Hash Brown Potato Casserole with Ham

Gluten Free Living – 2019

Hash Brown Potato Casserole with Ham is so, so wonderful. This is one of those breakfast casseroles you just can’t get enough of. It consists of hash brown potatoes, ham, onion, red bell pepper, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, sour cream and eggs. This is NOT your traditional Hash Brown Potato Casserole at all. This one contains half-and-half, eggs and cream cheese so it cooks up more like a potato souffle. It is really something special.

Back in January one of the folks in our care group brought this casserole. It’s designed to be a slow cooker recipe. But even after cooking on high for 3-4 hours the recipe was still soupy. She microwaved it until she got it somewhat set and brought it anyway. She was angry about it and said she’d never make it again. But I thought even with all those problems, the recipe had real potential. It just needed to be cooked a lot longer than originally stated.

Instead of making it in the slow cooker, I decided to try my hand it at in the oven. It took almost 1 1/2 to two hours in the oven to cook it sufficiently. But it was wonderful. It was so wonderful I made it a couple of times. I made it again for our care group. I also made it for our Young Adult (college-age) folks when I served them breakfast after church one Sunday. It was a huge hit. I also made Sausage Biscuits and Gravy, Sausage Cheese Grits Casserole, Cheesy O’Brien Egg Scramble and Chocolate Chip Donuts.

I refrigerated the casserole overnight. But you can also cook this right after you prepare it. If you do so, the cook time will be shortened. If you want to make this recipe in the slow cooker, I recommend adding about two hours to either the low or high heat settings. I will tell you, I was really glad I started this casserole early and allowed extra time. If you choose to bake it, start it in the oven two hours before you plan dinner and that should work.

The length of baking time is the only thing about this recipe that you will have difficulty with. The recipe itself is absolutely awesome and one we certainly plan to make frequently. I chose to make this as a breakfast item, but you could certainly make this as a side dish if you wanted to.

Another nice thing about the recipe is it’s gluten free. So for those in your family who have gluten intolerance, this is a great side dish to make. Hash Brown Potato Casserole with Ham is truly one of the tastiest casseroles we’ve tried in awhile. I hope you give it a try for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day breakfast. You’re family is sure to rave over it like all of our company did.

Instructions
  1. Combine hash browns, ham, onion, bell pepper and one cup of cheddar cheese in a large mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs.
  3. Add half-and-half, sour cream, salt, garlic powder, pepper until well blended.
  4. Stir in the cream cheese.
  5. Add the egg mixture to the hash brown mixture and stir well to combine.
  6. Place in a greased 9x13” glass baking dish.
  7. If desired, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  8. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for about one hour.
  9. Remove foil and bake an additional 30-45 minutes.
  10. Remove casserole from oven and sprinkle with remaining cup of Cheddar cheese and the green onions.
  11. Bake an additional 10 minutes, until cheese is melted.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: I covered this casserole with foil. But if you need it done more quickly, bake the casserole uncovered. It took about one hour 40 minutes for the casserole to bake otherwise.

NOTE: I refrigerated the casserole overnight. If you plan to bake immediately it will not take as long. Start checking after 60 minutes.

      Jennifer, have you clicked on the Pinterest icon at the very top of the recipe and under the first picture? Also there is a side bar where you should be able to bring up all the pictures for that post. It’s there. See if that will work.
