To compliment the Green Egg pretzel cookies, we decided that we needed some actual eggs, and ham as well. We purchased two delicious quiches from Costco, and then made my mom’s famous sausage breakfast casserole.
Since the baby shower was at 10:00 AM, it was the perfect addition to our little brunch fest. We had originally planned to put ham in this casserole, but forgot in the end, but that’s okay. Sausage is way better, and I don’t even like ham 😉 So we just pretended like there was ham, and it was almost all gone by the time the shower was over.
This casserole is made quite often — Father’s Day, Easter, Christmas…you get the idea, basically perfect for holidays when you don’t want to get up early to cook (or any time really!) You have to make it the night before, but it’s perfect to just throw in the oven the morning you want to use it, and it’s just so darn tasty. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it. The best part of it is, it is so, so easy.
- 1 pound Italian Sausage
- ½ cup onion, diced
- ½ cup green pepper, diced
- 4 cups frozen, shredded hash browns
- 8 eggs

- In separate bowl, whip eight large eggs, and 1 and ¼ cup milk, salt and pepper together, and pour over hash brown mixture.
