Recipe Ingredients:

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
2 (28-ounce) packages frozen hash brown potatoes with onions and peppers, thawed
1 (1-ounce) package dry ranch dressing mix
1 cup (4-ounces) freshly shredded Parmesan cheese - divided use
1 cup (4-ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese - divided use
8 large eggs
4 scallions (green onions), thinly sliced

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Coat a 13x9x2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
