What You'll Need

  • 1 (20-ounce) package refrigerated shredded hash browns
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 eggs

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch deep dish pie plate with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine potatoes and butter until evenly coated. Press potatoes into bottom and up sides of prepared pie plate to form a crust. Bake 30 minutes or until crust begins to brown.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine eggs, half-and-half, and pepper; mix well.
  4. Sprinkle cheeses and ham over crust. Pour egg mixture slowly over cheeses and return to oven.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

trying to print this recipe is impossible as it takes far too long to load. you need to cut back on the adds or get a lot better internet connection. I don't have any problems with any other food sites. Just yours.

Without the directions I won't be try this recipe. If all your newly posted recipes use this format, I will be unsubscribing from your website all your zillions of newsletters. Shame on you for the obvious attempt to raise the number of visits on affiliated websites. That's unpardonable.

just thought it was o.k.

We have made this three or four times, with different ingredients and it has turned out better each time.

What is half-and-half

Hi there! Half and half is a mixture of equal parts milk and cream. You can find it in most grocery stores near the milk and other whipping cream products. Or you can make your own by mixing equal proportions of whole milk and heavy cream together.

I made this for the clients that I work with this past weekend. It was a huge hit, and it was requested to be made again. I did not add any extra salt, and it was great. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

Is there no salt in the crust or filling? Wouldn't that make it rather bland?

We don't include salt in the ingredients because there are 2 cups of cheese on top of the potatoes, and ham in the mixture, which gives it a salty flavor. However, you may add salt as desired. Enjoy! :)
