September 17, 2011: Breakfast Egg, Sausage and Hash Brown Bake


Bookmark and Share
We’ve got friends visiting this weekend and whenever they come up to the Mountain, we tend to stay very busy doing things. This morning I needed a breakfast I could bake while getting ready so I came up with this recipe, which fit the bill perfectly!

Breakfast Egg, Sausage and Hash Brown Bake

12 ounces breakfast sausage (such as Jimmy Dean)
½ half medium-sized yellow or white onion, diced
2 cups frozen hash browns
8 eggs
2 T. milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 ½ cup grated cheese (cheddar, Colby Jack, pepper jack – whatever your preference)

In a cast iron or other skillet that can withstand oven temps, brown the sausage and the onions. Remove to a paper plate or paper towel-lined dish with a slotted spoon. Leave about one tablespoon of grease in the pan.

Place the hash browns in the bottom of the pan. Top with reserved sausage and onion mixture. Whisk eggs with milk and seasonings; pour over the top of the potatoes and sausage. Top with cheese.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes, or until eggs are set and the casserole is completely heated through.

Serves 4.
