Look what’s cooking in my oven right now! It will be ready in an hour and I can’t wait! This sausage breakfast casserole recipe is a family favorite and is super easy to throw together! You can even make it the night before and store it in the refrigerator overnight! I usually make this for Christmas morning at our house and for other special occasions like Father’s Day, but this morning I made it just because!
Here’s what you need to make this yummy recipe:
1 lb of Italian pork sausage, (then cooked, drained, crumbled)
1 bag diced potatoes
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
10 eggs slightly beaten
4 cups whole milk
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
Fresh ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
1/2 cup peeled, chopped tomatoes (optional)
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Brown the sausage and crumble into smaller pieces. Set aside. Spray a 9X13 glass baking pan with non-stick spray. Place the bag of potatoes in the bottom of the pan and sprinkle with some cheese. Beat the eggs slightly and then add the milk, dry mustard, salt, and onion powder, and mix together. Pour the egg mixture over the potatoes. Sprinkle the sausage over the top of the egg mixture. Cover with cheese.
Bake uncovered for approximately 1 hour until the egg mixture is well cooked.
