This breakfast skillet with eggs and hash browns is reminiscent of the hashbrown bowl at Waffle House. It's filling and tastes decadent, but is still a pretty low-calorie breakfast. Be sure to use a large skillet because you need the surface area to get the potatoes crispy (overcrowding your skillet will just steam them).

  • Add 1 tablespoon of the canola oil to drippings in skillet; increase heat to medium-high. Add potatoes in a single layer; cook, covered, undisturbed, until potatoes are crisped on bottoms, about 7 minutes. Uncover; stir potatoes, and stir in remaining 1 tablespoon canola oil. Cook, covered, until potatoes are well browned, about 5 minutes.

  • Uncover skillet; create 4 wells in potatoes using back of a spoon. Crack 1 egg into each well. Sprinkle entire skillet with salt and pepper. Sprinkle potatoes with cheese, being careful not to cover eggs with cheese. Cook over medium-high, covered, until cheese is melted and egg whites are set but yolks are still mostly runny, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 2 minutes. Sprinkle skillet with scallions and cooked bacon; drizzle with hot sauce.
