How to make Bacon Egg and Hash Brown Casserole

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F. Using butter, lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Step 2: In the bottom of the prepared pan, spread the hashbrown in an even layer.

Step 3: Place the eggs, milk, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and cayenne in a large bowl. Mix well until combined, then pour this over the hashbrown. On top, sprinkle half of the cheese, followed by the bacon, then the rest of the cheese.

Step 4: Using foil, tightly cover the baking dish. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 1 hour. Uncover and resume baking for an additional 5 to 10 minutes or until the middle of the casserole is set.

Step 5: Remove the casserole from the oven when done and allow it to stand for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 6: If desired, garnish with some chopped green onions. Serve and enjoy!
