HASH BROWN & SAUSAGE BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

 

TSLCHashbrownBreakfastCasserole

This is a great recipe to serve for a brunch with grits, gravy and biscuits. Your family and guests will love it.  Makes a wonderful holiday breakfast, too! This recipe is a favorite and I make it often. I am republishing and updating photo today.

2 lbs. frozen hash browns, regular or Southern style
1 onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped
2 lbs. sausage or ham (could also use bacon or smoked sausage or any meat you like.
10 eggs beaten
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, Optional
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Oil for cooking hash browns
Heat oil, add hash browns, onion and peppers. Cook till potatoes begin to brown. Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray. Spread potato mixture in pan, top with cooked sausage or ham. Pour beaten eggs over all and season with salt and pepper and garlic. Gently stir to coat all ingredients with eggs. Sprinkle with cheese. Can refrigerate overnight and then bake.
Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. Makes 8 servings.  Enjoy.

Note: You can make half this recipe, too. You can use any kind of meat you like.

You might also like my garlic cheese grits and buttermilk biscuits.

  1. So, actually, you could stir everything (except the cheese) in a big bowl and then put it in the pammed pan….right? I am a little sloppy and would make a mess if I stirred all this stuff in a 9×13!

  2. I am looking for good “heat and serve ” breakfast muffins that I can freeze. My husband leaves for work at 5:45am and I don’t want breakfast til later in the morning. I am going to make this and put it in muffin tins. Then I will bake then freeze.. I hope it works because this sounds great!!!

    • There are lots of muffin recipes on the site. Just look on the right hand side of any page under breads and they are listed there. You can freeze just about any of them.

  3. Do you thaw the potatoes before browning? Thanks!

  4. Love your site..I have several recipes like this one and they all mix the eggs with milk. Your recipe does not include milk. Is that an oversight or you just don’t use any milk. Just wondering…

  5. I recently saw a very easy recipe for Peanut Butter balls – Buckeyes. Could you direct me to it again please? Thanks

  6. I made this today (11.25.13). Used Ore Ida O’brien hashbrowns and added a fresh jalapeno and served with flour tortillas. Was wonderful and family gobbled it up.

  7. […] For a hearty breakfast check out The Southern Lady Cooks Hash Brown and Sausage Casserole […]

  8. Nothin finer than a Southern lady and a bonus for one that is a kick-but cook too.

    • I also use link sausage cut in pieces for that recipes of such a nature.
      It was a great dish in the old days for the residual of people left over from the party the night before.

  9. You can use Potatoes O’Brien instead of plain hash browns it already has onions and bell peppers in it

  10. The link to the garlic cheese grits is broken.

    • I checked the one on Facebook and the one on the recipe index and they are both working. Which one are you talking about, Kathryn?

  11. In Boy Scouts we call this a Mountain Man Breakfast and baked it in a camping Dutch oven. We use fried Tater Tots in place of the hash browns and also add a jar of salsa under the cheese. Eat it plain or rolled up in a flour tortilla … always good!

  12. I think in going to make this for my co-workers Friday…We cook every Friday and we all bring a dish

  13. On gosh! This sounds amazing! This would make a great breakfast for supper too. We are talking eggs at Saturday Dishes. I’d love for you to bring this over. http://www.tumbleweedcontessa.com

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

  14. Can this be made ahead and frozen?

  15. I am glad someone asked the question about stirring the eggs into all ingredientsI throught you meant just the seasonings I am going to make this

  16. Thank you for all of your feedback! I hope you have a great weekend!

  17. Do you use the shredded hashbrowns or can you use the other kind (the ones in the shape of little squares….sorry, for the life of me I can’t remember what they are called!). Thank you! :)

    • You can use either one. I use the country style but have used them all in the past.

      • Thank you…would you still brown the hashbrowns if not using the country style? Also, when you say to gently stir the ingredients with the eggs you don’t mean with the hashbrown layer, do you? Sorry, I’m not the best cook so I want to make sure I’m doing it right! Thanks, again!!

      • Yes, you still brown the hashbrowns. Yes, you stir the egss into all the ingredients.

  18. Sounds great! I don’t usually have luck with packaged hashbrowns… :-( but I’ll definitely try this with bacon! Thanks!

  19. You are one great cook and person!
