Measure out the hash-browns, milk, and oil. (See Image)
Get out the eggs.
Decide which of the other ingredients you would like to use, or add some of your own.
As needed, cut or prepare these ingredients to your liking.
The beauty of this recipe is you can play with it and get something slightly different every time depending on what you decide to add to it.
Place the skillet on the stove.
Turn the stove on to Med-High.
Place the small amount of oil in the skillet. (See Image)
Swish the oil around so it covers the bottom of the skillet.
Pour hash-browns in the skillet.
Let cook, flipping hash-browns as needed, until they are golden brown.
Crack the eggs into a bowl. (See First Image)
Pour milk in with the eggs.
Use the fork to beat the eggs and milk together until it is all mixed and the yolk (yellow part of the egg) is completely broken and mixed in. (See Second Image)
Once the hash-browns have finished cooking, reduce heat to Low-Med.
Pour the egg-milk mixture into the skillet. (See Image)
As the eggs cook, be sure to mix them often so they are cooked thoroughly and you get more of a scrambled egg mix than an omelet.
You can add cheese in now if you want or wait until the end and sprinkle on top. (Image shows adding cheese at the end of cooking.)
Add in other ingredients as you please. If adding vegetables, add at the same time as eggs to they are fully cooked. If adding spinach or salsa, it is best to wait until the egg is mostly cooked.
Step 10: Finishing the Dish
The eggs are finished cooking when they are no longer gooey. When this happens, turn off the stove.
Use the spatula to move the food from the skillet to the plate.
Add whatever topping you choose: cheese, salsa, hot sauce, etc. (Image shows an addition of my favorite hot sauce!)
Grab a fork and dig in!
