ham & cheese hashbrown casserole...

this is a great option for something more savory.  or as a side dish for one of the sweeter recipes.  also great for a make ahead dish-  just put it together the night before then pop it into the oven that morning!

{ham & cheese hashbrown casserole}

6 cups frozen shredded hashbrowns, thawed
2/3 cup butter, melted
2 cup cooked diced ham
2 cup shredded colby jack cheese
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 eggs
3/4 cup milk
salt & pepper to taste

Press hashbrowns between 2 paper towels to remove excess moisture.  Place hashbrowns in the bottom of an ungreased 11x14 inch baking dish.  Evenly drizzle melted butter over hashbrowns.  Next layer evenly spread the ham into a layer, then the cheese.  Place chopped onions in a ziploc bag.  Add one tablespoon of butter & cook in microwave for 2 minutes.  In a small bowl beat together milk & eggs.  Add cooked onions, salt & pepper.  Pour egg mix over cheese layer.  Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown on top.
