Easy Sausage Breakfast Casserole

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.

Easy Sausage and Egg 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.

  • I was wandering if you could use just like pork sausage instead of Italian sausage? Just because that's what I have in the freezer :). Thanks so much.
  • Looking for a freeze ahead casserole for convience, how do you think this would do if I followed instructions and froze before cooking?
    • If you froze it, I would take it out the morning (or night before would be even better) and let it thaw in the refrigerator. Then you could just cook it according to the baking instructions once thawed. I believe this would freeze quite nicely.
  • I'm not able to find shredded hash browns in any of my local supermarkets. Would frozen, bite-sized hash browns work just as well?
