Baked Fritata Breakfast Casserole

This was just a last minuted, throw-together-in-time-for-dinner-on-a-busy-day kinda meal.  And we ended up loving this dish!  It would be perfect for a brunch as well, or an Easter Morning breakfast.  So delicious.

{What you need}
2 1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled
1/2 large onion
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 cup Bisquick
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
{that is about half of this recipe}
8 eggs, beaten
2-3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 small can diced green chilies, drained 
sour cream, guacamole, salsa, bacon bits, green onions, tomatoes, etc

Boil the potatoes for about 15 minutes, until they are soft.  Drain and put back in the pot.  With a cheese grater, grate the onion into the potato pot.  Add the 2 beaten eggs, Bisquick, salt and pepper.  Mash and mix until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.  Grease a 9x13 casserole dish and mold the potato batter into the bottom of the dish.  Mix together the 8 beaten eggs, cheese, and green chilies and pour in the casserole dish over the potato dough base.  Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes, or until the center of the casserole no longer jiggles.  Serve hot, topped with your toppings of choice.
