  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 Yukon gold potato cut into a very small dice
  • generous pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup minced yellow onion
  • 1 cup finely diced peppers; I used a mix of jalapeño's, pasilla’s, and bell pepper’s
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro to garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat in a 10-inch non-stick frying pan. Add the potatoes and a generous pinch of salt to season. Toss the potatoes in the oil to coat then spread into an even layer and let cook for 6 minutes. Use a spatula to turn the hash browns over then continue to cook for another 8 minutes or until golden and crispy. Once done remove from the pan to a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Place the frying pan back over medium-high heat. Drizzle in the remaining tablespoon of olive oil then add the onion, peppers, and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally for 6-8 minutes until the vegetables are cooked through and tender.
  3. Meanwhile, beat the eggs and milk together in a mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper. When the vegetables are cooked through add the eggs to the skillet, dollop with cream cheese, and sprinkle the cheddar over the top. Cook until the eggs are just set on the bottom and around edges, about 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer to the oven under the broiler until the cheese is browned and eggs are completely set. about 5-8 minutes depending on how hot your broiler is and how close the pan is to the heating element.
  5. Garnish with the crispy potatoes and cilantro. Serve immediately.
