Happy Tuesday! My friend Bethany Crisp and I have decided to do a food theme the third Tuesday of every month to feature a Tasty Tuesday idea. She will be featuring something on her blog, and I will be doing the same. Bethanys blog is called Crisp Collective and we have been friends for years. She is witty and has a heart of gold. You will love her! We are both very busy moms who share a passion for food but we are far from gourmet chefs! We are just plain janes having a good time. The recipes we will share are quick and easy, so we hope you enjoy.
We decided to kick this off with a Tasty Tuesday – Christmas morning dish. My dish is a 5 ingredient Sausage Hash Brown Casserole. The best part of this dish that you can prepare this dish the night before, cover and refrigerate and all you need to do the next morning is pop it in the oven for 35-40 minutes. This will allow you and your loved ones some time to start opening your Christmas presents while this dish is cooking . Then after all the madness of unwrapping gifts, you can settle down for a healthy and yummy breakfast. It is really yummy and so easy to make. Plus, the entire family will love it too.
Here is what you will need:
- 2 lb hot breakfast sausage (we used mild because we have twins)
- 1 (30-32oz) bag of frozen shredded hash browns
- 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
- 8 eggs
- 2 cups of milk
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees, unless making it the next day, then skip this until next morning.
- Cook your breakfast sausage in a skillet until no longer pink.
- Drain fat and set the sausage aside.
- Add hashbrowns to the same skillet, and cook until lightly brown.
- Place hashbrowns in the bottom of a lightly greased 9×13 inch pan.
- Sausage on top of hashbrowns. Top with cheese.
- Whisk together in a seperate bowl- eggs, salt, pepper and milk. Pour over the hash brown mixture.
- Now bake for 35-40 minutes. OR if you are cooking the next morning, cover and refrigerate.
- Pour yourself a glass of coffee or drink of choice and enjoy!
