1 - 12 oz. pkg. frozen Hash Brown Potatoes (thawed)
3 Medium or 2 Jumbo Eggs, beaten
1/2 cup Milk
1/4 - 1/2 cup Picante Sauce (depending on "heat level") A few dashes of Tabasco (or other Louisiana hot sauce) can also be used
1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 Green Onions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped Cilantro or Parsley
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 lb. chopped Tasso (Cajun ham) or regular ham
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into a greased 10-inch pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes until the mixture is set and golden brown. Remove, and then let it sit for 5 minutes. Then cut into 8 pieces.
Note: This is fantastic with scrambled eggs, Eggs Benedict or other breakfast dishes.
What exactly is 'Mexicajun'?
A phrase we created back in 1994, it simply means a combination of Mexican and Cajun cuisines. Cilantro and Picante Sauce are Mexican (technically, Picante Sauce is Tex-Mex), Tabasco and Tasso are Cajun.
