I was looking for a fast and easy dinner idea and I stumbled upon Our Best Bites Easy Potato and Bacon Breakfast Casserole. I was so happy that this recipe was so simple and it was full of flavor. Not only that but you could add so many things to this to make all kinds of variations. Fresh spinach layered in or chopped tomatoes. This would also be a great recipe for a brunch or any other breakfast gathering. We will defiantly make this again in our house.
Easy Potato and Bacon Breakfast Casserole
~ 4 cups southern/country- style hash browns (cubes), completely thawed (if they’re not thawed, they won’t cook correctly)
~ 1 package bacon
~ 1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
~ 1 1/2 cup jack cheese
~ 4 green onions, chopped
~ 3 eggs
~ 1 cup milk
~ 1/2 tsp. salt
~ about 10 turns freshly ground pepper
1. About 3 or so hours before you begin make sure to set out your 4 cups of hash browns so they can thaw out.
2. Cook bacon. While bacon is cooking, place the potatoes in a 9 x 13 baking dish or a deep-dish 9” pie plate. Mix the cheeses together and sprinkle it over the potatoes. When the bacon is done cooking, drain it on a paper towel. If you want sauté up the green onions in a little bit of the bacon grease and then spread the onions over the cheese mixture. Then sprinkle everything with crumbled bacon.
3. Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the potato mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for 7-8 hours.
4. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350o F. Bake, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly but not brown. Allow to stand for 15 minutes before cutting.
