Hash Brown Egg Bake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min.
Wish I'd read all the comments and suggestions beforehand ... It's tasty but definitely dry vs what I thought it would be. Some onion and garlic powder would have helped... And a little smoked paprika or cayenne (and I cannot tolerate much spiciness) would've helped. Onions and garlic fried with the bacon would be great too. But I often like to make the recipe as is initially... I did use extra cheddar and Applewood smoked bacon though...
Glad I read the comments ahead of time! I used 8 cups of potatoes, 2 cups of cheese, 10 eggs, and equal parts heavy cream and milk (1 cup of each). I also added 1 Tbsp of garlic powder and chopped dried onions to the potatoes, along with 1/2 Tbsp of salt and pepper and 1 tsp of paprika. Extremely simple and delicious!
My husband made this for me one weekend. We prefer ham rather than bacon. He used chopped ham. It was super easy for him to make and was rather tasty. We also like the potatoes o'brien with onions and peppers already in it. I think you could add whatever meat you want and any seasonings you want too.
I made this for a get-together and was very disappointed in it. It was very bland to the point that even a bit of salt didn't help. IF I ever make it again, I will add onions, peppers and anything else that will bring this out of a plate of boredom. I usually love the Taste of Home recipes but this was just too much.
This is a family get together favorite!
The only time consuming part of the recipe (besides cooking time) is frying the bacon. Took about 90 minutes to make and bake. It did need a lot more seasoning. Increase the salt next time and add pepper or other favorite seasonings would help. I agree to cut down on the potatoes as an option, but another option it to increase the eggs-perhaps add 2 more eggs.
This is a very easy recipe to make, although I did add some changes to it. Instead of 30 ounces of hash browns I used 20 ounces. I also reduced the amount of milk and added sausage and onions. It turned out pretty good. You just need to adjust the ingredients.
I should've read the reviews before I made it. I agree with many others who said it was too bland and had too many potatoes. I doubled the cheese but didn't add anything else. If I ever make it again, I will add peppers and onion, as well as sausage, more milk and more eggs. I will also use less potatoes. It's hard to believe there was a pound of bacon in it. My dad said all he could taste as potatoes. The egg gets lost in all the potatoes.
Excellent! I didn't think it was blah at all, though I did add extra cheddar cheese to it (we love cheese). My son loves it, and it's perfect for him to reheat some for breakfast every morning before school.
