Hashbrown Egg Breakfast Casserole

Thursday, June 24, 2010

I made this breakfast casserole for Father's Day breakfast and it was a hit! Abbott LOVED it... he had seconds at breakfast and then asked for more casserole again at dinner! Justin and Andrew drizzled Cholula hot sauce on theirs (surprise surprise)! I have to admit it's the best breakfast casserole I've ever had, and I like it better than my Hashbrown Quiche!

We had a great Father's Day! We got Justin some clothes (we always go for practical gifts), and Abbott gave Justin a paperweight (a classic Father's Day present... way to go Abbott)! My dad got the best present of all though... retirement! My dad has finally decided to retire (I've been telling him to retire for years), he deserves some much needed rest and relaxation! My dad's decision to retire was even covered by the local newspaper, something very out of the ordinary! He's a special guy though, I don't know how the police department will function without him! I'm sure there are criminals rejoicing everywhere, lol!

Ingredients
1 package (26 ounce) frozen shredded hashbrowns, thawed
1 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 cups (16 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 - 1 teaspoon salt and pepper
8 eggs
2 cups milk

Directions
In a large bowl, combine the hash browns, bacon, 1 and 1/2 cups of cheese, salt, and pepper. Spoon into a greased 13x9 baking dish. In the same large bowl, whisk eggs and milk until smooth; pour over hash brown mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-50 minutes until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.

This looks gtreat Care! Did Abbott actually wait until Father's Day to give Justin his paperweigt? We got it at the hospital gift shop the night Andrew was having surgery. I didn't think he'd make it past that night!

I doubled this recipe and made it for a group breakfast at work. I had four people ask for the recipe. Thank you. It was really delicious and not hard to make. I added ham also so I should have cut back on the salt a bit.

This recipe is yummy! Instead of bacon, I add a sautéed onion and two grated zucchinis. My 1 year old loves it and I'm able to get her to eat some veggies.

Very good recipe!! I made it for a group at my church and it was a hit....there wasn't any left!!! I'm making it again because my family loved it!! I used the southwestern hash browns and it was very flavorful.

Made this today for a football brunch. I did half bacon and half ham. It was a hit!
