Excellent! Delicious and easy. I used bacon instead of sausage because that's what I had on hand and it turned out perfectly.

I made this over the weekend for a church breakfast. Multiplied the recipe to feed 200 people. It multiplies very easily. We used large chafing dish pans, and the baking time was a little funky - I needed to bake for almost 2 hrs, but it's the equivalent of three pans in one. I used less sausage, and created a vegetarian version by leaving out the sausage completely. I didn't cook the hash browns prior, and purchased sausage crumbles from our food service provider - they're already cooked. Will definitely make again, even if it's just for the family. Next time, going to saute a chopped onion, some garlic, some mushrooms, and maybe even some fresh spinach. Will let all of that drain out completely, and then substitute ham for the sausage. I'm getting hungry!

I followed the directions exactly as written but only added a pinch of salt and pepper. With the sausage, it isn't needed. Not sure what happened but the cook time took an extra 15 minutes. Very good though!

As written the dish is mostly a sausage and potato casserole with almost no evidence of egg or cheese. I used a single 1 pound bag of hash browns. I kept the sausage and milk the same but double the eggs to 1 dozen and tripled the cheese, including a round of smoked Gouda. Adding diced and sauteed onion (one large) and a red bell pepper, diced and sauteed in the pork drippings adds flavor and color. It doesn't need any added salt or pepper. Then it's spectacular!

I love this recipe and use it several times a month to feed a dozen men at a prayer breakfast. I double the eggs and add alittle onion and green pepper as I cook the sausage. The men love it!

I made this for the second time today and it turned out better than the first time. I modified it to what I had on hand and will definitely add it to the Christmas/Easter brunch list. I used one bag of shredded hashbrown potatoes and added onion when I pre-cooked the potatoes. I also used only one roll of breakfast sausage and 5 eggs with 1 2/3 cups of milk. The last time I made it I only used 4 eggs and it just wasn't enough. This turned out SO good.

This dish was a BIG HIT last night for our "breakfast for dinner night". I was only serving 4 people so I used 1 pound of sausage, half a bag of hash browns, 5 eggs (I wanted it to be a little more on the "egg-y" side) and 1 2/3 cup of milk and a cup of cheese. I'll just say that everyone had seconds :)

This is a delicious breakfast casserole. It can be used for brunch when having guest over. It was easy to put together. Mine came out spicy because I used hot sausage and southwest hash browns. Next time I will only use one or the other.

Baked for the first time last night for dinner. Our family is very large. I am looking for recipes that help me prepare home cooked meals and are nutritious. The recipe will be easy to adapt to our preference. It was a thumbs up around our table last night. Reheated for breakfast was a success also.

This is a good basic starter recipe for sausage and hash brown casserole. I took the advice of other reviewers and made a few changes; I added 1 med. onion and 1 red bell pepper. I also increased the cheddar to 2 cups of sharp and decreased the eggs to 5 and the milk to 1 2/3 cup and the hash browns to a 16 oz pkg. I will certainly make this again.
