Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole w/ Bacon

(7 servings)

  • 1/2 pound bacon - sliced
  • 1/2 cup onion - chopped
  • 1/2 cup green pepper - chopped
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 16-ounce package frozen hash brown potatoes - thawed
  • 1 cup (about 4 ounces) Cheddar cheese - shredded
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
I made this for a recent family brunch and it got rave reviews. I prepped everything the night before, refrigerated it and just popped it in the oven an hour before brunch. The casserole had lots of flavor and the hash browns gave it a hearty consistency that left everyone satisfied without additional side dishes or toast. I adjusted the recipe to suit an 11 x 8-inch baking dish buy reducing the eggs to 10 and milk to 1/2 cup. If desired, you can use a different kind of cheese. I used half Cheddar and half Pepper Jack. I wouldn't hesitate to make this again, especially if I needed to do most of my cooking in advance. (This recipe was submitted in 2002. It was tested and photographed in May 2015.)
