Egg and Hash Brown Casserole by

Source: Cooking Light

I don't like Swiss. So I used Gruyere instead.


8 center-cut bacon slices
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
8 oz sliced mushroom caps
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups shredded hash brown potatoes (such as Simply Potatoes)
1/4 cup no-salt-added chicken stock
5 cups fresh baby spinach
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
3 oz reduced-fat Swiss cheese, finely chopped
Cooking spray
1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk
6 large eggs, lightly beaten


1. Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; crumble. Increase heat to medium-high. Add onion, mushrooms, and garlic to drippings in pan; saute for 6 minutes. Add potatoes and stock; cook 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Add spinach, basil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes. Stir in crumbled bacon and cheese. Place mushrom mixture in a 11x7-inch broiler-safe glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
2. Preheat oven to 350.
3. Uncover dish. Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, milk, and eggs in a medium bowl. Pour egg mixture over mushroom mixture. bake at 350 for 28 minutes.
