My mom actually makes a delicious breakfast casserole just like this one so I think the name is very appropriate! Her's is a little different it has a bottom layer of shredded hash browns and then a layer of eggs, ham or bacon, cheese, and cream cheese! I'm very intrigued by the cream of chicken soup so will forward this recipe to my own Mama to try!

I love dishes like this. Anything with cheese and potatoes is fine in my book. I was intrigued by the idea below of putting the ingredients (without ham) on top of a layer of ground beef. I think that would work very well, though I'd like to try it with the ham first. Bacon also sounds like a good substitution for the ham, though the combination of ground beef and bacon would be good too.

Hash browns are foreign to Africa so after Googling what they are I replaced the hash brown potatoes with sweet potatoes (because that is what we had). The dish is wonderfully warming and filling. The sour cream brings a delightful flavor to the sauce and it is a really good dish for the whole family.

You can also add some French's onion rings on the top at the last 5 minutes and broil them, but they'll burn if you don't watch them.

I added about 1 and 1/2 pounds of browned ground beef to the bottom of a crock; and then put this recipe on the top. It turned out better than I ever thought it would.

Did you use the ground beef and the ham also?
