  • Looking for breakfast casserole with au gratin potatoes

    I saw a recipe for this somewhere but didn't copy it down. Now I have the potatoes but no recipe. Does anyone remember seeing anything like this on this site or did I see it somewhere else? (definite memory problems!) Thanks!

    Down-on-the-Farm Breakfast Recipe

    I've been making this dish for over 15 years, but it's still my husband's favorite and the one that he requests most often. I'm not complaining, though. It's easy to prepare, and I love the combination of flavors as much as he does!

     

    • 6 Servings
    • Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min.

    Ingredients

    • 8 bacon strips, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
    • 1 package (5-1/4 ounces) au gratin potatoes mix
    • 2-1/4 cups boiling water
    • 2/3 cup milk
    • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
    • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 6 eggs
    • Dash pepper
    • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

    Directions

    • Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Drain, reserving 2 cups drippings in the skillet with the bacon. Stir in contents of au gratin potato mix, water, milk green pepper, onion and thyme. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
    • Transfer to an ungreased 2-qt. baking dish. Make six indentations in potato with a spoon. Break eggs into indentations. Sprinkle with pepper. Cover and bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until eggs reach desired doneness. Sprinkle with cheese. Yield: 6 servings.
