Ingredients

  • 1 package (20 oz.) shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 1 lb. diced ham
  • 1 package (14 oz.) chopped frozen onion and bell pepper blend, thawed and drained well

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 9"x13" baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a medium skillet over medium heat add the hash browns. Cook, stirring constantly, until the potatoes are dry, about 6 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • Spread the hash browns into the bottom of the baking dish. Layer the ham, diced vegetables, and cheese. In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs and half and half. Pour the egg mixture over the hash browns. Cover with foil.
  • Bake for 50 minutes, remove the foil, and return to the oven for 10 minutes more, or until the casserole is lightly browned and bubbling. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
