I developed this recipe combining potatoes and eggs over 30 years ago as a way to satisfy my family's hearty appetites. The green and red peppers really add a festive flair to the table.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped onion, divided
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3-1/2 cups frozen cubed hash brown potatoes
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided

Directions

In a large skillet, saute 1/2 cup onion in oil until tender. Add the potatoes and half of the salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until potatoes are thawed and softened, about 5 minutes.
Pat potatoes onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. deep dish pie plate. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, saute the peppers, and remaining onion in butter until tender. Spoon over potato crust. Top with cheese. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, milk, paprika, parsley and remaining salt and pepper. Pour over all.
Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.
