The best part: You can use frozen hash browns, which cook in as little as 4 minutes in a pan, so this dish comes together quickly. Here’s how to make hash brown toast whenever you’re craving a delicious change from your usual breakfast routine!

Easy one-skillet trick for hash brown toast

Making this dish involves cooking the hash browns, eggs and bacon before assembling the toast. Rather than using separate pans, these ingredients are fine to cook in the same skillet. Just be sure to nail the timing of when they’re added to the pan so everything’s warm and evenly cooked. Try following this order to sauté this ingredient trio without dirtying a ton of dishes.

  1. Give the bacon a couple minutes to cook over medium heat.
  2. Once the slices are starting to brown, add the hash browns to cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until they’re golden. 
  3. Remove these ingredients from the skillet
  4. If needed, add extra oil to the pan before frying eggs in the pan to your liking. 
  5. Take eggs out of the skillet and proceed with remaining steps in the recipe.

  • ¼ cup diced onions
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cooking oil spray
