-3 cups shredded frozen hash browns, thawed and drained
-4 tablespoons butter, melted
-1/2 cup milk
-1/2 cup half&half (I used fat free)
-3/4 cup real bacon pieces (you can use real bacon, or I used Hormel Real Bacon Pieces)
-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
-1 cup cooked frozen spinach
-1/4 cup diced scallions
- salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
2. In a bowl, mix the drained hash browns and the melted butter. Pour into a 9inch pie dish and press down to mold the hash browns into the dish, with some coming up on the edges to form the crust. Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
3. In a mixing bowl, combine all remaining ingredients. When crust has finished baking, pour egg mixture into hash brown crust, make sure to press mixture down to pack spinach into crust. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes. Garnish with a few chopped scallions.
