Food Network has many easy and simple to follow brunch recipes, such as Alton Brown's frittata recipe or Paula Deen's creamy hash brown casserole. Each recipe has a total prep and cook time of less than an hour.
To make the frittata, preheat the oven to the broil setting. In a bowl, blend together six eggs, 1 ounce grated Parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and a pinch of salt. Heat a 12-inch non-stick oven-safe sauté pan over medium high heat. Add 1 teaspoon butter and let melt. Add 1/2 cup chopped roasted asparagus and 1/2 cup chopped country ham and sauté for two to three minutes. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and stir. Cook for four to five minutes or until the egg mixture has set. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves. Place pan into the oven and broil for three to four minutes, until lightly browned.
To make the creamy hash brown casserole, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly butter a casserole dish. In a skillet, melt 1/4 cup of butter. Add 1 chopped onion and cook until soft. Pour mixture into a large bowl. Add 16 ounces sour cream, 1 can cream of celery soup, 8 ounces shredded Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 30 ounces frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper. Combine. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and top evenly with 2 cups crushed potato chips and bake for 45 minutes.
