remove skillet from oven and add 2 tablespoons butter and oil, swirling the melting butter across the entire surface.
  • Add shredded potatoes and spread into an even layer and create 3 pockets within the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Dot 1 1/2 tablespoons butter over the surface and transfer skillet back into the oven for 15-18 minutes.

Add a cracked egg into each pocket, top the potatoes with shredded cheese and return the skillet to the oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until the egg whites are set, with the yolks still creamy and the top of the potatoes are golden brown.
