Tips, Tricks, and Suggestions

The great thing about this recipe is how easy it would be to customize to you or your guest's preferences.

  • Want to make it healthier? Consider including other vegetables such as tomatoes, spinach, etc.
  • Consider the different types of meats you could use. Consider using sausage, ham, or other meats. Also, don't forget that you could forgo the meat entirely.
  • Want to make it crispier or have a drier texture? Pre-cook the hash browns placing them in the casserole and baking it for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.

Not sure who likes what in their casserole? Consider splitting the final mixture into two or more separate pans (ramekins for example) with different ingredients in each. This will be a very easy way to allow people to choose what they'd like best.

Another great way to accommodate diverse tastes might be to offer options at the table such as spices like paprika, minced garlic, salsa, ketchup, or any other add-ons!
