Easy Breakfast Casserole

  • 9 hash brown patties. You could also use any hash browns or even use taters tots! You can precook the hash browns or put them in the casserole frozen! A huge time saver!!
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese, I used colby jack
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked diced bacon, sausage, or ham
  • 9 extra large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk

Spray a 13×9 pan with cooking spray. Arrange the hash brown patties in a single layer.

Sprinkle with cheese and meat. You can also add diced onion, green or red peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, whatever you like!

Whisk eggs with milk and pour over entire casserole. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight or bake right away.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes then uncover and bake an additional 20 minutes. Check for doneness with a knife blade stuck in the middle of the casserole. If the knife comes out clean the casserole is ready!
