4 tablespoons canola oil

3 cups shredded potatoes

2 eggs 

2 tablespoons flour 

1 cup Pimento Cheese, recipe follows

8 ounces breakfast sausage, cooked and crumbled 

4 eggs, fried sunny-side up 

1/2 cup sliced scallions

Pimento Cheese:

3 cups shredded extra-sharp Cheddar

1/2 cup mayonnaise 

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 

1/4 teaspoon onion powder 

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

Two 4-ounce jars diced pimentos, drained 

1 jalapeno, seeded and minced, optional

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a 10-inch heavy-bottomed pan or cast-iron skillet. Mix the potatoes with the eggs and flour. Place the potatoes in the pan and distribute evenly over the surface, pressing to form a loose patty. Without moving, cook until the underside is crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Using a plate, flip and return the hash browns to the pan cooked-side up. Crisp for another 4 to 5 minutes, and then remove from the pan. Cut into quarters and top each quarter with 1/4 cup Pimento Cheese, 2 ounces breakfast sausage, 1 fried egg, and a scattering of scallions to serve.
