This dish is a delightful combination of savoury eggs and cheese that elevates boring potatoes to “eggs-ceptional” heights. This flavourful, filling side dish is ideal for a splendid sit down dinner or a buffet style get together!
Pre-heat oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly grease an 8-inch ( 2 L) square baking dish.
In medium skillet, cook onion and garlic in butter over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Cool slightly.
Place milk in large bowl and stir in shredded potatoes, 1½ cups (375 mL) cheese, eggs, onion mixture, green onions, salt and pepper; mix well. Pour into prepared dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Let stand for about 10 minutes before cutting into squares to serve.
Tip: Use swiss cheese in place of cheddar, or your favourite cheese. Add cooked diced ham to the mixture for a light meal version.
