A hearty and simple cheesy hashbrown casserole recipe made with eggs, shredded potatoes, spinach, white cheddar and Canadian bacon.
This month’s theme for The Recipe ReDux is healthy breakfast recipes. I was really excited about this theme, since breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! Eggs are my favorite breakfast food and never seem to get tired of them. I eat them almost every day. I’m also a big fan of breakfast potatoes. What could be better than combining the two into a tasty and simple cheesy hashbrown casserole recipe?!
Eggs are so incredibly versatile, great for quick weeknight fritattas, quiches, omelettes, scrambled with vegetables and meat or just over easy all by themselves. They are also a great protein source and very affordable, too. I added spinach to this recipe to boost the nutrients and Canadian bacon for extra protein and flavor.
This Simple Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole takes only minutes to throw together and makes a hearty breakfast that keeps you full for hours.
