Hash Brown Casserole

Serves 8


Frozen hash browns
1 small onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
olive oil
16 strips of crisp bacon, clumbled
14 eggs
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Sour cream
Scallions, chopped (as garnish)

7X11 baking dish


Preheat oven to 325°.  

Spray baking dish and fill it over half-full of frozen hash browns.  Brown one small onion and pepper in a small amount of olive oil and spread over potato mixture.  Follow with bacon. Place in the oven for 30 minutes (watch so that it doesn't over-brown the bacon and the potatoes are done).  Twenty minutes before serving, scramble the eggs until soft and spread over the potato mixture.  Cover with cheese and return to barely warm oven to melt the cheese.  Top each serving portion with a small scoop of sour cream and scallions.
