This is a great dish for breakfast for several people. We were attending a rodeo twenty years ago, with our 5th wheel, along with our grandson. I misjudged the oven in the camper and its ability to produce. I waited and waited and waited, and the casserole wasn’t done. Finally, it was ready. My grandson commented, “We could just call this “Cowboy Surprise”…and so we do…every year on Christmas morning for our family breakfast..
2 packages shredded potatoes
1 green pepper-shredded
2 dozen scrambled eggs
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 lb chopped, cooked bacon/or sausage/or ham
Mix together, bake in LARGE oblong cake pan. Line pan with aluminum or parchment paper for easier cleanup.
450 Degrees 45 minutes Serves 10…
Scrambled eggs tend to continue cooking after removal from the oven..don’t wait until they look finished or they’ll be dry.
Good luck with your Cowboy Surprise. It’s pretty tasty. And…the memories get better every year.
