I made hash browns with eggs for a special Saturday morning breakfast only to discover that my kids don’t like hash browns. What to do with these leftover potatoes? I quickly searched the Internet and found a recipe idea using ingredients that I already had in the fridge. I made a few adjustments and it was perfect! The nice thing about this recipe is that you can easily change the vegetables to what you have in the fridge. Mushrooms, red peppers, or leftover breakfast meat would all work great in place of the green peppers.
First, saute your veggies until they are nice and soft.
Place your veggies at the bottom of a small oven safe casserole dish. Then add your leftover hash browns, pour egg mixture over and top with cheese. Bake at 425 degrees for 25-35 minutes and then enjoy!
