2 Tbsp chopped onion
2 C shredded Cheddar —8 oz
1 C Bisquick® or biscuit mix

  1. In a lightly oiled large skillet, brown hash-browns turning frequently until they lose about 1/3 of their moisture content in the steam produced.

  4. Layer ham, potatoes, bell pepper, onion, and 1 cup of the cheese in the baking dish.
  5. In large bowl stir Bisquick mix, milk, pepper, and eggs until blended. (Small lumps in the mixture are OK.) Pour into baking dish and smooth so all is evenly covered. Add remainder of cheese for the top layer.
