Cheesy Potato and Sharp Cheddar Hash


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 5 cups shredded frozen hash brown potatoes

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste

  • 1 cup extra-sharp white Cheddar crumbles

Add potatoes, season with salt and pepper and cook 20 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown and crispy. Season with a little freshly grated nutmeg, to taste, and add cheese.
