Farmer's Breakfast Casserole

"I try to send the girls out the door with a good breakfast in the morning and this can be altered to be lower in fat and cholesterol by the use of skimmed evaporated milk and egg beaters. Results still excellent! I use turkey bacon instead of ham, although it is great with ham too. Pat Ensenbach submitted this recipe for the St. John's Lutheran Church and Preschool Cookbook, Yankton South Dakota. Serving size indicates 8-10 servings but that is if you cut it evenly before serving. If people help themselves, you may have more or less servings depending on how much they take! Please note there is a refridgeration time (several hours to overnight)"

  • Place potatoes in an 8 inch square baking dish ( I used a 10 inches skillet with good results) which has been wiped down with shortening or sprayed with Pam. Potatoes will thaw over night in the fridge.
  • Sprinkle dish with cheese, ham and onions.
  • In a separate bowl, beate eggs, evaporated milk, pepper and salt together.
  • Pour into baking dish over the potato mixture.
  • Cover and refridgerate for several hours or overnight.
  • Remove from refridgerator 30 minutes before baking.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350* for 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

  1. I don't eat eggs, but did make this for our family...they enjoyed went together easily and it is definitely something I would make again for them...thanks for sharing.


I am a special education teacher for the birth to three crowd! I love my job! My husband and I have 4 teenage daughters. He is so great--he keeps the 5 of us in balance..which isn't always the easiest job in the world! My picture came about while I was in college a few years ago. I was going crazy with tons of homework but felt compelled to make the family breakfast. I wasn't paying any attention to what I was doing and when I looked down, the eggs were smiling up at me! For some reason, I just love that picture and I don't really want to change it to a photo of myself. Biggest pet peeve: Tangled hangars! You try to get just one hangar and 3 more will somehow twist themselves around the one you want! I am very allergic to onions--I do not breathe them, eat them or touch them if I can help it. Sometimes I feel like we are an onion obcessed society! Start looking at labels! You would be surprised at how many boxes and packages contain onion in some form. That's okay....I make most things from scratch--which is probably better anyway.
