I have tried a couple breakfast casseroles, but every time the potatoes come out the texture of mashed potatoes… I don’t know about you, but I like my potatoes to be crispy or at least firm, unless I am specifically going for mashed potatoes. Needless to say, those casseroles didn’t make the cut. So finally, I decided to make my own version! This is the result. It is the simple version, but would be great with spicy sausage and red bell pepper added to the mix!
4 potatoes (baked or microwaved until soft)
1/3 cup cream
1/2 TBS garlic powder
2 cups nacho cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Dice the potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Spray an 8×8 baking dish and place the potatoes in the dish. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, garlic powder, salt and pepper together. Pour the egg mixture over the potatoes. Drizzle 1 cup of the nacho cheese over the top of the potatoes and eggs.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the top is golden brown, and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean (there may be a little residue from the nacho cheese). Drizzle the remaining nacho cheese over the top and serve.
