Apple, bacon, egg and potato bake

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large apple, cut into small cubes
  • 4 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh-chopped rosemary leaves
  • 2 cups frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a medium-sized casserole dish with the nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Add the butter to a skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is hot and the butter is melted, add the apple and cook for about 3 minutes, or until it softens. Remove the apple from the pan.
  3. Add the eggs to a bowl and beat them with a whisk. Add the Greek yogurt and whisk until mixed thoroughly.
  4. Season the mixture with the salt, pepper and rosemary, and mix to combine.
  5. Gently fold in the potatoes, cheese, apple and bacon crumbles into the mixture. Transfer the mixture to the casserole dish and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the eggs have set.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve warm.
