I made the tastiest omelets for my family recently. All with the help of pantry stable Hungry Jack Premium Hashbrowns. Pantry stable and hashbrowns might seem like a bit of an oxymoron but they do exist, thanks to Hungry Jack. And they are extremely easy to use and taste the same as regular frozen hashbrowns. You can fry them up and eat them plain or you can use them in some really great recipes like we did when making omelets recently. Check out the Hashbrown Omelets recipe and photos below and then I’ll talk more about the Hashbrowns:
Yield: 5 omelets
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
1 carton (4.2 ounces) Hungry Jack Premium Hasbrown Potatoes
3 Large Eggs
Oil as needed. (Canola, Vegetable) I found that I did need a little oil even in my non-stick skillet.
- Fill hashbrowns carton to fill line on outside of box, with HOTTEST tap water, adding seasonings such as salt, pepper, chili pepper, etc.
- Let stand 12 minutes.
- Drain any excess water in sink.
- Mix hashbrowns and 3 eggs in medium imxing bowl.
- Heat non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat.
- Coat with about 2 teaspoons of oil.
- Add 1/2 cup hashbrown mixture and spread into a 6-inch circle.
- Add choice of filling onto one side. We used tomatoes, jalapeno’s, green onions and cheese for a Southwest style omelet.
- Cook until top is set and bottom is golden brown, about 5 minutes.
- Fold unfilled side over filling and remove from pan.
- Serve warm. Repeat to make 5 omelets.

These Premuim Hashbrown Potatoes are really good! They are great for keeping in the pantry so you have more room in your freezer, taking camping, to a cabin or vacation stay if you’ll have access to a kitchen or kitchenette. They are great for breakfast as hashbrowns or the tasty Hashbrown Omelets mentioned here, in a meatloaf and added to Zucchini Parmesan Cakes. I have a recipe for both of these as well but we created them for a larger group so we used more than one package of hashbrowns and doubled the recipe. My entire family loved the Hashbrown Omelets and asked me when I will fix them again. This is a rare occurrence because my middle children are PICKY! They will rarely eat the same things the rest of us like but they both gobbled up these omelets so I was more than pleased! I’ll be trying the Zucchini Parmesan Cakes next though.
