Hash Brown and Egg Casserole

Rated as 4.4 out of 5 Stars

"This is my family's recipe that has been handed down through the years. We've always used the maple flavored pork sausage but any kind is good. This casserole is a nice and cozy breakfast or brunch meal that everyone will enjoy. It's got the perfect taste with lots of cheese. Yum! Be sure to use a baking dish that is deep enough to cover with aluminum foil."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2 quart baking dish. Place the hash brown potatoes in the bottom of the baking dish.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat and cook and stir the sausage and onion until the sausage is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink; drain. Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, milk, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and pour over the potatoes. Layer with half the Cheddar cheese, the sausage mixture, and the remaining Cheddar cheese. Cover with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove cover; return casserole to the oven and bake until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 10 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

I toss the frozen hashbrowns with 3 tablespoons melted butter and bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients. This eliminates the bland potato taste and ...

Just made this, but it is still in the oven cooking so can't attest to the taste. However, I never could have fit this all into a 8 x 8 pan. Had to use 2 8 x 8 pans for everything to fit in.

Delicious! I liked the idea of combining the potatoes and eggs into one dish. After reading some of the reviews I doubled all of the ingredients, except for the hash browns and cheese. Since it ...

What an awesome recipe made even better by so many reviews with suggestions! First of all, I KNEW that I had to make this in a 13x9" pan. No way does this fit in a 2-qt or 8x8 pan. I chose a sto...
