I grew up in the South eating at Waffle House for breakfast regularly, so I am a big fan of short order cooking on a griddle. I came across a YouTube video from True North Cafe in 2022 where I learned of the concept of a Hash Brown Omelette. I was very inspired by this breakfast creation that I considered sort of a reverse omelette.
This Hash Brown Omelette cooked on the griddle with eggs, cheese onions & peppers is a very filling and hearty recipe and also a great hangover cure! Feel free to make this recipe our own and load it up with whatever sort of toppings you love!

- 1 lb shredded potatoes
- 6 eggs, beaten
- 8 oz ham, cooked and cubed (sub bacon, sausage or chorizo)
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 bell pepper, sliced and chopped
- 4 slices American Cheese
- Meat Church Holy Cow (sub Holy Voodoo or Season Salt)
- 1 T, sour cream for garnish and serving

Prepare your griddle on medium heat
Prepare your griddle or cast iron pan at medium heat. In this video we used a Traeger Flatrock Griddle.
Prepare your omelette
Once the griddle has arrived at medium heat, lay down butter or cooking oil. When the butter is melter, pour the shredded potatoes over the butter. Season with Holy Cow and toss the hash browns a couple times over 3-4 minutes.
While the potatoes are cooking lay down more butter for the onions and peppers. Sauté the onions and peppers.
Lay the cooked ham down on the griddle and re-warm it while trying to get come char on the outside.
Form the hash browns into a rectangle. Continue to cook until they are 95% cooked.
Pour the eggs into the middle of the hash browns. Using a spatula, evenly spread the eggs all over the hash browns as seen in this video. Cook for a couple minutes.
Visually determine the middle of the rectangle so you can form 2 omelettes. Place the 4 slices of cheese on each side of the rectangle. 2 for each omelette.
Cover the omelette evenly with onions, peppers and ham.
Using the spatula, cut the hash brown rectangle in half. Fold each hash brown rectangle over to create an omelette as seen in this video.
Remove the omelettes from the griddle. Optionally garnish with a dollop of sour cream and more sautéed peppers and onions. Enjoy!
