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.
1 pound hot pork sausage
1 Tbsp dried minced onion flakes
2 ½ cups frozen cubed hash browns
5 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 ¾ cups milk
1 cup Bisquick
¼ tsp salt
¼ 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.
