A delicious crowd-pleaser for brunch. Can also be made the night before and refrigerated, then baked in the morning.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Prick potatoes several times with a fork and place onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are soft, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Remove potatoes from oven and let cool until safe to handle, at least 15 minutes.

  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a casserole dish or 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer sausage to a bowl. Saute onion in the same skillet until translucent, about 5 minutes. Transfer onion to the bowl with the cooked sausage.

  • Mix eggs, half the Cheddar cheese, milk, salt, and pepper into the bowl with the sausage mixture.

  • Grate potatoes and add to the bowl of sausage mixture. Pour mixture into the prepared dish; place remaining Cheddar cheese on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is heated through and cheese is melted and bubbly, about 35 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Turkey sausage can be substituted for the pork sausage.

I made this breakfast casserole for dinner...along with grits, orange slices, and biscuits. Delicious casserole! The thing I like best about this recipe is that it uses real potatoes (which I usually have) and not frozen hash browns (which I never have). Read More

This recipe was tasty. I weighed the potatoes and ended up using 3 medium potatoes. If I make it again I will bake it 20 to 25 minutes. 35 minutes was too long. Read More

This was really yummy and I liked that I could use fresh potatoes instead of frozen hash browns. The cooking instructions didn't work well, though, as I ended up with skinless baked potatoes instead of something I could "grate". I just sliced and chunked and they still worked. Family loved it!
