Hash brown breakfast pizza

Hash brown breakfast pizza

Growing  up, every month end when my mum used to go shopping, on the trip back home, she would buy pizza and the left overs would be kept for breakfast the following morning.

I never thought of actually making a homemade pizza from scratch and especially not for breakfast.

My father is not a man that likes to wait long for something to eat. He will walk up and down past the stove and make the breakfast take longer to make than it should take to make.

Although I made this base the night before, I work up late and had to put the oven on super high to get the eggs done in 5 minutes.

My verdict I actually enjoyed this considering that I am not a huge fan of baked eggs, I prefer fried or scrambled but not a huge fan of baked.

After my dad was grumbling that he was hungry he ate around the egg part of the pizza. What a waste. He could have told me that he didn’t want an egg, I could have saved myself all the praying stress of praying and pleading with the egg not to run off the pizza and all over the bottom of the oven.

Ingredients for the base:

  • 2 x potatoes, peeled and grated.
  • 2 x eggs.
  • ½ x cup cheddar cheese, grated.
  • Salt and pepper.

Method for the base:

  • Add potatoes to a bowl of cold water.
  • Allow to soak in the water for a couple of minutes.
  • Pour the potatoes onto a muslin cloth and strain out any excess water.
  • Add the eggs, cheese and seasoning and mix till well combined.
  • Using your hands, flatten this mixture onto a greased baking tray.
  • Pop into a preheated oven and bake at 180 degrees for 30 minutes or until the base is golden brown.
  • Allow to cool completely.

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 6 x rashers of bacon, fried till crispy.
  • ½ x cup cheddar cheese, grated.
  • 2 x eggs
  • 1 x cup chopped mushrooms.
  • Method:
  • Layer all the ingredients ontop of the pizza.
  • Pop into a preheated oven and bake at 180 degrees till the egg whites and baked but the yellow is still runny.

*PS: The bacon can be substituted for chicken rashers.
