This is a great easy recipe for that quick breakfast and it tastes so good too! I cut the recipe in 1/2 since there are only 2 of us.


2 cup frozen hash brown potatoes; shredded
0.5 lb. pork sausage; (8 oz) cooked & browned
1 10-oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies; drained
0.5 lb. VELVEETA cheese; (8 oz) cut-up
6 Eggs

Original recipe makes 6



PREP TIME: 5 min TOTAL TIME: 45 min

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large skillet, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray brown sausage over medium heat; drain. Add potatoes and tomatoes; mix well. Cook for 5 minutes and stir.

Transfer to a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray and then top with VELVEETA.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with 2 Tbsp. of water until well blended. Pour evenly over the ingredients in the pie plate.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until egg mixture is set in the center and the VELVEETA is melted. Remove from the oven and let stand for about 5 minutes.

Cut into wedges and serve hot.

VARIATION: For a meatless option, prepare as directed but substitute with 1/2 cup of chopped onion for the browned sausage and add to the skillet with the potatoes and tomatoes.

I used a 4 cheese Mexican blend instead of Velveeta and I also cooked it on top of stove. We love it and will definite make it again.

Tasty!! Added Canadian bacon and crumbled crispy bacon on top!! Husband only preferred either less velveeta or try shredded jack next time. No green chile since its a little too spicy for my three year old.

I made this recipe as-is. It was really delicious! I will definitely make this dish again, but will add chopped sweet onion and maybe use a blend of shredded Mexican cheeses instead of Velveeta. Another idea is to use chopped-up turkey link-sausage.

I made this with breakfast sausage and ham since that is what needed to be used up. Substituted a shredded Mexican cheese blend for velveeta. It was great! Would substitute a smoked sausage and add onions next time. Lots of possibilities!
