Cheesy Potato, Egg and Ham Breakfast Casserole

Cheesy Potato, Egg and Ham Breakfast Casserole recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Miniature breakfast casserole cups filled with potatoes, cheese, ham and eggs are an awesome make-ahead meal that freezes and reheats perfectly. (That is, if you can manage to actually save a few for the freezer!) I had a baked potato leftover from dinner the previous night and a whole lot of ham waiting to be used. One thing led to another and within half an hour I was taking these awesome breakfast muffins out of the oven.

My kids and I managed to eat almost this whole recipe within minutes. Served with some fresh fruit or a salad, this makes a light and very simple meal that I'm sure to be repeating again soon, whether for breakfast or dinner.

Cheesy Potato, Egg and Ham Breakfast Casserole
Yield: 12 small muffin-size servings
(printable recipe)

1 large russet potato, baked and cooled
1/4 - 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup ham, diced small
1/4 cup very finely sliced green onions
8 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Peel and grate the cold potato, you should have about 2 cups worth. Place the shredded potato in a medium size mixing bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Grease a 9" casserole dish or 12 muffin cups. Pour the egg mixture into the casserole dish or scoop 1/4 cup worth into each muffin cup.

Bake the casserole for 35-40 minutes, (bake the muffin cups for just 20 minutes), until the casserole has set up in the middle and is lightly browned. Let cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!

FREEZER MEAL: Let cool and then portion into freezer safe Ziplocs or resealable containers. The quiche can be thawed in the refrigerator first or reheated in the microwave straight from the freezer.
