Cheesy Bacon Hash Brown Pie

Bacon, hash browns and extra sharp cheddar cheese baked together till crispy is an easy breakfast dish your family will ask for over and over again!

With all of the craziness that has been our life the during the last month, we pretty much had to abandon our regular routine, and I’ve missed it. But now we’ve moved into our new house and things are starting to slow down and return to a new normal.

I cannot wait to wake up on Saturday morning with nothing on the to-do list— nothing to pack or unpack, no urgent errands to run. We’re going to stay in our pajamas till noon, watch cartoons, and enjoy a leisurely homemade breakfast together. This hash brown pie packed with crispy bacon and lots of 100% real, natural cheddar cheese may even end up on our table. It’s one of my new favorite things!

4 slices bacon , chopped
½ onion chopped
3 large eggs
⅓ cup whole milk (80 ml)
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
3 cups frozen hash browns , thawed (200 grams)
1 ½ cups cheddar cheese (170 grams)
Sour cream
Additional shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 375°F.
In a well-seasoned 8 or 9-inch cast iron skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crispy and fat has rendered. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Add the onion to the skillet and reduce heat to medium low. Cook until onion is soft and translucent, about 4 minutes.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Stir in the hash browns, cheese, bacon and onion.
Make sure the cast iron skillet is well greased with bacon grease, and grease with non-stick cooking spray if needed. Dump the hash brown mixture into the skillet and spread it evenly in the pan. Bake until edges are crispy, about 30-35 minutes. Serve immediately.
