Ham & Cheese Brunch Squares from Pampered Chef

As I mentioned this weekend, I attended a Pampered Chef party on Saturday morning.

Here is the awesome recipe that the rep made for us at the party. The only difference is that instead of using the ham, she substituted one pound of pork sausage and it was wonderful! Definitely an A+++ recipe and perfect for overnight company and brunch! Enjoy!

Ham & Cheese Brunch Squares

1 tsp vegetable oil

2 cups grated Colby & Monterey Jack cheese blend, divided

1 pkg (22.5 oz.) frozen toaster hash brown patties, thawed (10 patties)

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

12 eggs

1/2 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper

8 oz. thickly sliced deli ham

4-5 green onions with tops, divided (1 cup sliced)

3 plum tomatoes

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly brush large bar pan with oil. Crumble has browns over pan; press gently into an even layer. Sprinkle half cheese evenly over has browns. Bake 13-15 minutes or until crust starts to brown and cheese melts.

Whisk cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add eggs and pepper; whisk until smooth. Chop ham. Slice green onions, reserving 1/4 cup of tops for garnish. Place ham and remaining onion into saute pan; cook and stir over medium heat 2-3 minutes or until hot. Stir ham mixture into egg mixture.

Remove pan from oven. Pour egg mixture over crust. Return pan to oven; bake 6-8 minutes or until center is set. Slice tomatoes in half lengthwise; scrape out seeds and dice. Remove pan from oven; top with remaining cheese, tomatoes and reserved green onions. Sprinkle with additional pepper. Cut into squares and serve.
