Thanks to J-M for posting this breakfast casserole recipe. You can refrigerate this casserole overnight, but take it out of the refrigerator about 15 minutes before baking.

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 1/2 pound spicy or mild pork sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cups frozen diced hash brown potatoes, thawed (about 16 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • mild salsa, optional


In a large skillet, cook sausage and onion, breaking up sausage with a spatula. When sausage is cooked through, drain off excess fat.

In an 8x8x2-inch square baking dish, layer the hash brown potatoes, half of the shredded cheese, browned sausage and onion mixture, and remaining shredded cheese.

In a bowl, combine eggs, milk and pepper; pour egg mixture over cheese.

Bake, covered, in a 350° oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Transfer casserole to a wire rack and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes.

Cut into squares. Serve with salsa, if desired.
Serves 6.

Perfect brunch casserole, Member linnea24

I have made this a number of times and it has met rave reviews each time. So easy, so tasty, and perfect for brunch because you can make it the night before. Great recipe. I often double it and make a 9x13 for a larger group.
