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
