Potato Cheddar Breakfast Bake
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
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 8 ounces (227 g) cheddar cheese, cut into cubes
- 1/4 cup (40 g) chopped green pepper
- 1/4 cup (40 g) chopped onion
- 1 1/2 cups (210 g) diced ham
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Spray a 9-inch x 9-inch (23 cm x 23 cm) baking pan with cooking spray.
- Place potatoes into the Vitamix container and fill to the 6 cup (1.4 l) level.
- Add water to the 8 cup (1.9 l) level and secure lid.
- Select Variable 5 or 6. (Slower speed produces a coarser chop.)
- Turn on for about 10 seconds, using the tamper if necessary.
- Drain well, reserve.
- Place egg substitute, milk, salt, and cheese into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
- Select Variable 1.
- Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
- Blend for 20 seconds.
- Reduce speed to Variable 3 and remove the lid plug.
- Add peppers, onion, potatoes, and ham through the lid-plug opening.
- Blend for 10-15 seconds.
- Pour into prepared pan.
- Bake covered with aluminum foil for 40-45 minutes.
- Uncover and bake another 30-35 minutes until firm and lightly browned.
This recipe has been written for the C-Series and G-Series machines with Variable Speed control and 64-ounce container. If you are using a different Vitamix machine or container size, you may need to make adjustments to the Variable Speed, processing time, and/or ingredient quantities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsUmp from delicious! This recipe was soon easy to make and was yummy. I made it for my neighbors who just brought their 1st addition (beautiful baby girl) home from the hospital. Though it did take a long time to bake (about 15 minutes longer but I'm at 6000ft so I had to accommodate for high altitude cooking), it was worth it. I've been requested to make it again. :-)

Rated 2 out of 5 by LauraW from Started over This recipe is EXTREMELY bland. If you are on a bland diet, it will be great. I will try again at some other point, but I will double the salt and add more cheese, pepper and other spices. You will need a strainer (not colander) for the potatoes. They don't "brown" very much and I would recommend more onion too. When I am done tweeking this recipe, I will post again...also cook time is MUCH longer than stated.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LauraW from Followed directions My first thought was "only salt", but gave it a try anyway. Put the potatoes in the Vitamix with the water, set it on 5. Potatoes were totally liquified in 10 seconds. Could not be salvaged. Threw them away. Started over. Will let you know.

How do I found out how to convert blending for a non-C series non-variable speed vitamix?
When looking at recipes from a c series to a g series the major difference is volume. If it is a small batch recipe of 2 cups or less than you will double the recipe. For frozen desserts in the G series use the ratio of 1 1/2 cup liquid to 1 1/2 lb of frozen ingredients and your dessert will come out great. All others should blend similar to that of the C series with minor adjustments to time.
