This was great. I made a few modifications. I had to skip the green pepper as my family will not eat them so I doubled the mushrooms. I put some cheese on top of the hash brown crust and then poured in the mixture to which I had added a little white cheddar and sharp cheddar plus a little ground red pepper and some Bayou Blast to give it a tad of a kick. I let this cook for about 25 minutes then added a cup of mixed cheeses to the top. I used sharp cheddar, mild cheddar, white cheddar and parmesan (these were the cheeses I had) and it was great. My family rated it an A plus and if you want to have leftovers, you better double it. I think this could be made with any meat and any cheese. Next time when it is just the adults I am going to try ham, jalapenos, onions, green peppers and maybe some sausage or bacon. It is a recipe that can be mixed and matched easily to suit any families tastes from the youngest to the oldest. Great comfort food! Read More

We had breakfast for dinner tonight and this was a big hit. I used a larger cast iron pan so I ended up doubling most of the ingredients except the hash browns, 4 cups was plenty to cover the bottom of my pan. I used 6 eggs and about 3/4 cup milk. For the ham, I chopped up about 6 slices of Canadian bacon I had on hand. For the boys sake I omitted the mushrooms but I think they'd be very good in this dish. I also added some chopped chives and abour 1/4 shredded TJ's Italian blend cheese. You could really change this up with different veggies and cheeses. I think asparagus or broccoli florets would be great. I had to cook just a bit longer, maybe 35 minutes total. Yummy! Read More

This is fantastic! The hash brown crust is much easier than & and a good twist on the traditional pie crust. I will be throwing this one in the mix of easy dinners menus. Read More

My family loved this recipe...tastes just like the egg bake we love to make in the dutch oven when we go camping. We omitted the green peppers (personal taste) but otherwise followed the recipe to a 'T'. Thank you for a good quick breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner...works for it all! Read More

This was very good. I made as written except minus the veggies as my family wouldn't eat them. I did have to extend the cooking time approximately 10-15 minutes to get a firm center. Read More

This was very good. But, I think the next time I make it I will use less hash browns for the pan that I have. Four cups was a bit too thick for my liking in a deep 9" pie plate. Also, I know my oven cooks a bit slow but I had to cook this an extra 12 minutes or so. Still, over all, a very good recipe. I got good reviews when I served it. Thank you for posting. Read More
