  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.

  5. In a large bowl, stir together three-fourths of chopped bacon, bell pepper mixture, egg yolk mixture, hash browns, and 1 cup cheese. Spoon mixture into prepared dish. Top with remaining 1 cup cheese.
  6. Bake until hot and bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped egg whites, remaining chopped bacon, and remaining 2 tablespoons green onion. Garnish with paprika, if desired. Serve immediately.
