Farmer's Casserole Gary and Pat Teske, retired innkeepers of The Thistle Inn, of Holland, Michigan, share their recipe for one of their guests’ favorite breakfasts.
3 c frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
3/4 c Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers or shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 c diced fully cooked ham or Canadian bacon
1/4 c sliced green onion
4 beaten eggs
1 (12-oz) can evaporate milk
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp salt
In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, pepper, and salt. Pour egg mixture over potato mixture in the dish. (The dish may be covered and refrigerated at this point for several hours or overnight.)
Bake uncovered for 40 to 45 minutes (or 55 to 60 minutes if made ahead and chilled) or until the center appears set. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
