READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This can also be baked in a 10-inch pie plate or an 11 x 7-inch baking dish, also use as much shredded cheese as deired. Use the frozen potato patties for this, not hash browns.

This was very good Kitz. I made this with cooked link sausage and fresh mushrooms because that is what I had but otherwise made as directed. I also decreased the salt to 1/4 tsp and that was plenty. Thanks
