This casserole is perfect for breakfast or brunch, and would make a great recipe for Christmas morning!
While I love a good hash brown casserole with breakfast, this recipe is more of a complete meal with the addition of eggs and veggies.
How to make hash brown egg casserole
Step 1: Melt butter in a skillet and add the yellow onion and minced garlic.
Cook until onion is soft, around 10 minutes.
While the onions are cooking, go ahead and prep the bell peppers, cheese, and green onions.
Be sure not to skip grating the cheese fresh, it really makes a big difference in flavor!
I love the flavor of sharp cheddar in this casserole recipe.
Step 2: Add the thawed frozen hash browns, half of the fresh grated cheddar cheese, cooked garlic and onion, and red and green bell peppers to a large bowl.
Stir well until combined.
Step 3: Grease a large 9 by 13 baking dish and add the hash brown mixture to it. Spread out evenly.
Step 4: In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper, and Italian seasoning.
Step 5: Pour the egg mixture evenly over the potato casserole.
Try to get it evenly to cover the whole dish.
Step 6: Top with the remaining sharp cheddar cheese and the chopped green onions.
Step 7: Bake the hash brown egg casserole at 375 degrees for one hour, until the edges are browned and the cheese is bubbly.
Serve and enjoy!
What to serve with hash brown breakfast casserole
- Fruit Salad
- Sausage, Bacon (Vegetarian versions for us!)
- with ketchup or salsa
This recipe is delicious as is, but we personally like to serve ours with ketchup.
Breakfast casserole is great for special occasions, or meal prep to have breakfast for several days in a row.
The bell peppers add a great texture to the dish, but you could definitely switch it up and use what you have on hand!
Cooked mushrooms or spinach would be great additions as well.
You can’t go wrong with a cheesy hashbrown casserole!
