Mushroom-Artichoke Brunch Bake
While the potatoes are baking the rest of the prep can be done...there's not much slicing or measuring. While this makes a pretty vegetarian egg bake, you can also add a layer of little smoked sausages cut lengthwise in half over the artichokes if you want a more substantial meal.—Suzanne Francis, Marysville, Washington
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min.
- 3 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 can (14 ounces) water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and quartered
- 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 12 large eggs
- 1-3/4 cups 2% milk
- 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
- Preheat oven to 350°. Place potatoes in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish; drizzle with 1 tablespoon butter and sprinkle with salt. Bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Meanwhile, in a small skillet, saute mushrooms in remaining butter until tender. Place artichokes on paper towels; pat dry. Sprinkle mushrooms, artichokes and cheese over the potatoes. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and green chilies; pour over cheese.
