Hash Brown Egg Dish Recipe

Hash Brown Egg Dish Recipe

I cook the bacon and chop up the vegetables for this hearty casserole the night before, so it only takes a few minutes to finish in the morning. When we have overnight guests, I serve it for breakfast along with blueberry muffins. My family also thinks it's good for dinner. -Diann Sivley, Signal Mountain, Iowa
