1 tablespoon butter or oil
1/2 cup hash brown potatoes
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
pinch of paprika
dash salt
dash pepper
1 egg

Add potatoes, onion powder and 1 tablespoon of butter or oil in a well-greased pie iron. Cook until potatoes begin to brown.

Remove from fire and open cooker. Using a fork, form a “nest” into the center of the potatoes.

It is done when the potatoes look brown and the egg looks cooked.

Judge Comments:

This breakfast appealed greatly to one of the judges, but not so much to the others. Ketchup was needed for flavor and overall was kind of bland, It has potential but it needs work. I bet you can guess this wasn’t a winner in the Mountain Pie Contest.
