Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons sunflower seed oil (divided)

  • Alexa frozen hash browns (28 oz)

  • 1 lbs breakfast sausage

  • 6 oz cheese, grated

  • 12 eggs

  • ½ cup milk of choice

Directions

  1. Prepare a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with non stick spray. Set aside.

  2. In a 10” non-stick skillet, heat up 1 tablespoon oil over medium high heat. Add in half of the frozen hash browns into an even layer on the skillet. Cover and allow to defrost for about 4 minutes. Then uncover and cook for another 3-5 minutes, or until the bottom is slightly crispy (No need to flip). Transfer to prepared baking dish. Repeat steps with other half of the hash browns.

  3. Ensure hash browns are distributed in the baking dish in an even layer. You may need to trim the hash browns just a bit in order for them to fit evenly on the bottom of the baking dish.

  4. Next, cook breakfast sausage in the same skillet until browned and cooked through. Drain thoroughly on paper towels. Sprinkle sausage on top of hash browns in an even layer.

  5. Next, sprinkle the cheese over the sausage.

  6. In a medium size bowl, whisk eggs together with milk until well beaten and evenly mixed. Drizzle egg mixture evenly on top of everything in the pan.

  7. Cook immediately in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until middle is set and top is golden brown.

  8. Alternatively, you can refrigerate unbaked casserole in refrigerator overnight. When ready to eat, put the casserole in a cold oven, and then set the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until middle is set and top is golden brown.

  9. Store in refrigerator for up to a week. Or freeze in sections for long term storage.

{For Reference: I used Monterrey jack with jalapeño cheese and oat milk}

I am a breakfast person. Always have and always will be. When I wake up in the morning, I am ready to eat something immediately. But… I also like my sleep. I am the worst with waking up early to have a leisurely breakfast. I will routinely wake up with only 20 minutes to get ready and be out the door. So my breakfasts need to something I can quickly grab and go with.

Enter: breakfast casserole

A simple and quick way to have a savory breakfast, but not take up extra time in the morning.

Once cooked, I can heat up sections in the oven while I get ready, and then wrap it up and eat it at work. Or, if I’m really running late, I will take my section to-go and heat it up in the microwave at work.

Douse on some hot sauce, or if you are unlike me and have time, the addition of avocado would also be nice!

You tell me! What do you eat in the morning?
