Wake-Up Casserole

We loved it! After reading reviews I added a tablespoon of biscuit mix so it would firm up better. I learned this trick from a quiche recipe and it works great. Will make again maybe adding onions and other veggies. Would make for any meal not just breakfast. Thanks for this great recipe!

I’ve made this exact recipe for years. It’s always perfect and delicious. The original recipe was designed as a make ahead. That may explain why people had trouble with it not being firm enough. If you make the night before and refrigerate then bake in the morning, covered with foil, for and hour, remove foil and bake another 15-20min, it will be perfect

We really enjoyed this, though I did make some significant “tweaks”. I halved the recipe for an 8X8 pan, though I found I did still need to use the full amount of eggs/milk to cover the rest of the ingredients. I added diced green pepper and onion, so they may have accounted for the need for more egg mixture. I kept the spices the same as the full recipe and added about 1/8tsp white pepper. While we did enjoy this, I think i’d prefer everything mixed together, using hash browned potatoes in place of the frozen prepared patties. Regardless, a great jumping off point to customize to YOUR preference. THANKS for the recipe!

8 frozen hash brown patties
4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 pound cooked ham, cut into cubes
7 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
Arrange hash brown patties on the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese and ham over patties.
Beat eggs, milk, salt, and mustard in a large bowl using a whisk; pour over ham. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove foil and bake until edges are golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes more.
