I love making breakfast casseroles. Not only are they easy to make, I like to freeze them and heat them up anytime I feel like it. There are so many to choose from, but I think this one is my favorite, especially when I have leftover ham. It has everything I love for breakfast, fluffy scrambled eggs, crispy hash browns, ham and lots of cheese. Try it, you’ll start making breakfast casseroles more often!
Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole
1 cup diced or cubed ham
1 (30-32oz) bag frozen shredded hash browns
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
2 cups whole milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 casserole dish with butter or
spray with non-stick spray.
In a large skillet, fry the frozen hash browns until lightly crisp and golden.
Pour hash browns into casserole dish and top with ham and ¾ cup of each
Whisk together eggs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and milk.
Pour over hash brown mixture. Top with remaining ¼ cup of each cheese.
You can refrigerate at this point until ready to bake or bake immediately at
350 degrees for about 40-45 minutes or until eggs are set in the middle.
