Make this Sunny Side Up Hash Brown Breakfast Pizza for breakfast, brunch or even dinner. Whichever you choose, it’s always a winner!
I haven’t shared a breakfast pizza recipe in quite a few years, so I thought it was time to come up with something new. The last one I shared, I called Easy Breakfast Pizza, and it dates back to 2011. This new recipe I call Sunny Side Up Hash Brown Breakfast Pizza uses pop-tube crescent rolls, frozen shredded hash browns, American cheese slices, eggs, diced ham, and chopped scallions for garnish.
This Hash Brown Breakfast Pizza can feed several hungry people. However, the night I made it (we had it for dinner) I wasn’t feeding several hungry people. It was only my husband and myself. My point in telling you that was that the Hash Brown Breakfast Pizza heated up relatively well the very next day when my husband took to work for lunch. Naturally, the egg yolks were no longer runny due to the reheat, but he said it still tasted great! We got several successful reheats out of it! But, if you don’t like leftovers, and you don’t have a lot of people to feed, invite some over and have a Hash Brown Breakfast Pizza party!! 🙂
Since I had some leftover ham in the fridge, that’s what I used. But if you’d like to add some pre-cooked bacon or sausage to your breakfast pizza instead of ham, by all means, go for it. Or, if you’d like to leave the meat off entirely, do it! It’s your Hash Brown Breakfast Pizza, make it your way!
Let’s get cooking. Hash Brown Breakfast Pizza will take approximately 30-40 minutes from start to finish.
Roll out two tubes of pop crescent dough onto a 13″ x 9″ baking sheet. Partially bake the dough in a preheated 350-degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove the crust from the oven and top evenly with slices of American cheese (or your favorite variety of cheese).
While the crust is parbaking, heat a large skillet over medium/high heat and add 2 tablespoons olive oil, and 2 tablespoons butter. Add one package (30 ounces) of frozen shredded hash browns that have been partially thawed. Allow the potatoes to cook in the skillet for 5 minutes before stirring. While the potatoes are cooking, dice up two cups of ham.
Stir the potatoes and add 1 teaspoon coarse salt, ½ teaspoon black pepper, and the ham. Stir and continue cooking an additional 2-3 minutes.
Spread the cooked potatoes and ham evenly over the prepared crescent crust with cheese. Make 8 wells in the hash brown topping and carefully crack 8 eggs into each of the wells. Season the eggs with salt and pepper.
Bake the Hash Brown Breakfast pizza for an additional 20-25 until the eggs are your desired doneness. Top the pizza with chopped scallions if desired and serve immediately.
