Ham and Cheese Brunch Square
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 2 cups (8 ounces) grated cheese of your choice, divided (I like marble)
- 1 package (22.5 ounces) frozen toaster hash brown patties, thawed (10 patties)
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 12 eggs
- ½ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
- 8 ounces thickly sliced deli ham
- 4-5 green onions with tops, divided (1 cup sliced)
- 3 plum tomatoes
- Additional coarsely ground black pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly brush Large Bar Pan with oil.
Grate cheese using . Crumble hash browns over bar pan; press gently into an even layer. Sprinkle with half of the cheese evenly over hash browns. Bake 13-15 minutes or until crust starts to brown and cheese is melted.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add eggs and black pepper; whisk until smooth.
On Cutting Board, coarsely chop ham. Slice green onions, reserving ¼ cup of the tops for garnish. Place ham and remaining green onions into egg mixture.
Pour egg mixture over crust. Return pan to oven; bake 6-8 minutes or until center is set.
Meanwhile, slice tomatoes in half lengthwise and scrape out seeds and dice.
Remove pan from oven; top with remaining cheese, tomatoes and reserved green onions. Sprinkle with additional black pepper, if desired.
Cut into squares and serve!
Yields approximately 12 servings.
