Whipped Cream Cheese, Avocado, and a Fried Egg Yolk

Your new favorite brunch will be this whipped cream cheese and fried egg yolk on top of a hashbrown.

The Deets

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again—a classic frozen hash brown baked and browned in a pan just hits different 👌🏼👌🏼. This is a really fun way to level it up: whipped cream cheese and hot sauce, avocado, and a fried egg yolk. Making a fried egg yolk isn’t too challenging; it just requires a little time. You’ll coat it in breadcrumbs and then freeze it so the yolk doesn’t break. Once frozen, add it to a fry oil pain for 1-2 minutes. Meanwhile, toast up that hashbrown — feel free to get it from any supermarket. Then you’ll get to your whipped cheese; you can use any brand for this, like, Philadelphia. You’re going to doctor it up a little bit and add some scallions and hot sauce. Add a dollop and ayer that onto your hashbrown and top with the fried egg yolk! This is so good, I cannot wait to make it again. Serve this up breakfast for the whole fam, or just treat yourself to this for brunch.

  • 1 hash brown homemade or store bought
  • Whipped cream cheese
  • Hot sauce
  • Scallions sliced
  • Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg per toast
  • Fry oil
  • Half an avocado


  • Add breadcrumbs to a shallow bowl. Carefully, separate egg yolk from the whites. Using your spoon create a well in the breadcrumbs and add your yolks to the well. Cover with breadcrumbs and freeze for 2 hours (you can freeze for longer if you want but at least 2 hours).
  • When eggs are ready, add fry oil to a pan and fry yolks for about 1-2 min. Careful not to overcook. Coat bread in olive oil and cook for 2-3 min per side.
  • Cook hash brown according to package and then give it a quick fry in a skillet for 1-2 min per side for a little extra crisp.
  • Combine cream cheese, hot sauce and scallions in a bowl until smooth and combined. Add to top of hash brown. Slice avocado and add, followed by egg yolk. Enjoy!
