“I had my first taste of this while working as a volunteer at a local state park during a pioneer reenactment day. A gentleman was cooking it and handing out small samples. It was so good, I had to ask for the recipe. He told me - sausage, frozen hash browns, eggs and cheese, all cooked in one pot. I couldn't have asked for a simpler, more filling and delicious meal. I've wanted to post it for a while, but I wanted to make it for someone special first. It's also a good campfire recipe. Leftovers reheat well. I usually make this for my son and I, but I have made it for 6. We used 9 eggs and could easily have used the 11 available. All amounts are variable according to personal preferance.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown meat in large pot over medium heat.
  2. Add frozen hash browns and stir occasionally, until potatoes are cooked (they will not turn brown).
  3. Break eggs into bowl and stir with fork to mix well.
  4. Add eggs to meat and hash brown mixture and stir until eggs are done. (Continuous stirring will also help keep everything from sticking to the bottom of the pot).
  5. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the mixture if desired and stir in until it melts.
  6. Serve hot.
