I have another breakfast recipe for you to use up leftover Easter ham. If you don’t have leftovers, you can just pick some up from the grocery store.
Now I am always hesitant of any recipe being called the best. So many recipes can be awesome so I hate to call one the best. I do think this one is worthy of this title. It really is amazing. It doesn’t eliminate other awesome recipes but if you have to pick just one, this could be it.
This recipe doesn’t really have anything too crazy in it. I think the ratio of eggs to hashbrowns is part of the reason this is so good. Of course, ham adds amazing flavor. However, the one ingredient that really makes this taste fabulous and worthy of “the best” title is the pepper jack cheese. It adds just the right amount of bite. It’s not to spicy, but just adds the perfect amount of flavor to the best overnight hashbrown casserole.
