Potato Bacon Casserole

Happy Leap Day!!!!!!

Who loves breakfast?
*both hands raised in the air*
Me! Me! Me!!! OOOOH Pick Me!!
Well pick US!
We both love breakfast!!! 
When we were dating it was one of those moments that put extra decorative frosting on the cake when he said he loved eating breakfast for dinner.
For a while now, I would almost venture to say since we've been married but I'm not quiet sure, we have breakfast every Wednesday night!!!!
It always make me happy and I look forward to it every week. :)
So last Wednesday for dinner we made Potato Bacon Casserole.
This takes longer then you would think, but is super easy and I would eat it again but start making it sooner. When Marvin got home from work I talked to him while he showered and then it was after 6 and then by the time we put dinner (breakfast) in the oven it was almost 6:30 and it takes almost an hour to cook. I was already really hungry to begin with and when I'm hungry I get really grumpy... It was bad. So, needless to say, when you're super hungry and don't have an hour to wait for dinner make something else, or eat a snack.
But this is super delicious, just start making it early enough!!!!

4 cups frozen Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes
1/2 cup finely copped Onion (optional)
8 oz Bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 can Nestle Carnation Evaporated Milk
2 medium Eggs, lightly beaten (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)
1 1/2 tsp Seasoned Salt

Preheat oven to 350*

Grease 8-in square baking dish

Layer 1/2 potatoes, 1/2 onion (opt), 1/2 bacon, 1/2 cheese in prepared baking dish; Repeat layers

Combine evaporated milk, egg and seasoned salt in small bowl

Pour evenly over potato mixture

Bake for 55-60 minutes; covered

Uncover and back for additional 5 minutes

Let stand for 10-15 minutes before serving

**Double check what temperature your stove is at before you walk away while it's cooking. One of us had brushed up against the dial and dropped the temperature so it took almost an hour and a half to cook. Man alive I was starving!! :)

I'll have this again. 
Let us know what you added to your casserole!
