Perfect for brunch or holidays, this Bacon Hash Brown Casserole is great for making the day ahead. Just pop it into the oven the next day and smell the delicious aroma fill your kitchen. Aside from your coffee, everything’s in there; hash browns, cheese, ham, bacon, green onions, and eggs. Maybe a little fresh fruit on the side, and breakfast is ready.
Make it a Day Ahead
Sure, you can bake it right away, but sometimes it’s nice to have something made in advance. Holidays are coming up and we’ll all be busy, plus it’s football season; nice to have breakfast made already so you can watch the early game. Shown below in a 9 x 9, layer the cheese over the hash browns. The next layer includes the ham, bacon, and green onions. The last picture shows the eggs, evaporated milk, salt and pepper, which was mixed in a separate bowl and then poured on top. Cover the dish and put into the refrigerator until you want to bake it.
Baking the Bacon Hash Brown Casserole
If you made this casserole ahead, remove it from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before you bake it. Baking this casserole the next day was so great, because my kitchen was already clean, and yet here was this completely prepared casserole ready for the oven. Bake it uncovered for 55-60 minutes. Easy peasy.
Serve this Bacon Hash Brown Casserole with hot sauce or ketchup, although I prefer mine plain. The morning flavors of ham and eggs, bacon and cheese…comfort food in action.
