I got an email from a Sunday School class member this afternoon wanting to know my recipe for the breakfast casserole I took to our class brunch this morning. It has made my day to know that it brought joy to someone else. Cooking is one of my hobbies and something that is relaxing and fulfilling. So, in the hopes that you will enjoy it as much as Laura did…
Susan’s Breakfast Casserole
1 stick of butter
1 pkg. Simply Potatoes Shredded Hashed Browns
1 lb. breakfast sausage, cooked and crumbled
2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, mexican mix, pizza blend – your call)
1 c. milk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Pour 1 stick of melted butter into a 9×13 pan and line the pan with the potatoes. Sprinkle the top of the potatoes with salt and pepper. Bake this layer for 20 minutes.
Remove pan from oven and lower heat to 350 degrees.
Sprinkle cooked sausage on top of potatoes, then top with cheese. Beat together eggs and milk (season with salt and pepper) and pour over top. Pop back in the oven for 30 minutes.
Remove, and let sit for 5 minutes before slicing.
This is a great bake-ahead if you have a busy week. Make it on Sunday, and pop a piece in the microwave for 1-2 minutes for a hot breakfast even if you’re short on time.
