- 1 lb bulk sage pork sausage
- 1 cup green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 cup red bell pepper, chopped
- 10 eggs
- 2 cups whole milk
- ¼ tsp ground black pepper
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 3 cups frozen country-style hash browns
- 1 cup French’s crispy fried onions
- 8 oz cheddar cheese
- hot sauce, optional
First, brown the sage pork sausage on a nonstick pan on medium heat. Add the bell peppers to the pan and cook until they are soft. This adds a colorful touch to the casserole, but add any other vegetables that you prefer.
Second, whisk enough eggs in a bowl with whole milk. Start assembling the casserole by greasing the pan with cooking spray. The first layer of the casserole should be half of the hash browns since there will be two layers. Then, add the sausage mixture, fried onions, and cheese. Repeat the process. Pour the egg mixture on top and it’s ready to bake in the morning.
Some things to note: let the casserole sit in the fridge overnight, and before cooking, let it sit out 20-30 minutes before baking.
Bake the casserole at 350F for 40 minutes uncovered. Then, cover with foil and bake for 10 more minutes. This breakfast casserole recipe is perfect for those that like to prepare things the night of so you’re not scattering around in the morning to cook something.
