This hash brown casserole recipe is so incredibly easy to make! Starting with Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns means this recipe can be in the oven in about 10 minutes! No peeling potatoes, no shredding … and best of all the Simply Potatoes are made with fresh potatoes (never frozen) keeping this recipe tasting just like homemade!

  1. Grease a 9×13 pan or casserole dish.
  2. Combine Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns with ham, bell peppers, onions and a bit of cheese.
  3. Mix eggs, milk, and seasonings and pour over the hash brown mixture.
  4. Top with cheese and bake.

It’s that easy!

Variations on Breakfast Casserole

  • HAM: This is the perfect meal to use up your leftover Easter ham but any cooked breakfast meat is great in this meal! Try swapping out the ham for cooked and crumbled sausage or bacon!
  • CHEESE: I love the combination of ham and cheddar but of course any kind of cheese is delicious in this recipe! Add a little bit of Italian seasoning to your eggs and try some mozzarella and parmesan!
  • VEGGIES: Peppers and onions add great flavor to this easy hashbrown casserole. Any color of bell pepper will work perfectly. Add in your favorite veggies, leftover roasted asparagus, fried mushrooms or whatever else you may have on hand!

Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole

Hashbrown Casserole with Eggs is a satisfying recipe, perfect to feed a crowd!

This recipe can be prepared up to 24 hours in advance and baked in the morning (making it perfect for a holiday breakfast). If you are preparing this meal ahead of time, remove it from the fridge while the oven preheats. You may need to add 10 minutes to the cook time if your casserole is chilly from the fridge.

Serve it alongside a fresh fruit salad or fruit dip for a great Easter brunch!

Leftover Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

Just like Mini Quiche, leftover breakfast casserole will last about 4-5 days in the fridge. It can be reheated in the microwave for a quick and easy breakfast or lunch any day of the week!

If you’d like to store it longer, you can freeze breakfast casserole. We place it in individual servings in freezer bags making it easy to defrost and reheat.

    Used this recipe for brunch today (Memorial Day) and it was delicious! I had leftover ham and it was perfect for this dish. I only put ham on 2/3 of the casserole dish. I added fresh baby spinach to the 1/3 without ham. I like that I didn’t have to let this refrigerate overnight but could if I need to make ahead. Thank you

    01/19/2021 WOW~! I just made this for lunch. 3 people 60 and over ate almost the entire pan 9 x 13. It was so delicioso~!!! Due to the last minute decision I had to substitute a few things. Vidalia onion for green onions, approximately 1/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup whole milk. I also didn’t have any red peppers. I used up the bag of cheddar @ 1C and put in the casserole and for the top I had about a cup of colby jack I put on top. One more thing as I reread and edit, my “Simply” hash browns expired on 1/11/2021, so it was definitely time to use them. In my oven it took 50 minutes. It was so delicious we can hardly wait to make it again. Thank you so much~! (anyone that knows me on the computer knows me by, Nidama)

    1. Sounds like a bit hit Nidama! Thank you for sharing your substitutions. It’s a great, versatile recipe.
