4-5 waxy potatoes (red, Yukon gold, etc) sliced thinly
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 lb Hipwell Ranch sausage or bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
1 onion, finely diced
1 bell pepper, finely diced
1 cup chopped Groves Country Mushrooms
1/2 brick Yaya’s Halloumi cut in 1/4 inch cubes
8 eggs
1 tbsp Wagner’s Idaho mustard


  • Preheat oven to 400f

  • Rinse and dry the potato slices, a salad spinner is really helpful here. Toss with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  • Layer potatoes into baking dish so that no gaps remain.

  • Bake, uncovered for approximately 20 minutes. Until the edges start to crisp and turn golden.

  • While the crust is baking, brown the meat and drain off all but 1-2 tbsp of the fat.

  • Add veggies to the meat and saute until translucent.

  • Scramble the egg and mustard. Add the egg to the veggies and meat and thoroughly combine off the heat.

  • Stir in about half the halloumi, then dump into the prepared potato crust and place back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes until the egg is just set.
