THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #81 (EGG RECIPES) and Bacon, Potato & Egg Casserole

(EGG RECIPES: Egg Casseroles, Egg Dishes, Egg Appetizers)
Bacon, Potato & Egg Casserole

I made this for my sister-in-laws brunch baby shower and then again this weekend.

Bacon, Potato & Egg Casserole
adapted by me, but found at The Kitchn which was adapted from a recipe from Not Your Mother's Casseroles cookbook

4 to 6 slices thick bacon, cooked and diced
1 onion, peeled and diced
1 yellow bell pepper, cleaned out and diced
1 tbsp minced garlic
1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
2 tsp salt, divided
8 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp fresh-cracked black pepper
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 bag (32 oz) frozen diced potatoes, unthawed

Heat the oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.

Pre-cut the bacon into small pieces and the add the bacon to a large skillet and turn the heat on to medium. Cook the bacon, stirring occasionally, until it is crisp. Add the onion, yellow bell pepper, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and 1 tsp of salt, and cook over medium heat until all the vegetables are soft — about 5 more minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool slightly.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs thoroughly and whisk in the milk. Whisk in the remaining teaspoon of salt, and the black pepper. Stir in the cheese, frozen potatoes, and the bacon and vegetables from the skillet. (Don't worry; the frozen potatoes cook just fine!) Pour the whole mixture into the prepared baking dish. (At this point the casserole can be covered and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.)

When you are ready to bake the casserole, bake for 40 minutes, or until the eggs are firm and the top is slightly golden. A knife inserted in the center should come out clean.
