I love breakfast casseroles but most of the recipes I see call for pre-packaged hashbrowns which I never have on hand. I am also WAY to lazy to shred real potatoes by hand. I came across this recipe and it called for chunks of real potato instead and I thought I would give it a try. I was really impressed with the flavor and it was very easy to make. It makes a huge pan full so it is great for company or if you want leftovers for quick weekday breakfasts.

Ingredients

5 baking potatoes (medium)
1 pound ground pork sausage
1/2 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cup shredded cheese
12 eggs, lightly beaten
salt and pepper to taste
parsley and/or chives (optional) for serving
 
Directions:
 
1. Wash potatoes and prick with fork. Microwave 4 to 5 minutes until slightly tender but still firm. Chop into small chunks (you can leave skin on)
 
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 13 x 9 ich baking dish.

4. Put potatoes and onion into frying pan and cook until potatoes are browned and onion is tender, about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove and put in the baking dish on top of the sausage.
 
5. Sprinkle the cheese over the sausage, potato, onion mix.
 
6. In a large bowl, beat eggs lightly with fork. Pour over the mixture in the baking dish.

  1. Diane,
    This would be great to make when I have guests stay over. It is hard to get up in the mornings and cook for a crowd.

    Thanks!! Even though I can’t eat it.. I have a lot of friends and family who can.

  2. Oh, that looks delicious! I’ll be pinning and stumbling this too. I rarely cook for breakfast, but it looks like it would make quite a lot of leftovers so it would be worth the effort.
