Sausage Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole

The other morning my good friend Mackenzie and I got together to make our Tuesday morning recipes. She was adamant about her “moms sausage hash brown breakfast casserole” so we decided to whip that and cinnamon roll french toast casserole together and have a delicious morning. I have to say – this breakfast casserole is AMAZING.

It was super simple to put together, with a layer of potatoes, melty cheese, hearty eggs, and the right amount of sausage for protein.

Savory, for those that don’t always love a sweet morning option, and incredibly filling. 

Scroll to the bottom for a printable version of this post, including all measurements and instructions, so you can follow along in your kitchen without being on your phone. 

Here is what ingredients you need to gather to get started: 

  • eggs
  • pork sausage (jimmy dean) or turkey sausage
  • heavy cream
  • frozen shredded hash browns – that are thawed out
  • cheddar cheese
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • garlic powder

Casserole Substitutions

Now one of the amazing things about Mom’s Sausage Breakfast Casserole is that you can really alter the layers quite simply. You can change pork sausage to turkey sausage, change frozen hash browns to tater tots, and even alter the cheese (although Cheddar is my favorite personally). 

This hash brown casserole is also great with ham, adding bits of bacon and even bears the weight of changing cream to milk if needed. 

Hash browns >>>> Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

Cheddar Cheese>>>> Any Cheese

Heavy Cream>>>> Milk

Pork Sausage>>>> Ham, Bacon, Turkey Sausage, Italian Sausage

What can you eat with Sausage Casserole?

This is such a savory dish, that having something sweet like Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole or warm Southern Fried Apples is a great choice.

How long can you keep Sausage Casserole in the Fridge?

If you are around here long, I say the same thing every time – I do not do leftovers. Its probably something from my child hood but not a huge fan. In any case, because this has a meat products, I wouldn’t keep for more than a day or two. 

Can you prep Sausage Breakfast Casserole Overnight?

Yes!

If you need a great Christmas casserole or thanksgiving morning casserole, this a perfect one to prep the night before and be ready to just pop in the oven without the mess of all the dishes. You can prep this with layering the ingredients, topping with foil, and putting in fridge overnight. 

Frozen Hashbrowns

I buy the frozen bag of hash browns from the store, but thaw them prior to assembly.

I simply leave them in the fridge after I get home from the store so they are thawed when I make the casserole.

In some stores, you can simply buy thawed hash browns *typically near the eggs* but there are very few brands that come already thawed out and can be hard to find.
