One of the dishes I served at the Brunch yesterday was a Breakfast Casserole and had many of the ladies request the recipe. I told them I would post it on my blog. I have made several different breakfast casseroles over the years but this has to be my favorite. It is easy to make and you can make it the night before and refrigerate. All you have to do is bake it the next morning. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
2 lbs. pork sausage
1 (2 lb) bag frozen has brown potatoes
1 c minced onions (optional---I don't use)
2 cups milk
2 (8 oz) pkg. Shredded Colby-Jack cheese, divided
Salt (about a tsp.)
6 eggs, slightly beaten
Spray 9 X 13 glass baking dish. In skillet, brown the sausage; drain. (I rinse with water in a colander). In large bowl, combine sausage, hash browns, onion ( if used), milk, 3 cups cheese, salt, & eggs. Mix well and pour in the greased baking dish. Top with remaining cheese, but wait until the last 15 minutes of baking to do this. Refrigerate, covered, several hours or overnight. Heat oven to 350. Bake uncovered until knife inserted near center comes out clean (50-55 minutes). Let stand 10 minutes. Cut into squares and serve warm.
I'm off to begin taking down Christmas trees. It's not nearly as much fun taking them down as it is putting them up!!
