Egg and Potato Mix-up

Egg and Potato Mix-up is a great company breakfast!

We have enjoyed Egg and Potato Mix-up for many years.  It is one of my favorite things to make for company. Leftovers warm up easily too.

I got this many years ago from my Taste of Home magazines.  They called it Morning mix-up (you can find it here) but we often make it for supper.  I use the O’Brien potato mix with onion and peppers already in it to simplify the preparation.  There is no chopping when those are used; just thaw and dump them in the skillet.

You can use diced ham, sausage or any breakfast meat.

I always cook this in my Presto electric skillet.  It is plenty big so I can easily stir without pushing it out of the pan and it cleans up so easily.

  1. Gather your ingredients.
  2. Melt 4 Tbsp of the butter in skillet on medium heat (325*).
  3. Add potatoes O'Brien and meat. Cook until potatoes are tender but not too soft; about 7 minutes. You don't want them to be mushy.
  4. In a separate bowl, add eggs and salt and pepper and beat eggs with a fork until scrambled. (If I am using ham, I do not add more salt.)
  5. Make a place in the middle of the skillet and add the other 2 Tbsp of butter.
  6. Add eggs.
  7. Push potato and meat mixture from edges into eggs to gently mix in.
  8. Cover and cook, stiring occassionally, until eggs are set.
  9. When eggs are set, turn off heat and sprinkle with cheese and chives and cover for just a few more minutes so cheese will melt. I have one who does not like cheese so do half with and half without.
