  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Arrange hash brown patties on the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese and ham over patties.
  3. Beat eggs, milk, salt, and mustard in a large bowl using a whisk; pour over ham. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove foil and bake until edges are golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes more.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute 2 cups bacon or sausage for the ham if desired.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I've made this exact recipe for years. It's always perfect and delicious. The original recipe was designed as a make ahead. That may explain why people had trouble with it not being firm enough....

Great for dinner! Add diced tomatoes and onion for a nice alternative. My husband loved it!

We really enjoyed this, though I did make some significant "tweaks". I halved the recipe for an 8X8 pan, though I found I did still need to use the full amount of eggs/milk to cover the rest of...

This was a good easy recipe. I used leftover ham from Christmas Eve. I had 8 eggs left so I used them all, instead of 7. Who wants one egg leftover! I also didn't have dry mustard so I added bla...

I made only one small change.... BACON!!!!

Didn't have hash brown patties, so I used a bag of country style hash browns with peppers and onions in it, was delicious. Very easy to make. Will definitely make again.

I LOVE recipe. I've been making it for at least 5 years. It's always a huge hit. I've made it with ham, turkey ham, and no meat at all (but I add a bunch of chopped spring onions.) I really ...
