Hey everyone how are you? I’m doing great, been sitting out side doing some work and watching the squirrels run and play as we have many of them and they are very entertaining.
We are having company for brunch Sunday afternoon. A Dr and his wife are visiting us to go over some final details of a website I’m doing for him. I haven’t made this recipe in some time, and decided to try it out to night for dinner as we love having breakfast occasionally. It’s very Delicious and somewhat spicy depending on how much jalapeno peppers you add to it, but ohh is it good.
I used to make it years ago and take it to a brunch for a yearly parade gathering we had in our little small town. My cousin always hosted this and so many people would show up at her house to watch they parade, eat, drink, and have fun.
I promise your going to love this recipe so please bookmark the site and be sure to share it with your friends on social media. See you tomorrow!!
- 1/2 lb sliced bacon
- 2-3 diced jalapenos (use less if you don’t want it to spicy)
- 1/2 diced onion
- 2 minced garlic cloves
- 1 medium to large zucchini, diced (can use mushrooms if preferred for this instead or both )
- 9 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 cups frozen shredded hash browns, thawed
- 1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack or cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
Next, chop the bacon and cook on a skillet on medium-high heat until nice and crispy. The crispier the bacon the better as it gives the casserole a great crunch. Remove the bacon and place on a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
In the same skillet with the bacon fat, turn the heat to medium and toss in the diced onions, garlic, green pepper, and jalapenos. Saute for about 4 minutes.
Add the diced zucchini and continue cooking until the zucchini is slightly tender (do not overcook the zucchini as it will get soggy).
Remove all the vegetables from the pan with a slotted spoon.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Mix in the hash browns and cheese followed by the vegetable mixture and the crispy bacon. Mix well
Finally, pour the entire mixture into the greased baking dish and bake uncovered for 45-55 minutes. The casserole is done when the edges of the egg are firm or if a fork comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
Slice and serve. I make pancakes to go with this sometimes.
