I have named this the Sunday brunch “Hashomwich”. I was playing around with one of my favorite cooking tools – my GE Waffle Iron and some favorite ingredients to come up with a little “twist” for brunch today.
My husband, David, and I enjoy our weekend breakfast time together. We stay so busy during the week that we rarely sit down for breakfast. This was so much fun to assemble – needless to say my husband wanted another one – but I said too late – waffle maker is clean and put up!
Give this a try and let me know what you think!
-1 lb bag of Simply Potato Hashbrowns
-4 large eggs
-1/2 cup fresh mushrooms
-1/2 cup diced onions
-salt and pepper
-1 tsp of Daks Lemon Pepper Spice
-4 slice Sargento pepper jack cheese
-6 slices of cooked bacon
-2 tbs maple syrup
-1 tbs olive oil
-1 tbs chopped scallions
**Bacon prep: I like to cook my bacon in the oven – less mess. Preheat the oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with tin foil. Lay the slices of bacon in a single layer and brush the maple syrup on each slice and a generous sprinkle of pepper on each. Bake for 6 minutes, flip the bacon and cook another 6 min. Remove to a paper towel lined plate and set aside.
-Preheat your waffle iron on medium high for about 7 minutes.
-While you are waiting on your waffle iron, heat a skillet with the olive oil and add the mushrooms and onions and saute till translucent, about 8 minutes over medium heat and set aside.
-Place about 3/4 cup of the hashbrown on both sides of the sprayed waffle iron (I like Pam). Close the waffle maker and cook for about 8 minutes. You can remove them when they are crispy on the outside and can be removed in two hash cakes. Repeat the same process until you have 4 sandwiches (top and bottom). Set aside.
-Whisk up 4 eggs and pour into a preheated, Pam sprayed large skillet. When the omlette begins to set on top add your mushrooms and onions and Daks lemon pepper and flip into one large omlette. Cut the omlette into 4 squares (its ok if they are a little “odd” shaped)
Assembly: (The fun part!)
-Hashbrown cake on the bottom
-Omlette square on top of hashbrown
-Slice of pepper jack cheese on top of omlette
-Top with a few slices of bacon
-A sprinkle of green onions
-Top with your final hashbrown cake.
