Sausage, Cheese, and Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

July 14, 2019

 

This scrumptious casserole is packed with all of your favorite breakfast foods.   We're talking sausage, egg, and potatoes mixed with cheddar and cream cheese.   Yum!

 

 

Hey, y'all!  You know, it's not often that I post breakfast recipes on my blog simply because I'm not much of a breakfast person.  This past weekend we made last minute plans to do brunch with some of our friends.  I think we mostly wanted an excuse to start our day off with mimosas and let our kids burn some energy by running around the house.  Typically when I make breakfast, I whip up a casserole.  Some of my favorites are Cheesy Ham, Broccoli, & Egg Bubble Bake, Crazy Simple Egg Bake, Broccoli & Cheese Egg Bake, and my ultimate favorite Jalapeno Popper Breakfast Casserole.  

 

Another one of my favorites is this Sausage, Cheese, and Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole.  Like all of my other breakfast casseroles, it's simple to throw together and it tastes incredible.  You begin by covering the bottom of a 13 x 9  casserole with shredded hash browns.  Top it with browned sausage, some cheese, and a bit of egg.  Top it with even more cheese and toss it in the oven for about 40 minutes or until the casserole is cooked through.  Oh, I nearly forgot!  This casserole actually has a secret ingredient!  I love to put cream cheese in my breakfast casseroles.  It makes it so silky smooth and really elevates the eggs!

 

 

What Should I Serve with the Breakfast Casserole?

The casserole is a meal in itself.  It's perfectly hearty however, if you're hosting a brunch you may want to whip up something else to go with it.  Some great options are Refreshing Fruit Salad, Strawberry Mini-Pancake Skewers, Lemon Cheesecake Crescent Rolls, Chicken & Waffle Sliders, or fresh fruit.

 

Can I Make this ahead of time?

 

You can totally make it ahead of time, but honestly since it's so easy to throw together- you probably don't need to.  You can prepare it up to 2 days ahead of time and keep it stored in your refrigerator.  When you're ready to bake it, simply add 10-20 minutes to your cooking time since it'll be cold.
