Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup refrigerated shredded hash brown potatoes (from 20-oz bag)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (2 oz)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped sliced deli ham
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 eggs

Steps

  • 1
    Heat waffle maker to 375°F or medium-high heat. (Waffle makers without a nonstick coating may need to be brushed with vegetable oil or sprayed with cooking spray.)
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix oil, hash brown potatoes, cheese, ham and 1 tablespoon of the green onion.
  • 3
    Spoon potato mixture evenly onto waffle maker. Close lid of waffle maker. Bake 4 to 5 minutes or until deep golden brown and crisp. Carefully remove from waffle maker; cut in half.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in nonstick 8-inch skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Break egg into custard cup, small bowl or saucer. Carefully slide egg into skillet. Repeat with remaining egg. Reduce heat to low.
  • 5
    Cook uncovered 4 to 5 minutes, spooning butter over eggs, until film forms over top and whites and yolks are firm, not runny. Serve egg on top of each waffle half; garnish with remaining tablespoon of green onion.
