Egg, Ham & Cheese Breakfast Bake

This was something I created by throwing together our favorite breakfast foods. It's so simple to throw together - bake on a Sunday night and have breakfast for the week. It reheats great in the microwave! You can easily substitute bacon or sausage for the ham. Diced peppers, spinach, or tomatoes would be great in this too - the options are endless!

Serves 12

18 eggs
2 cups diced ham
20 oz uncooked hashbrowns or diced potatoes
1 medium onion, diced
1 small can mushroom pieces (could use 2)
8 oz freshly shredded cheese
1/4 cup milk or water
Salt, pepper, & other favorite seasonings to taste.

Preheat the oven to 350. Grease (or spray) a 9x13 pan.  Unless you're a fan of standing over the sink and scrubbing dishes, I recommend lining the pan with parchment paper.

Crack the eggs and whisk with the milk. Add hashbrowns, onion, mushroom, cheese, & ham. Stir to combine, and add seasonings. I did about 1 tsp of salt, fresh cracked black pepper, & onion powder and it was seasoned perfectly!

Bake for 45 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.  It's taken up to an hour before!

Let sit for 5 minutes, slice & enjoy!
