Hash Brown Prep:

  • If using frozen pre-made hash browns, thaw first and drain excess liquid. Or cook them the night before so it has enough time to cool down, making shredding easier. I cook them in my pressure cooker for 5 minutes with 5 minutes natural pressure release, then quick release. 

Sheet Pan Breakfast

  • Preheat oven to 450 F degrees.
  • Cut bacon strips in half (this makes cooking quicker and easier to assemble later). Place them in single layer on a large sheet pan.
  • Par-cook bacon for 15 minutes in a preheated oven on top rack. Set timer for 15 minutes.
  • While bacon is cooking, combine hash brown, 3/4 cup cheese, salt, paprika, and parsley, and garlic powder together in a large bowl. Toss in kale and combine but don't over mix. 
  • When timer goes off after 15 minutes, remove sheet pan from the oven. Using tongs, remove bacon from sheet pan onto a plate. Carefully pour out excess bacon grease from the pan onto a small jar for other uses, reserving 2-3 tablespoons on the pan for the hash browns. 
  • Toss in the combined hash browns and kale mixture and spread evenly across the pan. 
  • Set bacon strips directly on top of the hash brown and kale mixture and place back in the oven for 8 minutes on top rack.
  • After the hash brown has cooked, remove the pan from the oven. Carefully make 4-6 small wells in the pan. Make sure the bottom of the wells are greased (they should be from the bacon).
  • Break in the eggs into the wells. Season the eggs only with freshly ground salt and pepper. Toss the remaining 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese all throughout the pan.  
  • Set back in the oven on bottom rack for 5-7 minutes for softer yolks or longer for more well-done eggs, depending on preference.
