Homemade Organic Bacon and Hash Brown Casserole

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 1 lb. organic pork belly, sliced thin like bacon OR organic bacon without synthetic additives
  • 1 small organic yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 cups frozen Homemade Organic Hash Brown Potatoes
  • 2 1/4 cups organic grass-fed whole milk
  • 8 large organic pasture eggs
  • 1 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. organic freshly ground peppercorn blend
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly grated organic nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp. organic dry mustard
  • 4 cups cubed organic multigrain bread; crusts removed, diced and dried for croutons
  • 1 cup grated organic cheddar
  • 1 cup freshly grated organic Parmesan

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cook the bacon over medium-high heat until it is cooked through.
  3. Using additional lard, butter or bacon grease, coat a 9″ x 13″ casserole dish.
  4. Add the onion and saute over medium-low heat until soft, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the hash browns and break apart. Saute until crispy, about 10 -15 minutes.
  6. In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk, eggs, salt, pepper, nutmeg and mustard.
  7. Whisk briskly to blend.
  8. Spread the onions and hash browns evenly at the bottom of the greased dish.
  9. Place the bread cubes evenly on top of hash browns. With a slotted spoon distribute sausage as the third layer. Pour the milk and egg mixture over these layers.
  10. Add Parmesan as the next layer, and then add the cheddar as the final layer.
  11. Bake the casserole, uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes, until puffed and golden brown.
  12. Enjoy!

If you’d like, you can refrigerate the casserole overnight before baking.
