As an adult, you may start to notice that meal time gets really boring. Especially breakfast; there are not as many choices as you thought! Breakfast time can quickly get boring when all you eat are eggs, sausages, and hash browns. What if you could combine the three to create a new and unusual dish?

One casserole will easily feed your whole family and make everyone excited for breakfast again. Forget about boring oatmeal and scrambled eggs, and try this new recipe!
How to make a Sausage Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole?
Preheat the oven to 375 F degrees.
Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.
In a skillet, brown the sausage over medium heat. Break it into little pieces.
Drain the grease.
In a bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, and spices.
Put your ingredients in the dish. Start with a layer of thawed hash browns. Follow that with a layer of sausage.
Add a layer of cheese and top it with the egg mixture.
Cover the baking dish with foil.
Bake the casserole for 40 minutes.
After 40 minutes, remove the foil and bake the dish for another 20 minutes, or until the center has set.
Serve it with salsa, hot sauce, ketchup, or any dip of your choice.
Can I substitute the sausage in a sausage casserole for something else?
Sure! If you’re not a fan of sausage, you can pick any other breakfast protein. Try ham, bacon, or turkey sausage. All of these will work just as good as pork sausage. The same goes for the cheese. You don’t have to use cheddar if you don’t like it or have it at home. Use any cheese you like!
Can I prepare a breakfast casserole the night before?
Absolutely! I don’t recommend you bake it the night before, but you can absolutely prepare all the ingredients. Assemble your casserole in a baking dish, cover it with foil, and leave it in the fridge overnight. All you have to do in the morning is pop it in the oven for an hour and go about your day!
How long can I keep a sausage casserole in the fridge?
Much like other breakfast dishes, this one is not made for leftovers. Cold hash browns, sausage, and eggs don’t really do well. However, if you’d like to save some for later, you can! Keep your casserole in the fridge for no longer than two days.
