Delicious breakfast recipe- Cheesy Ham Hash Brown Egg Casserole– easy to make when you feed a crowd and great for breakfast or brunch.
Do you have leftover ham and don’t know what to do with it? Or small pieces of cheese that could be put to use?
Here is an idea of a very, but VERY easy casserole that you could make to save the breakfast for a day or two. Maybe you have company over and have to provide breakfast or brunch.
This dish is perfect for events like this, especially around the holidays when we have family coming from around the country staying with us. Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas morning, or Easter, this recipe feeds a crowd and satisfy most palates.
After all, we all need a good breakfast to start the day. This is not a new recipe and I am sure many of you made it a million times before. however, I hope that it is inspiring enough for the ones out there who never made it before.
The original recipe uses bacon, but in my kitchen, we use whatever we have available. Ham, cold cuts, smoked cured meats are perfect to use in this casserole.
We also love cheese, so there is always a piece of this and a piece of that to shred and make a delicious “something”.
This is easy, people! Hash browns, ham, cheese, eggs, and milk! Salt and pepper to taste, as everyone is different. The only difficult part of this recipe is to crack the eggs!!! 🙂
And wait for this beauty to come out of the oven! Oh, I cannot wait!
Just give me a plate and a fork, please! I am so ready!
I made it tonight and tomorrow we do not need to worry about breakfast or lunch! Looks good, right?
If you are like me and love eggs, you might find this recipe also interesting- Crustless quiche– ham, bacon, spinach, your favorite cheese and voila! Breakfast is ready! Low carb too!
Note for the non-Americans who might find this recipe of Cheesy Ham Hash Brown Egg Casserole around– Hash browns are frozen shredded potatoes.
If you cannot find already shredded potatoes at the grocery store, the casserole can be made by shredding raw potatoes, placing them in a clean towel and squeezing the liquid out of them as much as possible.
After that, follow the recipe below and enjoy! I know, it is more complicated, but hey, from my own experience, real, unprocessed potatoes taste better anyway!
