  • Eggs
  • Heavy cream
  • Cheese
  • Fresh cilantro (optional)

How To Make Au Gratin Potato Breakfast Bake:

Step 1. Heat oven to 425℉. Spray a shallow casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Add thinly sliced potatoes and coat with oil and season with seasoned salt. Spread the potatoes in a single layer but overlapping is just fine. Roast for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and tender. Turn heat down to 350℉.

Step 2. While potatoes roast, cook bacon pieces in a skillet until crispy. Remove and set aside. Add veggies to the pan and sauté until tender.

Step 3. Whisk eggs, heavy cream and seasoned salt in a medium bowl until smooth.

Step 4. Evenly scatter veggies over the top of the roasted potatoes, followed by half of the bacon and half of the cheese. Pour the egg mixture over the top then sprinkle on the rest of the cheese and bacon. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the egg is puffed and set.

Storing Leftovers:

This breakfast bake makes great leftovers. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
