A loaded Baked Potato in a skillet hashbrown form.
Ingredients
  • 4 pieces bacon
  • 1 box Hungry Jack Premium Hashbrown Potatoes
  • ½ teaspoon Coarse Kosher Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped
Instructions
  1. Open the Hungry Jack Hashbrowns and fill it with hot tap water. Close the container and allow to sit for 12 minutes.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy, remove onto a plate lined with a paper towel. Reserve the grease in the skillet.
  3. Crumble the bacon when cool enough to handle.
  4. Drain the excess water from the hashbrowns.
  5. Pour the hasbrowns into the skillet with the bacon grease.
  6. Mix in the salt and pepper.
  7. Cook the hashbrowns over medium high heat, until your desired crispiness, stirring occasionally. I cooked mine for 10 minutes.
  8. With a spatula, flatten the hashrowns into the skillet and cook for a few minutes so the bottom will get crispy.
  9. Remove from heat.
  10. Sprinkle on cheese, bacon, sour cream and chives.
  11. Serve.
Notes
If you are unable to find Hungry Jack Premium Hashbrowns, you can use 1 pound of the brand of hashbrowns you have on hand.
