We’ve eaten this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The best part about this recipe is that you can make it ahead of time and refrigerate or even freeze for later. You can even half the recipe or bake half now & freeze half for later.

How to Make Sausage Ranch Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

This dish is super easy to make! Start with browning some sausage. Remove the sausage from the skillet and cook thawed frozen hash browns until they start to brown. Combine cooked sausage, hash browns, and Ranch dressing. Spread into a baking dish.
Whisk together eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour over hash brown mixture. Top the casserole with shredded cheese and bake.

  • I used Jimmy Dean sausage in this casserole. I used one package of regular and one package of hot. Feel free to use all regular or all hot sausage if you prefer.
  • You can substitute turkey sausage for the regular pork sausage if you prefer.
  • This recipe uses bottled Ranch dressing, not the dry mix. I used Hidden Valley, but I also really like Ken’s Ranch dressing.
  • Here is our recipe for Homemade Ranch Dressing: https://www.plainchicken.com/copycat-outback-ranch-dressing/
  • You can make this casserole ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze for later.
  • I usually freeze this recipe unbaked. To bake after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed. Write the directions on the foil for easy reference.
  • To reheat the casserole after freezing, thaw and reheat in the microwave or covered with aluminum foil in the oven at 350ºF until warm.
  • Is Sausage Ranch Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole gluten-free? Yes! This casserole is gluten-free. Make sure to use a gluten-free ranch dressing such as Hidden Valley.

  1. Above the photo it shows serves 10…suppose it depends on how big a serving you cut/how big the appetites are 😉

  2. In your instructions, you don't mention when to add your cheese??? Does it go on top of the casserole, or mixed in with the eggs?
