Breakfast Casserole

Here's a recipe that my Mom made for Christmas Day breakfast a couple of years ago. Scott just loved it. We have it every couple of months. Very nice in the winter. It's not a complicated recipe and could be made for 1 or 10 people. Just throw in how much of each ingredient you want.

Frozen commercial hash browns, or potatos, parboiled and diced
Sliced deli ham, diced
Brie, diced

Fry the potatos until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper. Set them aside into a large mixing bowl. Add the diced ham and Brie and mix well. Preheat the oven to 375'. Spray a casserole dish with non-stick spray. Pour the mixture into the dish and lightly press it down. With the back of a large spoon, like a ladle, make an impression in the potatos. This is where your egg will sit, so make as many impressions as you need eggs. Try not to crowd them too closely together. Crack an egg into each indent. Season with salt and pepper. If you are like me and don't like eggs any way but scrambled and hard boiled, just scramble your egg with some water and pour into the indent. I always do mine last as it seeps a bit more than the whole eggs. Bake for 10 minutes or so, until the eggs are done to your liking. Plate up and serve with ketchup and Tabasco.
