BY:Five Marigolds


  • 10-piece package of frozen hash brown patties, slightly thawed
  • 2 cups cheese, shredded (Colby, Monterey Jack, or other cheese of choice)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 12 Nellie’s Free Range Eggs
  • 8 ounces diced ham
  • 2-3 large green onions with tops
  • 3 Roma tomatoes
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • In a 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan, crumble the hash browns. Top evenly with 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Bake at 450F for 13-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, soften cream cheese in the microwave until it whisks smooth. Whisk in 12 Nellie’s Free Range Eggs until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Slice green onions and dice the tomatoes.
  • Pour the egg mixture evenly over the baked hash brown crust. Top with ham, half of the green onions, and black pepper. Bake at 450F for 20-23 minutes, or until the egg mixture has thoroughly cooked through.
  • Remove the baking pan from the oven and top with remaining cheese, green onions, and tomatoes. Serve and enjoy!

Do you think I could freeze this recipe?


While we haven't tried freezing the recipe, we do know it reheats well if refrigerated. Another idea would be to to prep all of the ingredients the night before to limit time in the kitchen that morning. We look forward to hearing how it goes!
