This Sausage Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole is perfect for Christmas morning. It can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until you are ready to pop it in the oven. Christmas morning is hectic enough without having to worry about breakfast. Pop this casserole in the oven when you get up and it will be ready after all the presents are open.

This casserole has all of my favorite breakfast foods. Frozen hash browns, sausage, eggs and cheese. I browed the hash browns prior to putting them in the casserole. I think it helped get the potatoes fully cooked and crispy. Feel free to skip that step if you wish. Also, I used hot breakfast sausage (Tennessee Pride) in this casserole. I think it adds more flavor, but feel free to use all regular breakfast sausage or half regular and half hot.

  1. I wanted to make a nice family breakfast, but as many know, I am no kind of morning person. I hate mornings. The only thing I want is a cup of coffee and to be left alone. That's it. However, occasionally, I like to have a nice breakfast with the family, and especially the kids love it when this happens. So I needed something that was quick to fix, and could sit in the fridge overnight, so all I would have to do is pop it in the oven in the morning and let it bake while I have coffee in solitude. So basically I wanted the best of both worlds, and I found it in this lovely casserole. It's simple, delicious, and can be put together the night before, stored in the fridge covered until morning, take it out and let it come to room temperature, about 30 minutes, and then pop it in the oven. Mine cooked for about 50 minutes before it was completely done (probably because it was refrigerated). It came out wonderfully, and everyone loved it.

  2. If you don't have milk, can you just add more cheese and/or eggs???? I am halfing the recipe…. Already made it as instructed, killer YUM alert !!!! thank youo so much, you make me LQQK good with this recipe .. My fam thanks you TQQ 😉 ~ Katherine

    1. Eggbeaters? If you don't eat eggbeaters, you might look for a different breakfast casserole. We have a ham and cheese hash brown Casserole without eggs on the blog.

  3. I made this last night to bake early this morning so the kids would have a good meal before hitting the road. Made as directed here and, wow, 5 stars! The kitchen smelled wonderful & it got rave reviews all around. I like the chorizo and mix of pepper jack & cheddar cheeses idea and will try that next time. Also needs S&P, that's it, love it!

  4. Even though I've made this recipe like at least 7 times at this point and I felt the need to finally comment! This is such a wonderful recipe and easy peezy if you make it one night and bake the next morning for breakfast. I've started making it got all my co-workers birthdays and they love it! My little bit of changes are the following: I use spicy chorizo. Then I sauté green pepper, red pepper, onion, garlic and olive oil. Then I add the potatoes until they have a little crisp. Then I do add seasoned salt to the eggs/milk mix, that is the only thing different I do there. Then level as it says and place in fridge overnight. I truly do feel this makes it better. Made it twice over 1 period of time and just didn't feel it was as good. Then bake in morning and serve with salsa and sour cream. Since you have the spicy chorizo on there it really tastes good with those added condiments really add to the flavor! Love, love, love this recipe and am so glad I found it years ago.

  5. Made this for a breakfast meeting at the office!! Turned out FAB. Added sautéed mushrooms green onion red bell pepper, rosemary and a bit of cilantro. Layered..cooked hashbrowns, sausage, veggies, cheese. Poured eggs over dish.. Ended up adding additional 2 eggs. Cooked 370 for 40 min. Amazing!!! Served with sour cream and salsa (if needed). Thank you for a great recipe!!

  6. Ok I just got done done making this and it was Amazing! I actually made it the lazy way by just throwing everything in a bowl and baking, I could only imagine how much more Amazing it would be if I had made it as directed. Thank you for an awesome recipe!!

  7. This is a great one-skillet meal, too. You cook up the sausage, set it aside, cook the hashbrowns in the same pan, then put the sausage back, stir in the eggs, and just before they set up, add in the cheese. I first learned how to cook this over a campfire in Girl Scouts; we called it "Catastrophe." (We thought the name must have been a joke, like, "What if all of the individual ingredients accidentally got cooked in the same pan? Catastrophe!")

  8. I make this same thing except we call it breakfast pizza. I use a pizza stone to mamake it. Comes out delicious and my kids love it.

  9. A+ for this recipe! I made this for a work potluck and it turned out SO GOOD!! I added green onions to it for flavor and color. I will defintely make this again. It was so great to put it together the night before and then could quickly throw it in the oven the next morning!

  10. I made this for a large group and everyone loved it. I highly recommend making it the night before and letting the flavors sit in the fridge. It was very flavorful and yummy. Will be making it again soon!
