Hash Brown and Sausage Casserole - The Southern Lady Cooks

This Hash Brown and Sausage casserole is great to serve for a brunch with grits, gravy and biscuits. Your family and guests will love this sausage breakfast casserole.  It makes a wonderful holiday breakfast, too! This recipe is a favorite of my family. Easy to make and the perfect way to start the day! Reheats well too!

Hash Brown and Sausage Casserole ingredients needed:

Frozen hash browns, regular or Southern style


Green pepper

Sausage or ham (could also use bacon or smoked sausage or any meat you like.


Salt and pepper to taste

Garlic powder, Optional

Shredded cheddar cheese


I have made this breakfast casserole both in 10 inch iron skillet and a 9X9 dish. You can easily double the ingredients and make it in a 9X13 for a larger crowd.

Breakfast casseroles are great for any holiday gathering as they feed quite a few people. We love this one with sausage but you could honestly use any meat you desire. You could also serve this in tortillas, topped with salsa and sour cream. Delicious! Super versatile dish. If you love hash browns check out our Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole. It’s also great for any gathering.

“I made this last month for a family get together brunch. Everybody wanted the recipe. It was so good! Thanks” – Sherri

“We loved this delicious breakfast casserole! So easy to make and reheats well too. I made it for our Christmas breakfast, we had some leftover and it was just as good the next day!” – Kathleen

    1. I have not frozen it but I would put back in the oven on low maybe around 300 and just let it reheat, Cheryl.

  1. I made this last month for a family get together brunch. Everybody wanted the recipe. It was so good! Thanks5 stars

  2. 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!

  3. 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…

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

  5. 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.

    1. 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.

    1. 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?

  7. 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!

  8. 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

  9. 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! 🙂

      1. 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!!

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

  10. Sounds great! I don’t usually have luck with packaged hashbrowns… 🙁 but I’ll definitely try this with bacon! Thanks!

  13. I know this is supposed to be a breakfast recipe, but I might do a “breakfast for supper” and cook it tomorrow night. 🙂

  14. I’m looking forward to receiving more of your recipes, they look wonderful and easy, I hope!
