In a greased, 4qt, glass casserole dish, spread frozen potatoes evenly. Pour/brush melted butter over the frozen potatoes and bake at 475° for 25 minutes.
While potatoes are baking, dice ham and set to the side. Next, combines eggs, milk, and salt in a separate mixing bowl, and beat thoroughly.
Once potatoes are done baking, turn the oven down to 350°, spread the 1 or 2 cans of green chiles, layer the ham next, and finally spread the cheese so that it evenly covers the other ingredients. Lastly, you will pour the egg mixture over the layered casserole titling the casserole back and fourth a couple times to ensure the egg mixture settles evenly.
Bake at 350° for approximately 35 minutes.
For a slightly healthier twist use half fresh eggs and half egg substitutes. You can't taste the difference in this ingredient rich recipe. Also, Hatch brand green chiles come in different heats so you can customize how hot your casserole turns out. This dish is also delicious served with salsa.
