Hashbrown Crusted Breakfast Casserole

Sometimes I get tired of the same old things for breakfast: a banana, yogurt, raspberries, strawberries, a granola bar, etc. So I wanted to find something I could make ahead of time and have ready so I could grab & go while heading out the door to work. Now it doesn’t have to be something to eat on the go, because I like sitting at my desk to eat. I’m not a fan of walking down the street eating a breakfast burrito. If that’s your thing, that’s fine! It’s just not how I roll.

So I was browsing online and I came across a Hashbrown Crusted Brunch Casserole from Just A Pinch. I thought it looked pretty good so I figured I’d give it a try. I wanted to change a few things in it though, so what I put below includes my changes. You can see the original recipe here.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 package Simply Potatoes Shredded Hashbrowns
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 Shallots, chopped
  • 1 cup Bacon
  • 3 Scallions, diced
  • 1 cup New York Sharp Cheddar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • Salt & Pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix the melted butter, hashbrowns, shallots,  salt and pepper.
Press into a 8 x 8 greased pan.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until potatoes start to brown.
Remove from oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees.
Top with Bacon and Scallions. Top with Shredded Cheddar Cheese.

Whisk the eggs, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and freshly cracked pepper. Pour over the top.


Bake at 350 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes until top is golden.

Okay, I must say this was very delicious! Sometimes I’m kinda leery about reheating eggs, but this tastes very good reheated in the microwave. I’d definitely make this again and try some different things inside. I think the next time I make it I am going to put mushrooms, onions and green peppers in place of the bacon. I think Canadian Bacon would taste great as well. So I’ll say this is a winner, and the recipe will definitely get filed away to be made again!
