  • 1 20 oz bag frozen hash browns thawed
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese divided
  • 1 cup chopped ham carving board style
  • 1 bunch green onions thinly sliced
  • 5 large eggs beaten
  • 1 12 oz can evaporated milk
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Lightly spray a 2 quart casserole dish with non stick cooking spray. Add the potatoes, and spread them out into an even layer on the bottom of the dish.
  • Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese evenly out overtop of the potatoes.
  • Spread the ham & green onions evenly out over the cheese & potatoes.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the beaten eggs and the evaporated milk until smooth. Season with salt & pepper, as desired.
  • Pour the egg mixture evenly out over the casserole, then sprinkle the remaining cheese evenly out over top of the dish.
  • Cover the casserole dish tightly with cling wrap and refrigerate it for 2 hours, or up to overnight.
  • Remove the dish from the refrigerator and bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-50 minutes- or until the eggs are set.
  • Remove the casserole from the oven and let if rest for a full 5 minutes before slicing & serving.


  • You could add extra variety by throwing in some chopped peppers and onions for some veggies.
  • Freshly shredded cheese works best here, but the bagged kind from the store works in a pinch.
  • Do NOT use lunch meat or deli style ham. Look for carving board style ham which is a thicker cut you can find in the lunch meat aisle.
