Breakfast Casserole

This recipe has been around a long time but it is so easy to put together and yummy, it is a favorite! You can even make it the night before, keep it in the refrigerator and bake it in the morning. We modified it using our favorite things! There are many versions so we hope you enjoy ours! This makes about 6 servings.
3 c hash browns, frozen or fresh
1 c shredded cheese
1 c cooked sausage (you could also use ham, ground beef, vegan crumbles or bacon)
1/2 shallot, diced
5 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 c milk
salt and pepper to taste
* You can also add green pepper, mushrooms, red pepper, onion...all your favorite veggies!!
  • Heat oven to 350F. Grease your baking dish, I used coconut oil and a 2 quart casserole dish. 
  • If you are using sausage or ground beef, cook your meat first, with the shallots, in a medium pan over medium heat on the stove.
  • I like to layer my casserole because I like to be in order - haha! (it's true). I put the potatoes on the bottom of the dish, then the cheese and the meat (or meatless crumbles). 
  • Whisk the eggs, then add the milk to them and whisk a few more minutes.
  • Pour egg and milk mixture over the potatoes, cheese and meat mixture.
  • Bake uncovered for 55 minutes to an hour. If it starts to get too brown around the edges, turn the oven down to 340F.
  • Remove from oven and let it stand for about 5-8 minutes before serving. Slice and serve.
I usually serve this with fresh fruit or juice and a muffin or toast. This makes a great evening meal too! Enjoy!
Love and peace,
