This awesome "breakfast for two" has layer after layer of delicious flavors and textures. It's made with southern-style country ham, sautéed mushrooms, melty swiss cheese and "over easy" eggs stacked on crispy hash brown potato patties. Just add a green salad and it would also make a great lunch or dinner.

How to Make MUSHROOM, COUNTRY HAM & SWISS BREAKFAST STACK

Step-by-Step

  • 1Note: Recipe, as written, is for a double portion, meant for sharing (OR for one VERY hungry person!) Cut recipe in half for single serving. For multiple servings, increase ingredient quantities accordingly and use a large sheet pan and a large skillet.
  • 2Gather and prep ingredients (slice mushrooms, etc...)
  • 3In toaster oven or regular oven, bake hash brown patties according to package instructions. (I line toaster pan with foil and lightly coat with cooking oil spray.) Set your timer.
  • 4While hash browns are baking, to a small nonstick skillet, add country ham pieces; fry ham over medium heat for about one to 2 minutes.
  • 5Turn ham pieces over, add about 2 tablespoons water, cover with foil, reduce heat to medium-low and allow to simmer until water has evaporated.
  • 6Remove ham to small plate or to the foil used to cover skillet; use kitchen shears to cut ham into smaller, bite-size pieces, if desired (I do.) Set aside.
  • 7Melt 1 teaspoon butter in same small nonstick skillet used to fry ham; add mushrooms and sauté (stirring almost constantly) over medium/medium-high heat until mushrooms have softened and begin to brown; remove from skillet and place with ham.
  • 8As soon as hash browns are finished baking, adjust patties so that long sides are touching.
  • 9Place swiss cheese slices on top. (Reduce oven heat to low and keep warm if hash browns are ready before you're finished with the mushrooms.)
  • 10Mix ham and mushrooms together, then spoon 1/2 on top of the cheese; return to low oven to keep warm.
  • 11In same skillet, melt remaining 1 teaspoon butter over medium/medium-high heat; crack eggs and empty into skillet; fry until whites are no longer translucent (about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes;) turn eggs over and shut off heat.
  • 12Remove prepared hash brown patties from oven to serving plate; slide eggs from skillet onto topped patties; season with small pinch of salt and pepper, if desired.
  • 13Spoon remaining ham and mushroom mixture over eggs.
  • 14Garnish with chives, if desired. Serve immediately.
