I like to make a batch of these and then cut them and wrap single servings in foil to have handy in the freezer for the week. Much cheaper than the freezer breakfasts from the store and you can basically add/substitute whatever ingredients you want or have handy.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x11-inch casserole dish with cooking spray.

  • Mix hash browns, eggs, ham, Cheddar-Jack cheese, onion powder, salt, and pepper together. Pour mixture into the prepared dish. Shake dish gently from side to side to level out ingredients.

  • Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until top starts to brown, about 40 minutes. Cool before cutting into bars.

Cook's Note:

Bake time is for frozen potatoes. If you are using defrosted hash browns or choose to substitute fresh potatoes, your cook time will be shorter.

These are great to have for the morning commute breakie. I lined the pan with parchment instead of using the oil. They popped out and were super easy to cut into bars. Read More

It had too many potatoes for my taste but I suppose that's ok for most folks. I did increase the eggs to 6 & added a pinch of Lawry's salt but thought it was still a bit bland. Perhaps with crumbled sausage it would have more flavor. Read More

Very good! I have been looking for a recipe I could make at home to replace the store bough frittatas. I didn’t know if I’d like it with the hash browns since I thought it may be too many carbs because I I do count carbs as part of my diet. The changes I made were using the reg hash browns, cheddar cheese, Canadian bacon and putting in some sweet peppers. The end result was very tasty and I will be making them again. My husband even gave them a thumbs up and he usually does not typically like that kind of breakfast food. Read More

LOVED THIS I used Lawry’s salt and no pepper and then I baked using jumbo muffin tins. We ate the first round for lunch with fresh corn on the cob. This is a new favorite! Next time I’m going to try substituting fresh cauliflower for the hash browns to reduce the carbs. Read More

Husband wanted breakfast for dinner. I decided to go with this recipe for the main dish. Wanted to make sure the potatoes weren't soggy, so I put those in the bottom of the pan (with some season salt and pepper) in the oven while I got everything else ready. Meanwhile I beat the eggs and chopped the ham, gathered other ingredients. Sprinkled ham, poured SIX beaten eggs (per many reviews), the seasonings, and sprinkled with cheese. I baked maybe 30 minutes, then moved closer to heat to brown for about 5 minutes. ~~~Husband said he could have eaten all of it. This would be good with different meats or cheeses. I think I'd like to try with sautéed bell peppers and onions. Husband rated 5 stars. I will make again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Made these this morning after thawing hash browns. I sauteed a thick slice of Vidalia onion and 1/2 of a green bell pepper first before adding to mixture. These were golden brown in about 38 min. and tasted great. Read More

I really liked this recipe. I did however make some changes. I noticed that 4 eggs doesn't seem to be enough. Therefore I added 2 more and it came out perfect. Now it does take a bit for it to brown and here is where I slightly changed the procedure. Although the recipe calls for baking it uncovered I did so to set the eggs and then proceeded to broil it for about 5-10minutes and that fixed the problem. Will definitely make this recipe again!
