Bacon, Potato & Egg Breakfast Casserole

Serves: 6
Oven temp: 350°F / 180°C / Gas Mark 4
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 40 mins

Ingredients

QtyIngredient
4 slicesBacon; thick, cut into strips about 1/2-inch wide
1 largeOnion; peeled and diced
1 wholeYellow bell pepper; diced
4 clovesGarlic; minced
1/3 cupSun-dried tomatoes; chopped
2 teaspoonsSalt; divided
8 largeEggs
1 cupMilk; fat content between 1% and 4% (whole)
1 teaspoonGround black pepper
2 cupsCheddar cheese; grated
3 cupsFrozen diced potatoes; unthawed

Method

StepInstruction
1Heat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 13x9" baking dish with baking spray or olive oil.
2Put the bacon slices in a large frying pan and turn the heat on to medium. Cook the bacon, stirring occasionally, until it is crisp. Add the onion, yellow bell pepper, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and 1 teaspoon of salt, and cook over medium heat until all the vegetables are fragrant and soft — about 5 more minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool slightly.
3In a separate bowl, beat the eggs thoroughly and whisk in the milk. Whisk in the remaining teaspoon of salt, and the black pepper. Stir in the cheese, frozen potatoes, and the bacon and vegetables from the skillet. (Don't worry; the frozen potatoes cook just fine!) Pour the whole mixture into the prepared baking dish. (At this point the casserole can be covered and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.)
4When you are ready to bake the casserole, bake for 40 minutes, or until the eggs are firm and the top is slightly golden. A knife inserted in the center should come out clean.
5Serve immediately with fruit and rolls or toast.
