The original recipe didn't have the onion or meat. I add those but I usually don't measure, so feel free to use as much as you like. I haven't tried it, but you probably could use those prepackaged shredded potatoes you can get nowadays.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Breakfast casseroles are perfect for a lazy weekend breakfast, a holiday breakfast, or brunch and this one is delicious. If you cook the potatoes the night before, this comes together in a snap in the morning. We used bacon as our meat of choice in this recipe and it made for a wonderfully complete meal! All the yummy flavors of a traditional breakfast in one easy dish.
