Recipe: Potato Bacon Casserole

Summary: I liked this recipe from the start. It didn’t complicate things with tons of steps and most of the ingredients I had on hand.

Ingredients

    • 4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
    • 8 ounces bacon or turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
    • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
    • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ CARNATION Evaporated Milk
    • 1 large egg, lightly beaten or 1/4 cup egg substitute
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt

Instructions

  1. PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease 8-inch-square baking dish.
  2. LAYER 1/2 potatoes, 1/2 onion, 1/2 bacon and 1/2 cheese in prepared baking dish; repeat layers. Combine evaporated milk, egg and seasoned salt in small bowl. Pour evenly over potato mixture; cover.
  3. BAKE for 55 to 60 minutes. Uncover; bake for an additional 5 minutes. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
  4. So, the first tailgate breakfast was a pretty huge success. I wish I had made more because everyone wanted seconds. The only thing I would do differently is bake it longer. My oven seems to always take longer than required. Every recipe I read says ovens vary and adjust time accordingly.
