Start your day off on the right foot with this warm and hearty Hash Brown Breakfast Skillet.
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
In a large bowl, mix together the thawed hash browns, two eggs, salt, and pepper.
Using your hands, firmly press the hashbrown mixture into an oiled, oven-safe skillet. Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove the baked hash browns from the oven.
Top the hash browns with the homemade cheese sauce*, bacon, and tomatoes.
Crack five eggs over the top and season with salt and pepper.
Bake for about 15 minutes, or until egg whites are set but yolks are slightly runny. For a less runny yolk, bake another 3-5 minutes.
Garnish with chives. Serve warm.
