Hash Brown Bake with Eggs & Smoked Salmon

Monika and I decided to meet up one weekend to make a wholeeeee ton of food so we wouldn’t have to worry about cooking and would have at least somewhat nutritious (and if not nutritious, at least it was home-cooked!) meals for the rest of the week (if not more, because the lovely thing about casseroles is that they can be frozen! Hooray hooray!). That was a long sentence.

Monika pilfered this from a magazine at the doctor’s officer (“No shame!”) and after we made it, we split it in half, so I’m basing the nutritional content off of 12 servings (they’re gonna be small-ish but glorious servings).
