Cheesy Breakfast Potatoes

This was a delicious way to start the day! This was a variation on the Cowboy Scramble we enjoy regularly for a hearty weekend breakfast and a great way to use Ore-Ida's tasty hash browns. This has a great combination of vegetables, tender and crispy potatoes, and tasty sausage - the cheese ties it all together and makes this both very filling, and quite the treat as well! My son and I like this with a fried egg on the side and a little bit of ketchup to dip the potato mixture in.

Cheesy Breakfast Potatoes adapted from Sargento on AllRecipes

4 1/2 cups cubed Ore-Ida Hash Browns (Southern Style Diced Potatoes)
1 TBS olive oil (more as needed)
8 ounces ground sausage
1/2 medium green bell pepper, diced
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 tsp minced garlic
1 cup cheddar cheese, divided
Salt and pepper, to taste

  1. Cook sausage, green pepper, onion, and garlic in skillet for about 10-15 minutes, or until meat is cooked through and vegetables are tender. 
  2. Meanwhile, in a separate skillet heat oil over medium heat in large skillet. Add potatoes; cook 10-15 minutes, or until potatoes are browned and tender, stirring frequently (add additional oil if needed to aid in browning and prevent sticking).
  3. Add meat mixture to the potatoes and stir gently to combine. Add 1 cup cheese; stir until melted. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
