This breakfast bake is made with hash browns and eggs. The casserole gets loads of flavor from the cheese, bell pepper, and diced ham.


  • 3 cups frozen shredded potatoes
  • 1/3 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 cup diced cooked ham
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 large eggs (beaten)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Thaw potatoes between layers of paper towels to remove excess moisture.

  3. Heat the oven to 425 F/220 C/Gas 7.

  4. Press potatoes into bottom and up sides of an ungreased 9-inch pie plate; drizzle the melted butter over potatoes.

  5. Bake for 25 minutes, or until lightly browned; cool on a rack for 10 minutes.

  6. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 F/177 C/Gas 4.

  7. Combine ham, cheese, and bell pepper; spoon into potato shell.

  8. Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper, blending well; pour egg mixture over ham mixture.

  9. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until set; let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
