COOK TIME

South-of-the-border flavors are very hot, and not because of their spicy flavor, but because they're as popular as can be. Our cheesy Southwestern Breakfast Bake is hearty enough for brunch, lunch or even dinner!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (30-ounce) package frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese blend
  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1/2 of a red bell pepper, diced
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. Arrange potatoes evenly in bottom of dish. Sprinkle with cheese, green chilies, bell pepper, and scallions.
     
  3. In a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well then pour evenly over potato mixture.
     
  4. Bake uncovered 55 to 60 minutes, or until center is cooked through and set.

This was OK but nothing special. The hashbrowns turned out a little mushy and I thought it was rather bland. I will not be making this again.

Add some sausage to this also.

I'd like to have the nutritional info included with the recipes

Carbs are carbs and fats are fats what more do you have to know. Eat both in moderation.

Delicious! My entire family loved it and I'm making it for extended family when they visit over the Easter holiday for breakfast! (I left the scallions out cuz I didn't have any and added green pepper with the red pepper)

Wow - yummo - used 9x13 as recommended, added a teaspoon of garlic powder (not salt) also, some extra chopped green onions. Then about 10 min before done time, took it out, added an 8oz. package of shredded Mexican Melting Cheese on top, put it back in and when serving, sprinkled with my favorite hot sauce and man was it yummo! Definately spray the pan first just as he say's for easy clean up. Mine just slipped right out. And be sure & use the red bell pepper - added a sweetness level I don't think you'll get with green. 5 star's from me Mr. Food!

Didn't like the hash browns on the bottom too well. Pan was miserable to clean up afterwards. Have had better tasting egg casseroles.

The recipe calls for a "9" x 13" glass baking dish" but I have a small counter-top convection oven and have not been able to find a glass dish that will fit in my oven. I have a 9" x 13" metal pan that fits and need to know how to adjust the recipe baking time and/or temp to accommodate the convection oven and the metal pan. Please help. I need the recipe to take to work on Bosses Day, October 17. Thanks!!
