Wasatch Mountain Man Skillet


August 24, 2018

Good and hearty breakfast in a stovetop supper. Rustic meat and potatoes, greens, egg, and creamy French Mornay sauce to top. Inspired by the Little America coffee shop in Salt Lake City and paying tribute to the western mountain men, and immigrants.

  • Yields: 5-6 servings


3 tablespoons butter

4 cups frozen Southern Style hashbrown potatoes

1 ½-2 cups cooked cubed corned beef or ham

8-10 cups fresh baby spinach

5-6 eggs

Salt and pepper, to taste

Garnish of choice, tomatoes, chives, fruit, etc

Mornay Sauce


Adjust portions to fit pan size and taste preference.

NOTE: Prepare Mornay sauce while hash is cooking.

Melt butter until hot and bubbly over medium to medium high heat in a large deep skillet or dutch oven. Add potatoes (should be a single layer or close to a single layer of potatoes); season to taste. Cook 6-7 minutes, turn.

Add meat over potatoes; pile spinach on top of meat and sprinkle with a touch of water (no more than about 1-teaspoon is needed); cover and partially wilt spinach 1-2 minutes. Make small hollows or nests in the spinach and gently add 1 egg to a hollow. Season to taste, cover, reduce heat to medium to medium-low; cook 7-8 minutes or until spinach is wilted, and egg whites are completely cooked (egg yolks cooked to preference).

Remove hash from heat, using a spoon cut into servings and dish onto individual plates. Spoon sauce over top, garnish and enjoy
