Soft eggs nestled into a bed of crispy hash browns and surrounded by succulent chunks of ham: If this sounds like a breakfast you could get behind—meet your weekend plan! This recipe is all about the perfectly cooked hash browns—crispy on the outside (but not overdone) and creamy on the inside (but not underdone)—which form the base of this all-in-one meal. To pull it off, you’ll need your sheet pan—spreading out your hash browns is the key to cooking them perfectly—and a couple of no-nonsense strategies. Tossing hash browns with oil and aromatics ups their flavor and ensures they brown nicely. Stirring halfway through the bake time helps them to bake evenly and gives you the opportunity to add the ham. Because adding ingredients gradually is the key to successful sheet-pan cooking, you’ll add the quick-cooking eggs at the last minute. When everything is cooked up just right and you only have one pan to wash, you’ll see why we created this sheet-pan hash recipe. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Hash browns can be tricky to cook right. The key here is using preshredded refrigerated hash browns and a sheet pan. Spreading them across the pan allows them to crisp up beautifully.
  • Crack eggs into a ramekin or small bowl before adding to the sheet pan to avoid egg shells and broken yolks.
  • Skip the prediced ham, and cut your own for this recipe. This is also a great way to use up leftover holiday ham. Be sure to trim off any overly browned or super fatty pieces.
