Leftover Hash Brown Bake

by Dana S on April 16, 2013

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.

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!

I always called this a frittata–works great with leftover roasted potatoes that have been cut smaller and pretty much any vegetables (when I roast carrots, cauliflower, and potatoes I use all of the leftover veggies)
