Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

We love to eat breakfast for dinner, but we actually ate this for breakfast.  We had some overnight guests and served this for an easy breakfast.  I mixed it all up the night before and refrigerated it overnight.  I just popped it in the oven when I got up and breakfast was ready in no time!  The casserole tasted great.  It was really good with a little hot sauce on top.  Next time I might mix in some green chiles or salsa in the egg mixture.  Give this a try the next time you need an easy breakfast casserole.

Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole
lightly adapted from Southern Living
(Printable Recipe)

1 pound hot pork sausage
1 Tbsp dried minced onion flakes
2 1/2 cups frozen cubed hash browns
5 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 3/4 cups milk
1 cup Bisquick
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Toppings: picante sauce or green hot sauce, sour cream

Cook sausage and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until meat crumbles. Stir in hash browns, and cook 5 to 7 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink and potatoes are lightly browned. Drain mixture on paper towels; spoon into a greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Stir together eggs, cheese, and next 4 ingredients; pour evenly over sausage mixture, stirring well. Cover and chill 8 hours.

Bake, covered with nonstick foil, at 350° for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 to 15 more minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven, and let stand 5 minutes. Serve with desired toppings.

  6. Having company in for brunch and want to fix this - I know shouldn't try new recipe on company : ) My question is if you brought casserole to room temp before baking or put it in right from the oven? Thanks.

  7. I just let it sit out on the counter while the oven preheated.

  8. This looks more like what we call Pennsylvania Dutch but we LOVE it. We have it almost every Christmas morning.
