Tex-Mex Haystack Instructions:

Tex-Mex Haystack

In a medium bowl mix the sour cream, tomatoes, ½ tsp. of Tex-Mex seasoning, sliced green onions, and cilantro; then put the bowl aside.

Lay the hash browns on a paper towel in a single layer. Press down with another paper towel to remove as much liquid from the potatoes as possible.

In a big bowl blend the hash browns, cheese, other 2 tsp. Tex-Mex seasoning, bread crumbs, and salt.

Heat 3 tbsp. of oil on your Steam Shell Griddle set to medium-high heat. Pour ⅔ c. of the hash brown mixture in the heated oil; make sure you leave a good space between each pouring. Using a spatula, flatten each a little making 6 patties.

Cook for 5-7 minutes or until patties are golden brown and crispy (you may need to add extra oil during cook time). Move each patty to paper towels to drain; then keep them warm.

Heat the rest of the oil on medium heat. One by one, break the eggs onto your griddle; decrease the heat and cook until the yolks begin to thicken and the whites are firm. Turn over each egg if you’d like and cook to preferred doneness.

Assembling: Place each potato patty on a plate and top with one egg then some bacon, salsa, and sour cream. If you wish, some chopped green onions can be sprinkled on top. Enjoy!
