I’m someone who believes that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I love all kinds of breakfast foods – and sometimes my biggest challenge of the morning is deciding which delicious breakfast foods to make! 😉 Do I have scrambled eggs and hash browns? Or maybe sausage and gravy with biscuits? (And don’t forget the cheese!)

Hash Browns Breakfast Stack - A delicious, easy breakfast with layer upon layer of delicious flavor!

Today’s Hash Browns Breakfast Stack is my idea of the ultimate breakfast or brunch! It’s layer upon layer of all of my favorite breakfast foods: crispy fried hash browns, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese (times two) and – oh yeah – a generous spoonful of some fantastic sausage gravy on top!

We used our panini press and Simply Potatoes® Hash Browns to make the crispy potato rounds in our Hash Browns Breakfast Stacks. No peeling, shredded or cutting is required – just open the package of Simply Potatoes®, use a biscuit cutter to form a round of hash browns and transfer to your panini press to cook. (See the recipe below for how-to photos.) And an added bonus for a busy morning: Using the panini press to make the crispy potato rounds takes half the time to cook – no flipping required!

Hash Browns Breakfast Stacks - A Family Feast

Hash Browns Breakfast Stacks

  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 40 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 3 servings

Ingredients

Sausage gravy

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 sweet Italian sausage links, about 1/3 of a pound
  • 4 even tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon dry mustard
  • Few grinds fresh nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 cups whole milk

Remaining ingredients

  • 1 20-ounce bag Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • Kitchen pan spray
  • 6 whole eggs
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  • 6 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Chopped chives for garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. Make the sausage gravy by melting the one tablespoon of butter in a medium sauce pan over medium high heat.
  2. Remove the sausage meat from the casings and place in the pan with the butter. Stir with a wooden spoon until browned and crumbled, about three minutes.
  3. Add the flour, mustard, nutmeg, salt and pepper and stir and cook for two minutes.
  4. Add cold milk one third at a time and whip with a whisk between each third.
  5. Adjust by adding more milk if you like the gravy thinner. Set aside on a low flame.
  6. Divide the shredded potatoes into nine portions about ½ cup each.
  7. Using a four inch cookie cutter, place each portion into the cutter and press with the back of a spoon to form nine round discs.
  8. Heat a Panini press to the hottest possible setting. We set ours to sear.
  9. Once the press is hot, butter the bottom plate and place two or three potato discs onto the butter then brush the tops with butter and pull down the top press. Tip: As you pick up each disc from your cutting board, place the cookie cutter over it and slip a spatula under it to lift and slide onto the press.
  10. Cook each batch five minutes or until crispy and browned. Set each aside while you continue to cook.
  11. You could keep each batch warm in a low oven but we did not find that to be necessary.
  12. Mix eggs with milk and in a large skillet, cook scrambled eggs by first spraying pan with spray.
  13. To assemble, place one disc on each of three plates and top each with one sixth of the eggs and one once of cheese. Place a second disc over the cheese and repeat with the remaining eggs and cheese. Top with the last three discs and pour the sausage gravy over the top.
  14. Finally top with the optional chopped chives and serve.

    Actually a cold piece of pizza or a warm cinnamon roll with a huge glass of cold milk are my favorite but not often realized favorite breakfasts. However, crispy hash browns and eggs are a close third–with sausage gravy it might rise higher in the ranks. Thank you for this opportunity.

    This idea looks like so much fun, especially for the grand kids to build. They love biscuits/potatoes with country gravy so this will be a neat treat for them this Sunday at our monthly brunch. Thanks for this fun treat.

    We make a cheesy hashbrown casserole that has diced ham in it. Coincidentally, we cook it in our cast iron skillet to give it a very crisp layer on the bottom.

    My favorite breakfast meal would be my omelets, (any kind)! Served with a side of ham and hashbrowns! Sometimes with sausage country gravy! (Ok, now I’m drooling)! My kids love my omelets any time of the day, and I’m always happy to make it for them!
