  • Spread the hashbrowns evenly into the bottom of your baking pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, seasonings and cream until well blended. Pour the egg mixture over the hashbrowns. Top with half of the sauteed vegetables, followed by half the bacon, and then a layer of half of the shredded cheese. Repeat the layers with the remaining vegetables, bacon and cheese.
  • Cover the baking pan with foil and bake for 40-45 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the casserole is fully cooked through. Garnish with green onions, slice and serve.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
