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.
