  • I need a breakfast casserole recipe without eggs!

    Good Morning everyone!  I've been so busy the last couple of days that I haven't been able to check the boards.  Guess I picked a good time to be busy since the boards were being updated! 

     Now here's what I need from all of you wonderful cooks!  I'm cooking breakfast for our preschool tomorrow (there's only 5 adults to cook for) for one of the other teacher's birthday.  I am wanting to make the casserole type dish ahead of time tonight so all I have to do is stick it in the oven in the morning before school.  The problem is several of us don't care for eggs!  Can you help me?  I was thinking about some sort of hashbrown, bacon, cheesy goodness type recipe.....does it exist?

     THANKS! Maranda

    Breakfast Hash Brown Bacon Casserole


       8               cups  frozen hash brown potatoes -- thawed and divided

                             Black pepper

       2            bunches  green onions -- chopped

       1              pound  bacon -- fried and

                             crumbled -- divided

                             [Reserve 2 or 3 tablespoons of

                             the bacon grease.]

       2               cups  cheddar cheese -- shredded and divided

                             [can use more]

       12            ounces  evaporated milk -- (1 can)

       8              large  eggs

       2          teaspoons  salt

       1           teaspoon  black pepper

       1                cup  parmesan cheese -- shredded


    Can be made the night before, covered with foil and refrigerated until

    ready to cook. If so, add 5 minutes to the initial cooking time.


    Set oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9- x 13-inch baking dish.


    Drain the hash brown potatoes on paper towels to remove any excess liquid

    from them.


    Layer HALF of the hash brown potatoes in the bottom of the dish, then

    sprinkle with black pepper, then HALF of the chopped onion, then HALF of

    the cooked bacon, then half of the cheddar cheese.


    Repeat the layers.


    In a small bowl combine the eggs with evaporated milk and salt and pepper;

    add the reserved bacon grease to the milk and egg mixture and then pour it

    evenly over the potato mixture.


    Cover with foil and bake for 50-55 minutes.


    Uncover and bake for another 10 minutes, sprinkle with shredded cheese and

    bake until the cheese begins to brown. If you like, you can turn the

    broiler on for the last couple of minutes but watch the dish carefully if

    you do.


    Let sit for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.


    In loving memory of Suzy

    Here is one that's very good!

    Potato Bacon Casserole

    4 c. frozen shredded hash browns
    1/2 c. finely chopped onion
    8 oz. bacon, cooked & crumbled
    1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
    1 12 oz. can evaporated milk
    1 t. salt

    Preheat oven to 350º; grease an 8" square baking dish. Layer half the potatoes & sprinkle with half the salt, then add half the onion, bacon & cheese into the dish; repeat layers. Pour evaporated milk over top, cover and bake for 55 minutes. Uncover and bake another 5 minutes; let stand for 10 minutes before serving.


    Also wondered if you could tweak the classic potato casserole recipe by adding  bacon, ham or browned sausage to it?

    2 lb. hash browns, thawed
    8 oz. cream cheese
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    1/4 c. butter or margarine
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 c.  cheddar cheese

    Melt the cream cheese, butter and soup together in a saucepan over low heat. Layer half the potato and onion in a casserole dish, top with half the cream cheese mixture & repeat layers. Top with cheddar cheese and bake at 350º for about an hour to hour & 15 minutes.

    Hope these help!  Lisa

    Maranne -  That sounds really good.  Would it be possible, though, to use fresh hashbrowns??  My son cannot have the frozen variety as most contain either soy or wheat ingredients.  He is unable to have wheat, soy, eggs and I have to watch his peanut intake.  Too much of any of those affects his behavior in a way that mimics ADD/ADHD.  That said, any other egg free/wheat free recipes out their??

    There would be no reason you couldn't use fresh hash browns, hope you like them!  Not sure I have any others, but I will post them if I do.
