Instant Pot Egg and Hash Brown Casserole

If you like a delicious egg casserole that is made while you sleep and ready when you wake up then this recipe is for you!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag frozen Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, thawed
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 cup chopped ham, crumbled turkey sausage (cooked) or bacon pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional add-ins: diced bell peppers, tomatoes, asparagus or zucchini, torn spinach, artichokes, olives,
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk (I used skim- but any kind will work)
  • 1 Tablespoon  salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Directions:

  1. Spray the insert of an Instant pot with nonstick cooking spray
  2. Put the eggs, cheese, milk and salt and pepper into a bowl and whisk until well blended.
  3. Pour oil into the bottom of the Instant Pot and set to “Saute”.  When the oil is hot add the potatoes, ham (or meat of choice), onions, garlic and add-in’s of choice and saute until onions are golden.
  4. Turn the Instant Pot to Cancel and pour the egg mixture over the veggies. and salt and pepper.
  5. Close your lid and push “Slow Cook for 8 hours with the vent closed.
  6. When the timer is done while you sleep it will automatically turn to “keep warm” to stop the cooking process.
  7. Wake up and serve with your favorite toppings. Some of mine are: salsa, hot sauce, Kimchi,  avocado,  tomatoes, and salt and pepper!
