Here is how to make this fabulous Bacon, Eggs, and Cheese Breakfast Casserole. You can start this the night before, and put it in the oven for a tasty and terrific start to your day!


4 cups Hot water
5 1/5 oz. package dried hash brown potatoes
5 eggs, well beaten
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese; (You may substitute a different kind of cheese, if you like.)
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon Black Pepper; ground
1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
1 Green onion; chopped
6 slices of bacon; cooked, drained, and crumbled
cooking; oil spray

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



In a large bowl, place the entire 5.2 oz. hash brown mixture. Pour 4 cups hot water over the hash browns, and let stand for 10 minutes. Drain, and pat off any extra moisture with a paper towel. In a large bowl, combine 5 well-beaten eggs, 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese, ? cup cottage cheese, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper, 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce, and 1 chopped green onion. Add drained hash browns, and mix thoroughly. Pour mixture into a deep-dish pie plate that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Sprinkle with crumbs from 6 slices of cooked bacon and a dash of paprika. Cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate at least 3 hours (or overnight). Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until mixture is set. (You can check for doneness by inserting a clean knife in the center, and it should come out clean.) Cut into wedges, and serve immediately. This breakfast goes well with cherry tomato halves or sliced tomatoes. I also served mine with freshly made hot cocoa. Delish!

Great weeknight dinner. I substituted two medium, peeled, grated potatoes for the water and dried hash browns. Baked it for 10 additional minutes. My husband loved it.

Super delicious, I put in sharp cheese instead of Swiss and subtracted the onions since the husband doesn't like them. It was delectable !!
