  • Yields: 12 Servings


Essential Tools

Slotted spoon

Instant-read thermometer


1 Tbsp vegetable oil

1¼ pounds ground pork

2 Tbsp plus 1 teaspoon Three Little Pigs All Purpose BBQ Rub

12 large eggs

½ cup whole milk

Nonstick cooking spray

1 (30-ounce) bag frozen shredded hash browns

¾ cup chopped green onions plus additional for garnish

1 cup chopped drained roasted red bell peppers (from a jar)

1 (8-ounce) package shredded sharp Cheddar cheese



1Preheat oven to 325°F. In a large skillet, add the oil and pork. Sprinkle the pork with 1 tablespoon Three Little Pigs All Purpose BBQ Rub . Cook the pork over medium-high heat 7 minutes or until browned, breaking up the pork with side of spoon. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the pork to a paper towel-lined plate.

2In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and remaining 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Three Little Pigs All Purpose BBQ Rub .

3Spray a deep 13 x 9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Into the dish, layer 1 cup of the browned pork, 2⅔ cups hash browns, ¼ cup green onions, 1/3 cup roasted red peppers and ⅔ cup cheese. Repeat the layers twice ending with the cheese. Evenly pour the egg mixture into dish.

4Cover the casserole with aluminum foil. Bake 30 minutes; uncover and bake 30 minutes longer or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the casserole reaches 160°F. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Serve garnished with green onions.


  • Get adventurous with this dish by adding chopped fresh herbs like rosemary or thyme; change up the cheese to pepper Jack or chèvre; serve topped with chopped tomatoes, sliced fresh jalapeños or chopped avocado.
  • To make ahead, cover assembled egg bake and refrigerate overnight. Bake, covered, at 350ºF for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 40 minutes longer or until center is set.
