Bacon Hash Brown Skillet

6 slices garlic bacon or your favorite brand bacon

1 – 8oz. pkg. mushrooms, sliced, if large slices, cut slices in half

1 small onion, coarsely chopped

1 – 20oz. pkg. Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns

2 T. Butter, if needed

Salt and pepper to taste

6 eggs

1 cup cheddar cheese

Green onion, for garnish

Cook bacon in large nonstick skillet on medium heat until crisp or desired doneness. Remove bacon from skillet, reserving 3 Tbsp. drippings in skillet. Drain bacon on paper towels. If using garlic bacon, not as much fat as in regular bacon, add 2 T. butter to skillet.

Add mushrooms, onions and potatoes to skillet; cover. Cook on medium-high heat 15 min. or until potatoes are browned, stirring occasionally. Add bacon back to skillet; salt and pepper to taste.

Make 6 small wells in potato mixture; fill wells with eggs. Cook, covered, 3 to 4 min. or until egg whites are firm and yolks are cooked to desired doneness. Sprinkle on cheddar cheese. Cover until cheese melts; remove from heat. Let stand, covered, 1 min. before serving. Sprinkle top with green onions, serve with toast and fresh fruit.

Enjoy!!!
