1 9x13-inch casserole


  • cooking spray

  • 2 pounds bulk spicy breakfast sausage

  • 2 pounds frozen hash brown potatoes

  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 (7 ounce) can green chile peppers (Optional)

  • 8 large eggs

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Cook and stir sausage in a hot skillet over medium heat until crumbly and no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease, and transfer sausage to a bowl.

  3. Add hash browns to the skillet; cook in the residual grease, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  4. Transfer hash browns to the prepared baking dish and spread in an even layer across the bottom. Sprinkle cooked sausage over top, then layer with Cheddar cheese and chile peppers.

  5. Whisk milk, eggs, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder together in a bowl. Pour over hash brown mixture.

  6. Bake casserole, uncovered, in the preheated oven until bubbly and the top is golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Cover and refrigerate casserole after step 4 if baking later.
