This is a easy and tasty breakfast that can be whipped together quickly and thrown in the oven while you are getting ready for the day. Contains a "crust" of homemade hashbrowns and bread cubes and topped with onions, bell peppers a few spices, bacon, eggs and cheese. That is it and you have breakfast for 6 (2x4 in) pieces. Double the recipe and cook in a 9x13. This dish is meant to use what you have! If you only use egg substitute, use that if you have green onions, use them, if you do not have hashbrowns, use all cubed bread, etc.

I agree with you about leaving the bread aside until you are ready to cook. It would be easier for me to pre-mix because of all of the ingredients. I try to have everything ready to go so there is very little mixing when we get to the beach. We have a huge refrigerator there and small amount of counter space LOL! Kinda backwards but doesn't matter to me as long as I am at the coast. Anyway, I can't wait to try this recipe.

Barbara. I would rather do this the way you have it down. Things can go wrong so easy when you pre mix. This is a great recipe.

Hi Barb!! I do often add in fresh tomatoes (in this recipe, but you could add more) and other ingredients when I want a change, and when I do I do not adjust the time cooking. However if you are to add additional eggs to this, you will probably have to watch this around towards the end and see how it looks. I have not made more than this amount before and usually scale everything down...hehehe. For premixing... I have read recipes that do this. I have not tried it with this but I would think it should be fine. I do think because of the bread, it would be a different consistency. You could try to add everything together and just keep eggs separate and add before cooking. Hope this helps some and have fun!!

OOOOOOO - I love the camping idea! We have a beach lot and travel there often (only 2 hrs away). Barbara, do you think we could put some tomatoes in this also? I kinda like the idea of "playing" with this recipe and can think of all kinds of things to do with it. How easily would it adapt to change and what about the cooking times as I make those changes. I would at least start out with the orginal cooking time, but if I were to add extra eggs and ingredients.......... Also, what about premixing everything for travelling to the beach or where ever? Thanks!
