Kentucky Derby Egg Casserole

After living near the South for seven years, I quickly fell in love with the Kentucky Derby traditions. It’s the first weekend in May, but the Derby holiday season lasts for a full week.  While I now live several states west, the season rolls on.  One of the traditions that I’ll never leave (by choice) is getting together with a great group to watch the race and sing, “My Old Kentucky Home.”

In getting together with friends for this daytime celebration, a favorite dish to bring to the party is our Mama’s Egg Casserole.  It’s easy to make, filled with (primarily) healthy ingredients, and is a certain crowd pleaser!

egg cassarole

24 oz. frozen hash browns

2 c. diced ham

6 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

6 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese

6 eggs

1/2 tsp. salt

1 c. milk

minced onion & green pepper (optional)

In 9 x 13 baking dish sprayed with Pam, layer potatoes, then ham, onion, green pepper, and cheese.  In bowl, combine eggs, salt, and milk, and pour over layers.  Cover and refrigerate at least three hours (optional, but lets it settle.)  Uncover and bake at 350 for one hour.  Enjoy!


What’s your favorite dish to bring over to a potluck brunch?  Do you have any favorite Kentucky Derby memories?

Create a great life!

    Mmm..this looks amazingly delicious! Growing up in CA, far from the South, I never really took notice of the Kentucky Derby; only in recent years have I made friends with people who host Kentucky Derby parties!

    Sounds like the ultimate comfort food. I’d love to make this minus the ham. :]
