Cheesy Breakfast Cake
"This is a recipe inspired by a great little restaurant in a town called Owen Sound, Ontario Canada: Dragonfly Cafe. I switched up some of the ingredients and of course, have no idea the exact ingredients that they use. This is a great breakfast for entertaining guests, a weekend breakfast meal or if you have the time, before you get going for your day on a weekday. Very delicious. I call it Cake because it is layered :)"

I made this using gluten free sausage and vegan cheese shreds and it turned out perfectly. I added the cooked sausage to the potatoes and then added the cheese. A delicious breakfast or lunch recipe!!!.
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups hash brown potatoes (large, diced - home made)
- 2 tablespoons oil (virgin olive oil)
- 1 cup cheese, grated (I used 3 blends: Cheddar, Mozzarella, Monterey Jack)
- German Salami (3 slices, cut up - you can substitute with sausage, we just did not have any this morning)
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon Herbes de Provence
- Optional Ingredients
- (red and green peppers, onion, mushrooms - all sauteed)
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
In a large skillet pour the olive oil in the pan over middle-high heat.
Peel the large potato and cut into dices. This is the homefries.
Put into the skillet.
Pour all the seasoning on top of the potatoes. Stir often.
When potatoes are close to being done, add the salami and stir. If you want, you can add onions, red pepper and mushrooms for more taste although I did not and it was still quite tasty.
Fry the eggs easy over style to the point of almost making the yoke hard. Be sure not to cook the yoke too long, but do not allow to be too runny either.
Set eggs aside, off the heat.
When the homefries (potatoes) are cooked thoroughly, should be a golden crisp colour, remove from pan and put into an individual casserole dish.
Put in the cheese blend.
Put in oven - broil for a few minutes.
When the cheese is melted, remove from oven.
Place egg on top.
Serve and enjoy!
