For this casserole you’ll need: 

  • 3 c. thawed hashbrowns (I usually put 3-4 cups worth in the fridge overnight to thaw) ($1)
  • 1/3 c. melted butter ($0.50)
  • Combine in a bowl: 
  • 1 c. diced ham ($1)
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese ($1)
  • 1/2 c. finely chopped green pepper ($0.50)
  • Mix together: 
  • 2 large eggs ($0.20)
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (you can always add more)
  • 1/2 c. milk

Preheat the oven to 425°. Press your thawed hashbrowns into a pie plate ( I have this one here and it does the trick) and drizzle melted butter over the hashbrowns.

Bake this “crust” for 25 minutes in the 425° oven. Once your crust is browned on the tips a little remove from the oven and lay the pepper, cheese and ham mixture in to the pie plate.

Pour the milk, egg, salt and pepper mixture over the casserole. Move the oven down to 350° and put in the oven for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean in the middle. Enjoy!

    What are the core or basic lessons taught Writing classes? One of the first things I learned about was Freytags Pyramid. I was told that isn’t an across the board learning device. So what is? I’m really curious. In poetry I was taught, ‘if it means too many things to too many people it misses it’s mark’. I have since learned that good writing tends to bring out different reactions in different people and different interpretations. How can learning about creative writing (creativity is so individualized) be standardized?.
