WAYNE CAMICK'S NOT-A-PIZZA

 

  • Cooking Time: 25 mins
  • Servings: 6-8
  • Preparation Time: 30-45 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 - 1.5 lbs of shredded potatoes ( frozen hash browns for those in a rush )
  • 1 lrg onion shredded
  • 6 oz. cheddar or any hard cheese.
  • 1 tblsp butter
  • 1 tblsp sour cream or plain yogurt
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/3 cup of bacon bits or sausage medallions as desired.
  • 1/3 cup chopped plum tomatoes
  • 1 bell pepper as desired,..very colorful addition
  • 6 large eggs

Directions

  • use a 12 inch cast iron skillet for best results. An aluminum foil deep dish pie pan will also work.
  • pre heat oven to 375
  • scramble 6 eggs and sour cream and set aside.
  • shred potatoes and 1/2 of the lrg onion and mix together. The onion's acid will stop the potatoes from turning brown ( oxidisation)
  • add salt and pepper and garlic to taste.
  • shred all of the cheese and set aside.
  • chop all other ingredients as you would for topping a pizza and set aside.
  • warm the skillet for a minute.
  • remove the skillet and coat the bottom and sides with a butter swish.
  • layer the shredded potatoes in as you would a pie crust using a fork to form the sides into a deep dish form.
  • place the potatoe base in the oven to bake for 7-10 mins until golden brown on top.
  • remove the deep dish potatoe base from the oven
  • sprinkle a thick layer of cheese on top of the potatoe base. This acts to seal the potatoes from the eggs.
  • place the skillet back in the oven briefly to melt the cheese. Remove when melted
  • pour the scrambled eggs into the deep dish potatoe base
  • layer on top all of the ingredients you would put on your pizza,..bacon, sausage, peppers, onions , mushrooms ,..but save the cheese for last.
  • put the entire dish back in the oven for 3-5 mins and then turn the oven off and walk away for 15 mins while the eggs slow cook.
  • sprinkle on shredded cheese as desired and broil for 1-2 mins for that crispy cheesy look and taste.
  • cool and serve as you would a pizza,.. a breakfast tradition the Camick Family would like to share with the world.

Notes

This is a creation that started out as a cooking lesson for my boys on cold Sat mornings in Canada.

It looks like a Pizza and you can top it off with whatever you like on your pizza,..but it's ,...Not-A-Pizza. It's a breakfast meal that goes like this,..and it can be made as a Vegitarian,..but not vegan,..dish.
