This is like something that I could probably eat for every meal, every single day!

Add 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard and 1/4 teaspoon paprika and it makes it even better... maybe a little black pepper too. Also, I agree with the other guy about the butter. All you need is 1/2 cup.

Does anyone know if I could put this in a crockpot to make it?

I love this recipe! I don't worry about the quantity of hash browns, I just use a bag full. I've also add 2 more eggs, 1/2 cup more milk and a little extra salt. Sometimes I use ham, sometimes sausage links, sometimes a roll of sausage. And whatever cheese I have on hand.

I use tots in the freezer bag and chopped them as hash browns for breakfast sometimes.

Added 2 more eggs like someone in the comments did and it turned out really good. Got good reviews from my family. Thanks! Oh... I also added half a small onion (chopped) which I sprinkled over the crust before the ham. It added a nice flavor.

Can this casserole be made ahead of time and frozen?

For the best results, you should squeeze every last drop of liquid from the thawed potatoes before adding them to the pan. I've been making this for years now and everyone always ravs.

I made it with sauteed peppers & mushrooms. I cut the butter to 1/2 cup and used 5 instead of 4 eggs. Was easy and delicious.

Chop up a small onion and a small green pepper and add one more egg and this is amazing. I might saute some mushrooms and add that to next time too.

Have made this using fresh potatoes as well as with frozen. It's great with mushrooms and onion. We've also made it with chicken. Really great recipe with lots of possibilities. We do use a bit less butter though.

Yes, I made it with fresh potatoes, reduced butter to 1/4 cup (come on, 2/3 cup, really?), added onion and green pepper, used cut up sausage links. DELICIOUS!

Can you make this with fresh potatoes instead of frozen?

Good breakfast casserole. May try with bacon next time. Added diced green peppers and onions to half!

Try it with bacon - cooked and crisped - instead of the ham. Deee-licious!

This is a nice basic recipe! I fatted and nastied it up with sour cream, extra eggs, a can of mushroom soup and way too much cheese, but it was pretty darn good. The ham is a good choice- next time I'll add sauteed mushrooms and green onions too - I like the hash brown crust!

This was extremely good. I exchanged ham with bacon. Good inexpensive dish for a crowd.
