Instructions

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.

  3. Add hash browns. Layer on top 1 cup cheese, apple mixture, and turkey.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, add eggs, milk, salt and pepper, and whisk to combine.
  5. Pour egg mixture evenly into casserole dish and top with remaining cheese.
  6. Bake until center is set and edges are golden-brown, about 55-65 minutes.
  7. Optional: garnish with green onion.

 

Notes:

  1. Casserole can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator overnight. Let sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking.
  2. You can substitute leftover potatoes or stuffing from your Thanksgiving dinner for the hash browns.
