Breakfast Sausage Casserole!

Good evening bloggers! We have a hidden jem here tonight. This is a dish that is an undercover agent. It doubles as both a breafast dish... and a dinner dish. It would even be suitable as a brunch dish, so technically, it's a triple agent? Anyway, we are dealing with a sausage casserole today. Let's put on our super spy glasses and our aprons and let's get cooking!

Breakfast Sausage Casserole

You will need:

  • 1 pound sage flavored breakfast sausage
  • 3 cups shredded potatoes, drained and pressed
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 12 ounces mild Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup onion, shredded
  • 1 (16 ounce) container small curd cottage cheese
  • 6 jumbo eggs

Are you ready? Let's get to it!

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 
  2. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch square baking dish. 
  3. Place the sausage in a large, deep skillet. 
  4. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. 
  5. Drain, crumble, and set the sausage aside. 
  6. In the prepared baking dish, stir together the shredded potatoes and butter. Line the bottom and sides of the baking dish with the mixture. 
  7. In a bowl, mix the sausage, Cheddar cheese, onion, cottage cheese, and eggs. 
  8. Pour over the potato mixture. 
  9. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into center of the casserole comes out clean. 
  10. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
  11. Enjoy!

I hope you all have a spiffy evening and a great morning tomorrow. I leave you all with a parting gift (which by the way, I am going to start doing daily). Happy blogging and check out the video below!
