You won’t find many brightly colored, delicious, and extremely healthy as this one. The more calorie conscious population may just reduce the number of potatoes by half to get a thinner potato crust with fewer calories. So, get chopping, grating, and whipping to enjoy a hearty serving of healthy Farmer’s casserole.
Wash and peel the potatoes well. Use a grater to grate the peeled potatoes evenly and then squeeze out the excess water from the grated potatoes. You may also use a muslin cloth or a fine mesh to help squeeze out the water from potatoes really well.
Transfer the squeezed out potatoes in to a small bowl, cover with a transparent film and freeze it for about 10 minutes. Uncover the bowl after 10 minutes and then arrange the shredded potato at the base of a casserole dish. Evenly layer cheddar cheese above grated potatoes.
Now, evenly sprinkle the cubed chicken ham, sliced spring onion, and chopped red bell pepper over the cheese layer. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C. Crack open the eggs in to another bowl carefully. Pour the milk into eggs and season the mix with salt and black pepper powder. Whisk everything well until nicely blended. Pour egg mixture on to the chicken ham and vegetable layer gently.
Transfer the casserole dish in to the preheated oven and bake it for about 35 to 40 minutes or until the egg cooks at the center and has beautiful golden spots on top. Slice the Farmer’s casserole and serve hot!
Maintain the baking temperature and you might need to keep a watch on the casserole in the final minutes of baking. Make sure that you carefully remove the egg shells while you break the egg. A wiser technique would be to break the egg in a separate bowl first and then use that broken egg for the recipe. You may add more vegetables of your choice, such as broccoli, zucchini, mushrooms, green peas, beans etc. to the casserole as well.
