Old skool week- make ahead brunch bake

Here is one of my favorite recipes.

I couldn't even begin to count how many times I have made it.
The best part is you assemble it the night before and
then just stick it in the oven in the morning.

Perfect for when you need to bring a dish to MOPS.

As with nearly all of the good things I make it is from
my amazing friend Richelle.

Richelle... you REALLY need to start a food blog.
Seriously.

Make Ahead Breakfast Bake
What you will need:
9 eggs
Package of hashbrowns (any kind you like, rectangles, shredded or tater tots)
1 can evaporated milk
Add ins of your choosing:
I usually make a girly version with
artichoke hearts, feta and sun-dried tomatoes,
and a manly version with
a pound of cooked crispy bacon or sausage.
Cheddar cheese
Whisk together the eggs and evaporated milk.
Layer the hash browns in 9 x 13 dish.
Pour egg/ milk mixture over hash browns.
Scatter the add ins on top.
Cover with foil and store in fridge overnight.
In the morning, remove foil, cover with cheddar cheese.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Believe me, the pan will come home scraped clean.
It is that good.

  6. I make this exact casserole, except for the hashbrowns. I'll have to try adding them:) We make a version with ground sausage, cheddar cheese and canned green chilies...it's got me hungry just thinking about it!

  8. I was just about to ask, what could I substitute for the hashbrowns...they look like the main(base) ingredient, (I've not seen them in South African stores), but one of these comments says they actually omit them altogether!?......I LOVE potato, so I will go on a hunt for some hashbrowns later this morning. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  10. Thank you for doing BRUNCH! I have no brunch recipes and LOVE to host brunches. Usually I serve up scones or muffins, but I can't wait to try your hot casserole. I am a little challenged in the kitchen, so I appreciate when cooks share their favorite recipes :)

  12. Mama, you are speaking my language with this!!

    Potatoes. Eggs. Cheese. *swoon*
    Add in a delicious pork product like bacon or sausage and I might die from delight.

  13. I have a similar one I make with cottage cheese and green chilis-- I never thought to add hash browns. Yum! And the fact that you can make these the night before is fantastic.

  14. I'm always looking for stuff to bring to MOPS! thanks! This is a much different version than the typical "cheesy hashbrown casserole" that us Southerners typically serve. I'm so excited to try it!

  18. I'm so glad you shared this! I was just searching for a recipe for my MOMS group breakfast! Yay!

  19. Oh, yea! This does look like a yummy one to try. The last "make ahead" breakfast casserole I attempted for MOPS did not turn out so well... lets just say I'm glad my little one REALLY likes eggs so I didn't have to throw a complete dish away! Hope you are settling in well from your move- my family is doing the same.
