      This casserole dish is great for breakfast, brunch or dinner! it’s kind of like a hearty quiche, but so simple and delicious. image not available

      ingredients:
      6 c. frozen shredded hash browns (basically 1 bag)
      1 1/2 c.shredded Cheddar cheese
      2 cups diced cooked ham

      8 large beaten eggs
      Two 12-ounce cans evaporated milk
      1/4 t.

      salt
      1/4 t. pepper

      Arrange potatoes evenly in the bottom of the dish (I use an 11×14). Sprinkle with cheese, ham, and green onion. In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, salt and pepper.

      This looks quite similar to something that my mother used to make. What queued the memory was using evaporated milk! My mother was terrific at making casseroles, but that was the age of the 50’s.

      Making casseroles was the thing to do to feed your family! Why? No clue!

      But my research has led me to believe that the ‘proper’ homemake should make casseroles to stretch the food budget during that period of time.
      RicePicker…where are you from? Most casseroles from the period I mentioned are divided by the type of milk that they used. It appears that Southern states used evaporated milk while northen states used whole milk.

      Just curious…trying to add to my research… It’s been a very long time since i used evaporated milk;-d and just for the record, the recipe — if like my mother’s — is very tasty!
