Cheesy Meaty Hash Brown Casserole
“There’s some shuffling around upstairs, then she opens the panel. The wonderful smell of frying meat fills the air. Tigris has prepared us a hash of chopped ham and potatoes. It’s the first hot food we’ve had in days, and as I wait for her to fill my plate, I’m in danger of actually drooling.” – Mockingjay, Chapter 24
This recipe looked so good I couldn’t pass it up. And it’s pretty simple, too!
While there is quite a bit of chopping and grating beforehand, most of it can be done the night before to save time in the morning. Once everything is chopped and grated, all that’s involved is mixing together the ingredients, topping with shredded cheese, and putting it in the oven!
I accidentally added an extra 1 cup of cheese than the recipe called for, but as far as I’m concerned that could only have made it even better (if that’s possible).
This is certainly not for those on a diet, but it just might be one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had!
This is a hearty casserole, so we weren’t able to get through it all, but we sure did try.
It’s SO cheesy and delicious! I would definitely make this again!
It does take time to chop everything up, but the actual cooking only requires combining the ingredients and putting them in the oven.
Cost: Average – Pricey
This recipe teeters on the edge of expensive. You will definitely need to purchase frozen hash browns, ham, bacon, cream of potato soup, sour cream, and cheddar cheese. Even if you already have some of those ingredients, you’ll need more.
Other ingredients you might need will include onion, green pepper, red pepper, and nutmeg.
I would recommend chopping up the veggies and grating the cheese the night before, which will save you time in the morning!
