This simple breakfast casserole combines homemade hash browns with all your favorite omelet ingredients. It's a real lifesaver when you're expecting overnight guests.


  • 3 (519 g) medium russet potatoes, cubed into 1 1/2-inch (4 cm) chunks
  • 2 cups (480 ml) egg substitute or 8 eggs
  • 2 cups (480 ml) milk

  3. Add water to the 8 cup (1.9 l) level and secure lid.
  4. Select Variable 5 or 6. (Slower speed produces a coarser chop.)

  7. Place egg substitute, milk, salt, and cheese into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  8. Select Variable 1.
  9. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
  10. Blend for 20 seconds.
  11. Reduce speed to Variable 3 and remove the lid plug.
  12. Add peppers, onion, potatoes, and ham through the lid-plug opening.
  13. Blend for 10-15 seconds.
  14. Pour into prepared pan.
  15. Bake covered with aluminum foil for 40-45 minutes.
  16. Uncover and bake another 30-35 minutes until firm and lightly browned.
