Try this versatile Hash Brown Casserole as a main or side dish for breakfast or brunch. This recipe calls for bacon, but it is a great recipe for leftover ham. If your family likes spice, try adding in some pepper jack cheese or crushed red pepper flakes.

Perfect for Easter Brunch!

This was perfect for our Easter brunch. Super easy for me to make and everyone loved it. Next time, I might try it with broccoli instead and omit the green pepper for wider appeal.

Added more meat

I added a julienne cut ham steak to ensure there was enough meat in this dish since I was serving it as a supper main dish.

Best Casserole Ever!

I've been making this casserole for years now. It's the only dish I'm allowed to bring for company events because they love it so much. It's easy and delicious. I've used diced ham and smoked sausage in the recipe before and they both give it a unique flavor.

Easy peasy
