This is one of the recipes that I serve my houseguests during the upcoming holidays… It gets requested quite a bit.

It’s simple to make, and you can even prebake the hash brown crusts the day before.

Plus you can personalize it using different meats, and even add a few veggies.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
