  • Rinse shredded potatoes in a colander with cold water; drain and squeeze potatoes to remove liquid.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add potato. Season potato with salt and pepper; stir. Place a cover on the skillet and cook until potato is tender, about 3 minutes.

  • Heat a separate skillet over medium-high heat. Cook sausage in the skillet, breaking with a spatula into crumbles, until completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir potatoes into the sausage and remove skillet from heat. Spread the sausage and potato mixture into the prepared casserole dish.

  • Beat eggs and cream together in a bowl; add Gouda cheese and stir. Pour the egg mixture atop the sausage and potato mixture.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the egg is set, about 25 minutes.

This was a great quick casserole option. Doubled the recipe which fit in a 9x13 casserole dish. I used frozen already shredded hashbrowns (defrosted). One bag was perfect for a doubled recipe. Read More

I am not a fan of hash brown potatoes so that may be why I wasn't thrilled with this recipe. Perhaps I'll substitute Crispy Crowns if I make this one again. I served it with Crunchy Edamame Toast http://reluctantentertainer.com/crunchy-edamame-toasts/ and it was edible but not much more. Read More

Wowzers!! This was surprisingly great!!! I added 6 slices of bacon in and cooked it with the sausage. I added onion powder to the potatoes. I didn't have shredded Gouda only slices so I laid it over top of the eggs at the end and this was great! Very yummy and easy! Great on Christmas morning!! I chose this recipe because all the wet bread in the other recipes sounds gross to me so I wanted one with potatoes not bread.???? Read More

Very easy and straightforward recipe. I used the food processor grater attachment to grate to potatoes. Then into cold water in the salad spinner. Rinsed the potatoes and spun them dry. I cut this recipe in half and the bake time was 20 minutes at 350 in a small 5 x 7" casserole dish. Half a recipe should have been enough for 3 people but actually served 2 big eaters. Thanks for a great breakfast! Read More

Delicious! I added onions when cooking the potatoes. I served this to guests; it was filling and they asked for the recipe. It's not often my husband shows interest in new recipes but he did this one! I KNOW that means HE LIKED IT! Read More

I used a mild sausage and added 1 tsp sage 1 tsp oregano 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp black pepper. I used 3 potatoes as I was concerned about having enough to fill the pan and I lost some during the rinse/drain step. I would definitely use a 3rd small potato again for that reason. Also substituted provel for the gouda. It was creamy and smooth. I would definitely make this again. Read More

This was amazing with no pre-fab ingredients. I used ham (because I can't get breakfast sausage here in Germany) for Easter Breakfast and it was very good! Read More

This is a great recipe! Been looking a while for a breakfast casserole recipe that didn't include bread in it. I added chopped onion & minced garlic to my shredded potatoes & used Gouda & sharp cheddar mixed. Read More

I made it twice with different cheeses and sausages. I learned that it's best not to have too much extra cheese and for some reason the maple flavored sausage was a nice counterpoint to the cheese. I added gruyere and it was good just had to cut down the amount of cheese. Egg sets up nicely. One time I didn't cook the potatoes long enough so remember to cook it well. We served it to kids so only the adults used sriracha and it was very tasty. Read More
