Low FODMAP Breakfast Casserole
This Low FODMAP Breakfast Casserole combines frozen hash brown potatoes, eggs, cheese and ham for an all-in-one, protein-packed, low FODMAP breakfast or brunch dish that can be put together in less time than it takes to preheat the oven.
Trolling the Frozen Foods Section
I have to admit I had never bought frozen hash browns before. I am a scratch cook and it just never occurred to me, but I was going to a potluck brunch and wanted to bring something low FODMAP and high in protein and I found this recipe online and decided to FODMAP IT!™
Read Those Labels
It was easy to find frozen hash browns that were low FODMAP. The original recipe called for 24-ounces (680 g) of frozen hash browns, but my market had 30-ounce (850 g) bags, so that’s what I used. Worked great!
And since potatoes have no FODMAPs, the more the merrier!
Ham can be low FODMAP, if you know what to look out for. You can read more in our article, Is Ham Low FODMAP? Get thickly sliced ham, if you can, so that you can dice it.
Pick Your Cheese
The cheese can be varied, I like a sharp orange cheddar, both for looks and flavor, but you could use part Monterey Jack, pepper Jack, Gruyere or any other hard cheese that melts well.
Read more about cheeses and FODMAPs in our article, Is Cheese Low FODMAP?
You can dice some bell pepper or scallions and add them in. Or, a low FODMAP amount of broccoli florets (cut really tiny) are a nice addition.
You can assemble this dish the night before and refrigerate it, then just pop it in the oven. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
Low FODMAP Breakfast Casserole
Our Low FODMAP Breakfast Casserole can be prepped the night before and is the perfect dish for holidays and brunches.
- 24- ounce to 30-ounce (680 g to 685 g) package of low FODMAP frozen hash browns, about 8 to 9 cups
- 1- pound (455 g) thickly sliced low FODMAP ham, diced
- 8- ounces (225 g) sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 12 large eggs
- 1 cup (240 ml) lactose-free whole milk
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
Position rack in middle of oven. Preheat oven to 350°C (180°C). Coat the inside of a 13-inch by 9-inch (33 cm by 23 cm) casserole dish with nonstick spray; set aside.
Toss together the frozen hash browns, ham and cheese in a large bowl to evenly combine, then scrape into prepared pan, creating an even layer.
In same bowl, whisk the eggs and milk until thoroughly combined. Season with salt and pepper, then pour evenly over the potato mixture. Gently pat everything down with the back of a sturdy spoon.
Bake for one hour, uncovered or until the center is set and the edges are golden brown. Let sit for 5 minutes and serve.
- I like to serve low FODMAP hot sauce or salsa alongside. Some folks like ketchup with their eggs, and since there are low FODMAP serving sizes, why not offer it? We have a great article on Condiments, by the way.
