Breakfast Poutine

I love breakfast. Like a lot. But not healthy breakfast. Oh no, I like fried eggs and bacon and hashbrowns and white toast covered in butter or waffles covered in fruit and whipped cream and icing sugar or delicious eggs benedict with rich hollandaise sauce. So when my second, Melissa, submitted a breakfast poutine recipe for our staff cookbook I knew it was something I would have to try. And soon!

I made some tweaks and was really happy with the final product. J approved too, though he admitted he would prefer traditional eggs benedict. The only thing I didn't really like about this dish was that is used a lot of dishes.

Breakfast Poutine
  • 4 eggs, scrambled
  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 1 bag home fries/hash browns (I used a 750g bag of McCain's Home Fries)
  • Swiss cheese, shredded (the amount depends on how much cheese you want)
  • Prepared Hollandaise sauce (I used a Knorr packet, but you could make it from scratch if you're really talented!)

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large pan fry up the hashbrowns. (I seasoned mine with a bit of garlic powder, salt and pepper)
  3. Meanwhile begin cooking ground sausage.
  4. Once it's cooked remove the sausage from the pan and cook your scrambled eggs.
  5. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray.
  6. Place hashbrowns in your prepared pan and top with sausage, eggs, and cheese. Pour Hollandaise on top.
  7. Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.


I've never written out a recipe like this before, so please let me know if you have any questions or need any clarification. And huge thanks to Melissa and her family for introducing me to breakfast poutine!
