My mother's family put together a little cookbook a couple years ago that I have cherished. I love trying the recipes and find that we enjoy most of what we have created! :) This recipe comes from "Recipes to Remember" ...Frampton Seagle Family Favorites.
Recipe: Breakfast Casserole (shared by my Aunt Jill's family)
8 frozen hash brown patties (I used frozen diced hash browns and it turned out great...8 cups)
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup cooked bacon, sausage or ham (we used bacon)
1 cup shredded cheddar
1 cup shredded swiss cheese (we used 2 cup of cheddar because we didn't have swiss)
2 cups milk, cream or half & half
1 tsp salt (could use a bit more salt)
1 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 350. Place hash browns in greased 9x13 baking dish. Pour melted butter over hash browns and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with breakfast meat and cheese. Beat eggs, add milk, salt and pepper and pour mixture over hash browns. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked and eggs are set.
Critiques: Enjoyed by all! ....everyone did agree that it needed a bit more seasoning, but that was added by individual taste :)
