I love cooking with Simply Potatoes. Last fall I shared my Au Gratin Potatoes dish I made using these potatoes and it was so simple and easy to do. Since using the potatoes the first time it’s been a main staple in my house. I always buy it for when I want to make potato dishes that require dicing, slicing and shredding. It’s just so easy to use. With Simply potatoes I don’t feel like I am cheating my family out of good healthy foods. Their potatoes are fresh, not frozen and can be found in the refrigerated section of your supermarket. When I open my package I know I am getting real potatoes that tastes great. This time around I wanted to try the shredded potatoes to make a breakfast bake. Here’s what we came up with Simply Potatoes Breakfast Bake.
As you can see we put lots of other things in the breakfast bake. It’s more like a good brunch bake. You can follow my recipe or change it to the way you like it.
My package of fresh shredded potatoes.
First I cut up the bacon in pieces and cook it till it’s crispy.
Mushrooms and Spinach was next up in the pan. I didn’t over cook them because it was still going in the oven. Next time I make this I will use fresh spinach instead of frozen.
I mixed in the ingredients into the potatoes in a separate bowl before putting it in my baking dish.
The breakfast bake ready for the oven.
Fresh out the oven and ready to eat.

|Total time||1 hour|
- 1 bag Simply Potatoes - Shredded Home Style
- 7 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 2 cups shredded cheese
- 5 slices bacon (cut into bit size pieces)
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms
- 1/2 cup cooked sausage crumbles
- 1/2 cup cooked spinach
The base of this recipe is the shredded potatoes, eggs, milk and cheese you can add and take away from it any way you choose. Also season it to your own taste. I have an allergy to onions so I don't cook with it but feel free to add it to your recipe.
|Heat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 13x9" baking dish with baking spray or olive oil.|
|Put the bacon slices in a large skillet and turn the heat on to medium. Cook the bacon, stirring occasionally, until it is crisp.|
|Remove bacon from pan skillet and put aside in a medium bowl. If you are using mushrooms, spinach and sausage you can put them in the skillet to cook for a few minutes then remove from skillet and set aside. Turn off the heat and let cook for about 3 minutes.|
|In a separate bowl, beat the eggs thoroughly and whisk in the milk. Stir in the cheese, shredded potatoes, the bacon, mushrooms, spinach, and sausage crumbles. Pour the whole mixture into the prepared baking dish. (At this point the casserole can be covered and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.)|
|When you are ready to bake the casserole, bake for 40 minutes, or until the eggs are firm and the top is slightly golden. A knife inserted in the center should come out clean.|
