Hash Brown Egg Bake

By November 14, 2011 No Comments

My high school daughters went to the Bountiful temple early one morning this week, so I decided to make them a hash brown breakfast casserole. Don’t misunderstand and think I bake like this all the time. But when teenage girls wake up early on a school day to go to the temple, they deserve some special treatment. I adapted this recipe from one found at a Taste of Home. They seemed to enjoy it with their friend, Janice, and even my 6 year-old ate some too. The onions were a little overpowering for me, so next time I will use less. It’s simple to put together, and I threw it together the night before. May be a good option to make ahead Christmas Eve, for Christmas morning.

Even though this recipe uses fresh foods, you can use powdered milk and dry onions. I haven’t tried it with powdered eggs, but it would probably work.
