Today, on Redhead Mom, I’m sharing a partnered blog post about Easy-to-Make Breakfast Casserole Recipe.

Breakfast Casserole Recipe

On our property, we have a variety of chickens. That means we get to enjoy farm fresh eggs on a regular basis. One of my favorite brunch recipes to make for my family is the Easy-to-Make Breakfast Casserole Recipe. You can use farm fresh eggs or eggs from the grocery store. Either way, it is delicious and sure to be a crowd pleaser and family favorite!

INGREDIENTS

  • 10 large eggs
  • 1 lb. frozen Ore Ida hash brown potatoes (I use the shredded kind in the freezer bag)
  • 1 tube of Jimmy Dean Country Style sausage
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or as much as you’d like)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 stick of butter
  • Salt

 

DIRECTIONS

1 – Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray 9×13 casserole dish with butter flavored PAM cooking spray. I really like this because it gives the base of the casserole a buttery flavor and also prevents it from burning and sticking to the casserole dish.

2 – Spread the hash brown potatoes in the base of the casserole dish. In my recipe, you don’t need to thaw the hash brown potatoes. I’ve heard some people say that you need to thaw them, but it isn’t necessary. I have run into the problem of trying to get the shredded potatoes separated. The easiest way to do this is to let them sit on the counter for about five to ten minutes, and then dump them into the casserole dish. You’ll find they are pretty easy to break up with your fingers.

3 – Melt a stick of butter in the microwave and then drizzle over the hash brown potatoes. I use a microwave safe bowl with a lid when I melt mine so it doesn’t spatter all over.

4 – Cook up a tube of the Jimmy Dean Country Style Sausage in a pan on the stove. Once the sausage is cooked, set it to the side. I didn’t have much grease in mine so I didn’t have to drain it, but if you have grease, you might want to drain yours or use a slotted spoon to move the sausage from the pot to the casserole dish. Spread the sausage evenly over the hash brown potatoes.

5 – Spread the shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the sausage crumbles.

6 – Whisk together the 10 eggs in a bowl. Once the eggs are whisked together, add 1/2 cup milk and mix again. Pour the egg mixture over the sausage and cheese mixture.

7 – Place the casserole dish in the oven. Use your watch (learn more) or smart phone to time the casserole so it bakes for 45 minutes or until a knife (learn more) inserted comes out clean.

8 – Let the casserole stand for 15 minutes. This gives it time to set and cool down.

9 – Enjoy your breakfast casserole! It’s a great dish to share with family and friends, too! Be sure to cover the casserole dish with foil and have oven mitts to carry it if you’re driving in your car and delivering it to family and friends who don’t live with you.

This is a very easy recipe to make and you can even get the kids involved in helping put it together. You can also add any ingredients you like, but keep in mind that the more ingredients you add in, the longer you’ll want to cook it. Enjoy!
