6 large eggs
4 ounces light sour cream
1 cup milk
1 cup chopped ham, pre-cooked sausage or pre-cooked bacon (or use vegetarian substitutions)
1 heaping tablespoon fresh chopped chives
1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt (or 1/2 teaspoon Mrs. Dash if you are watching the sodium)
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
4 cups shredded hash brown potatoes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spay a 9x9 glass baking dish with non-stick spray.
In one bowl, mix the hash browns and 2/3 of the cheese, and pour into the greased baking dish, spreading evenly.
Take the same bowl and add the remaining ingredients (except the extra cheese). Mix thoroughly so the eggs and sour cream are evenly blended with the rest of the ingredients.
Pour the egg mixture over the hash brown-cheese layer, using a rubber spatula to spread evenly and to ensure the eggs soak into the bottom layer. Top with the remaining cheese, distributing evenly.
Bake for approximately one hour (baking times may vary between 45 and 65 minutes), and let sit 10 minutes before cutting and serving. Depending on the size of the portions, you should get 9 - 12 servings. The top and sides should be golden brown, and the inside creamy and fluffy.
Serve and enjoy!
