This is the experimental breakfast casserole that was in the works during the cooking extravaganza on Sunday.

Since I was trying to jam-pack the freezer, I had to do a bit of reorganizing and I noticed a package of hash browns and a package of two ham steaks that needed to be used.

D makes his dislike for ham no secret, but I didn’t want this to go to waste, so I figured if I cooked it in a maple syrup glaze and surrounded it with potatoes and cheese, it will be well received.


  • 8 Hash brown patties
  • 2 Ham Steaks
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Cup of Milk
  • 1.5 Cups of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Roma tomatoes

1. Microwave hash browns for about 1 minute, just enough to break up  and put 4 broken up hash browns on bottom of an

8 inch square casserole dish

2. In a skillet brown ham, 2 minutes on each side during the browning process put a squirt (~1tbsp) of maple syrup in the pan

3. Once the ham is browned dice and sprinkle half on top of the hash browns

4. Sprinkle 3/4 cup of shredde cheese on top

5. Layer the rest of the hash browns, ham and cheese

6. In a measuring cup mix 1 cup of milk and 4 eggs and pour over dish

7. Cover and put in refrigerator overnight

8. Bake, covered with foil for 45 minutes at 350
