Easy Breakfast Pie

Breakfast is king in this house, especially on the weekends. We love our pancakes, and we love our savory dishes. So I am always trying to come up with new and fun ways to enjoy our breakfast staples that are still simple enough to do before I’m fully caffeinated. This easy breakfast pie fit the bill absolutely perfectly!

Frozen hash browns are a lifesaver here. I just pressed them into my well greased pie pan and baked them for 20 minutes. That helped cook them through and make them easier to firmly press into a crust when I took it out.
While the crust baked and cooled, I diced up a bunch of lovely deli ham. I’m very partial to smoked maple ham from my grocery store, but go with your favorite brand and flavor here! You could even sub in crumbled breakfast sausage or cooked bacon.
Then I just had to assemble the pie! I poured my egg mixture over the ham in the crust, then added a lovely layer of cheddar on top. I let the pie bake for 40 minutes to let it completely set and the hash browns to become golden.

The final touch came when I sprinkled lots of everything bagel seasoning on top! It melded right into the hot cheese when it came out of the oven. I sliced it into 4 pieces, so that meant we had leftovers for the next morning as well. That made us super happy because this pie was a huge hit. It had all of the things we love in a savory breakfast in one convenient slice! Hope you all love it too. xoxo

Ingredients
  • Cooking spray for the pie plate
  • 16 ounces frozen hashbrowns
  • 5 slices deli ham diced small
  • 6 whole eggs
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • everything bagel seasoning for sprinkling on top
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 and spray a 9 inch pie plate with the cooking spray. Press the frozen hashbrowns into the pan to form a crust. It will be a little tough since they are frozen and the pie plate will seem full. That's ok. Bake the hashbrowns in the pie plate for 20 minutes. Then they will be much more pliable. Press them firmly now into the plate to make room for the filling. Add the diced ham to the pie pan and let it all cool slightly while you make the egg mixture.

  2. Whisk the eggs, water, salt, pepper and cumin together in a bowl. Pour that mixture over the ham in the crust. Finally, evenly spread the cheese out on top. Bake the pie for 35 to 40 minutes, just until the hashbrowns become golden and start to brown and the filling is completely set. Take it out and sprinkle the top generously with everything bagel seasoning. Let it set for a couple of minutes, then slice it into 4 equal pieces and serve immediately! Enjoy!
