RECIPES/Family Breakfast
Recently, we had a group over to work on a yard project. I knew my Saturday morning kitchen time was limited that work day, so I prepped this the Friday afternoon before. First thing Saturday morning, the oven went on and an hour later, we had this hearty, scrumptious breakfast.
Good Morning Goodness Casserole
1/2 red pepper, diced
4 green onions (scallions), diced
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
8 frozen hash brown patties
4 cups shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
1 lb. cubed fully cooked ham
7 eggs
1 cup milk (2% works too)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 cup sour cream (low-fat works well too)
8-10 sprigs of fresh chopped chives (fresh chives are loaded with great taste)

Salt and Pepper to taste.
Dice the red pepper and green onions (use both the white and the green of the onion). Heat up a sauté pan. When your pan is hot, add 2 tablespoons of olive or canola oil – however, do not let the oil smoke or burn. Sauté the red pepper, green onions for 5 – 10 minutes on medium heat to soften and gently caramelize – caramelizing brings out the great flavors. Remove from heat.

Arrange the 8 frozen hash brown patties in a single layer in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Sprinkle 2 cups of the cheese, the ham and red pepper and green onion mixture over the hash brown patties.

In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt, pepper and mustard, then pour over the cheese, ham and red pepper and green onion mixture. Sprinkle the other 2 cups of cheese over the egg/milk mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Edges should be golden brown and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Place 1 tablespoon of sour cream on a plated portion, sprinkle with the chopped chives and serve.

Servings: 8-10
