Delicious! And so easy! As noted, would probably be good to thaw the frozen potatoes first. They would likely incorporate better. Still, really good. I have made over and over.

Your problem is that you use frozen potatoes; shred your own in your handy-dandy chopper--excellent!

i,m going to try it but think will reduce the evaporated milk a little and thaw and drain hash browns first and maybe even precook them 5 to 10 min first before adding other ingredients and also up the sale and pepper some

Maybe using a lower more open dish will allow it to cook more evenly. It will not be as high but the thinner it is it should cook better.

I baked this recipe exactly as written, using evaporated milk, and mine, too, came out "watery," i.e. with an uncooked, 4-inch area directly in the center. The uncooked portion was just as liquid as when it went in the oven 55 minutes before. I stirred the outer cooked area and the liquid areas together and baked for 15 minutes more, and it finally came out completely cooked.



Turned out very bland. If I do try it again I'll swap out the ham for some spicy cooked sausage perhaps, and add some cayenne pepper and dry mustard.

I only used 2/3 cup milk and uped the eggs from 4 to 6. I used frozen hash browns without precooking. I didn't have any issues with "water". My guess regarding the extra liquid was that it was from the amount of milk the receipe called for.

I was excited to try this recipe but it didn't turn out well. I did use turkey bacon instead of sausage so that may have been why it wasn't quite as salty as I would have liked. But my main issue was after it was finished cooking it wasn't done on the inside and still raw so I cooked it 5 more minutes and all of this water started coming up from it so I used a lot of paper towels to absorb it and cooked it an extra total of 15 more minutes and it still didn't taste very good. I'm guessing all of the water came from the frozen hash browns that was at the bottom but the recipe specifically says "frozen" has browns and doesn't say anything about cook them first or thawed. If I ever make this again I would probably cook the hash browns first but I honestly don't know if that would fix it. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.
