Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13x2-inch baking dish.

  • In a large bowl, combine the thawed hash browns, onion, and bell peppers. Reserve a 1/2 packed cup of cheese and mix the remaining 1 1/2 cups with the hash brown mixture. Transfer to the baking dish and smooth into an even layer.

  • In the same bowl, whisk together the eggs, Dijon, hot sauce, half-and-half, salt, and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the hash brown mixture and gently press down with the back of a spoon to help hash browns absorb the egg.

  • Cut the rope sausage crosswise into 1/4-inch slices. Lay across the top of the hash browns and gently press into the mixture.

  • Bake for 45 minutes. Remove and top with reserved cheese. Increase temperature to 400 degrees F and finish baking just until eggs are set and top is slightly brown, about 7 to 10 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped chives or parsley if desired, then serve.

Although my photo is pretty bad this was pretty good. There's room for more spices though. It was otherwise spot-on. My husband put hot sauce on his but the kids & I just ate it with some black pepper (the salt level was fine for us). Thanks for the recipe! Read More

The beauty of this dish is that not only is it tasty but it's very versatile and could be used at any meal. I cut the recipe way back because a 9x13 pan is just too much for us but it was easy to do and we had excellent results. I don't really care for mustard and I wish I hadn't added it but it was still very good. Read More

This was good but a little bland for an egg bake. It was easy to make ahead and pop in the oven when needed. Read More

It was a nice easy recipe. I felt it lacked flavor I think next time I'll try actualy browning the hash brown first and use breakfast sausage. Read More

This was delicious! Of course I did get a little heavy handed with the cheese and onions! After reading the other reviews on this I decided to add a little more hot sauce to the mix. I didn't have half and half so I mixed heavy cream and milk. I didn't have a green bell pepper so I upped the red bell. I would make this again in a heartbeat! You can do whatever you want with this recipe with add-ins (I'm thinking diced green chiles i.e.) just as long as you use that delicious Hillshire Farms sausage! It's the bomb! Read More
