Combine frozen hash brown potatoes with sausage, eggs, and cheese for a hearty, 5-star-rated breakfast or brunch casserole that can be prepped ahead and baked the next morning. Sauté one large onion and one bell pepper in the pork drippings for extra flavor and color. Tip from the recipe developer: To make mini frittatas, cook in 6-inch cast-iron skillets for 30 minutes at 375. Top with sliced avocados, pico de gallo, and a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with green onions.
1 pound mild ground pork sausage
1 pound hot ground pork sausage
1 (30-ounce) package frozen hash browns
1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
6 large eggs
2 cups milk
How to Make It
Cook sausages in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain well.
Prepare hash browns according to package directions, using 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper.
Stir together hash browns, sausage, and cheese. Pour into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.
Whisk together eggs, milk, and remaining 1 teaspoon salt. Pour evenly over potato mixture.
Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes.
This is the perfect Cinco de Mayo breakfast that you can eat days later. It will still taste delicious. We promise.
This is my recipe submitted to Southern Living and published back in the 90s. I am happy that so many of you have enjoyed making it. I only use one pound of sausage when I cook it. I think the second pound was added by the SL test kitchen.
I have made a slight change recently you may want to consider. Instead of one large 9x13 casserole, I made a number of small containers. The one I have liked best is 6 inch cast iron fryers that I picked up at World Market. Reduce the temp to 375 and cook for 30 mins. This makes the dish more of a frittata (SP?) and looks great served with sliced avocados or other fruit, pico de gallo, and maybe a dollop of sour cream topped with sliced green onions. I wish I could post a picture to show the results! Happy cooking!
I forgot the dang milk!!! I'm making this for my daughters party in the morning . It's put together and ready to roll in the oven in the morning but I didn't add the milk with the eggs!!! What if I add two more eggs us the mmulk and pour it over the casserole . Will that be ok?
Sorry so late to the game but yes, I have frozen this after baking. To reheat I have wrapped in paper towels and into the microwave for about two minutes, then wrapped in foil and reheated in the toaster oven
