Ingredients

  • 2 lb bag frozen hash browns, thawed (see notes below)
  • 1 lb pork breakfast sausage, sage or spicy
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 8 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
  • Spray 13 x 9 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a sauté pan, cook onions and brown and crumble sausage.
  • Drain any excess grease. If you’d like, you can just take crumbled sausage out of pan, leaving the grease, and then brown the hash browns a bit, this adds nice flavor to the casserole.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, 1 cup of shredded cheese and salt and pepper.
  • In a baking dish, spread hash browns into bottom of dish.
  • Spread cooked sausage on top of hashbrowns.
  • Next, pour egg mixture on top of that.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cup of cheddar cheese on top.
  • Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 30 minutes.
  • Take foil off and bake for additional 10 minutes. Just keep an eye on it to make sure the cheese doesn’t brown up too much.

Notes

*Cook's Note: Make sure your hashbrowns are thawed and dried. Pat them dry with a paper towel. You don't want that extra moisture to make your casserole runny. For an added layer of flavor, try browning the hashbrowns in a pan before putting them in the baking dish.
Like most casseroles, this is perfect to make the night before to have ready to bake the next morning!
