It varies whether we go to church on Saturday nights, or Sunday mornings in our house.
If we go on Sundays we always go to brunch afterward, but if we go on Saturdays, that means we have brunch at home, in our PJs,  because we slept in!
 
It varies what we make, sometimes it’s just eggs and bacon, other times, I try something new.
This was one of those weekends.
 
My kids LOVE hash browns,
pair them with bacon and I have hit a home run!
 
I wanted to make some sort of a breakfast casserole, but so many of them I have made that are tried and true, are make ahead.
Well it was 10 AM and we wanted to eat it sooner than later, so  I experimented.
 
This is what came of it.  A pie with a hash brown crust, filled with bacon, eggs, bread crumbs, onion and Swiss cheese.
 
 
 
Press Hashbrowns and onions into bottom and sides of pie pan.
 
 
Place bread crumbs in next and top with bacon.
 
 
 
In a bowl, whisk together eggs, cream salt, pepper and Dijon mustard.
Pour over breadcrumbs and bacon.
 
Top with Cheese.
 
 
The next time I make this I am going to mix the cheese into the egg mixture.  
I felt it got a litter browner than I wanted, but still tasted fantastic!
