How To Make A Wake-Up Casserole
Place hash brown patties in a single layer in a greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese and ham. In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, and salt. Pour over ham. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Uncover: bake 15 minutes longer or until edges are golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cooking Note From Mr Breakfast:
Instead of hash brown patties, I used Ore Ida Crispy Crowns which are about the same thickness as hash brown patties but are shaped like coins. I found that they worked great and you could really cover the the bottom of the casserole dish evenly with them.
This casserole is just as good as reheated leftovers. Just microwave individual servings for about 30 seconds.
This can be prepared the night before. Simply assemble the casserole, cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. Preheat oven when you wake up and bake according to directions.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank dixie_tn1 for this recipe.

Hi. I have made this several times, sometimes using sausage instead of ham. It always is a hit! Thanks!

I used potato rounds instead of patties and some corn, great spur of the moment recipe. Kids loved it!

I made this -- with a few of my own embellishments -- for my accounting department co-workers. I used a bit less cheese, added some sausage, green and red peppers, and onions. Everyone is raving about it, enjoying second servings, and asking for the recipe! Thanks for helping me to shine as a cook (which I am not!).
