Instructions Checklist
  • Place potatoes in a saucepan and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until just starting to be tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and place under cool running water to cool, then drain and pat dry. Grate into a large bowl.

  • Separate the potato shreds into two sections, and place each one on a square of waxed paper. Pat each section into a 6 inch circle.

  • Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry until evenly browned, then set aside to drain on paper towels. In a nonstick skillet over low heat, cook eggs until lightly scrambled. Eggs need to stay slightly wet.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. While the oil heats, place the egg, bacon strips and cheese in even layers on top of one of the potato circles. Place the other circle on the top, using the waxed paper to pick it up. Place the whole hash-brown sandwich into the skillet, and fry until nicely browned on both sides, about 10 minutes per side. Cut into wedges, and serve hot.

Ok this recipe gave me the inspiration to make my own version of this recipe. Take the frozen hashbrown patties and make them according to package fry up an egg per each hash brown. Make the sandwich by placing hash brown on toast then egg then bacon then a cheese slice then topping with toast. Hubby likes to add ketchup salt and pepper. This is a manly kind of sandwich.

This took a long time to make and wasn't that great for all the work. I liked the taste but my husband thought it was a little bland. Probably won't make it again. Read More

This took a while to make but the end result was very tasty! I did have a hard time getting my hash brown to stay in a nice circle. Next time I make this I might try using frozen hash brown patties to make the process a little quicker too. All in all I'll definitely make this again! Read More

While looking for something easy and yummy to make for dinner I came across this recipe - we love to eat breakfast at night!! My only problem was trying to flip the "sandwich" to brown the other side?!?! When writing this review my husband suggested I give it the "empty plate" award!! He finished off ever last bite and then some!!! Read More

I have never tried making this as a "sandwich" but I have frequently combined pretty much these exact ingredients as a breakfast skillet. I will usually add onion mushrooms and green peppers or jalapenos also. Trying to make a sandwich out of it sounds a little too problematic to me. Also I don't boil potatoes for this whenever I make baked potatoes I usually throw extra ones in. They keep well in the fridge and you can slice them for fried potatoes peel & dice them for a quick potato hash or even potato salad or you can grate them for hash browns. Left-over baked potatoes are a great thing to keep on hand for a quick easy meal anytime of the day. There's lots more things you can do with them than I've already mentioned. Read More

My only complaint was as others said it was really tricky to turn over and mine broke and we had a yummy casserole instead of a yummy sandwich! Would adding an egg to the potatoes hold them together better and make it flip easier? I don't know but will try it next time and there will be a next time. Read More
