Cheesy Egg O'Brien Casserole a great breakfast casserole for guests or for your family. Only a handful of ingredients and has the perfect cheesy goodness in every bite.
Have you ever been invited to a brunch or gathering and needed to bring a breakfast dish? I have and when they would tell me "breakfast casserole", I really didn't have a good one to pull from.
So, I wanted to change that. This Cheesy Egg O'Brien Casserole would be great to take to such a gathering. It would also be great for a special breakfast at your house.
This breakfast recipe only has a few ingredients and it is so simple to make.
What are the ingredients in this potato egg casserole?
The ingredients are very simple. I bought O'Brien hashbrowns at Kroger while on sale. The hashbrowns are chunks, not shredded potatoes and it comes with chopped peppers and onions. You can certainly use regular hashbrowns and just chop your own veggies.
I went the simpler way.
This casserole also has eggs and heavy cream in it. Pretty simple, right?
Can I make this cheesy egg o'brien casserole on the go?
I know that most of my recipes are on the go recipes, but as simple as these ingredients are, it isn't in your best interest not to plan ahead with this casserole. It takes about 1 hour to cook all the way through.
The eggs take a little time to firm up and you want the potatoes to be soft.
