Your family will love this hearty Cheesy Sausage Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole, perfect for weekend brunch.
We’ve been SO busy lately. I was promoted at the day job, and we’ve had guests staying with us almost every weekend! There’s a lot that comes with having guests, making sure the house is clean is of course one of these things. The other thing is having enough food in the house! Getting breakfast with a group around our house is tough; there are only a few breakfast spots and on the weekend, the wait times will be an hour or more!
So, we always cook breakfast for our guests at home. I’ve learned that if I can put together a breakfast casserole, the cooking process is so much less stressful! I spent about 10 minutes getting the casserole prepped, and then it’s thrown in the oven. I can then make something to accompany it, or spend time chatting. My favorite breakfast casserole to serve when we have guests is this Cheesy Sausage Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole!
This is a hearty breakfast casserole, packed with hash browns, sausage, eggs, fresh Sargento® Shredded Cheese and simple seasonings. Great tasting meals start with cheese shredded fresh off the block, which is why I use Sargento® Cheese.
For this recipe, I chose Sargento® Shredded 6 Cheese Italian, which is always shredded from blocks of real, natural cheese. I think that you could also use Sargento® Shredded 4 State Cheddar Cheese or Sargento® Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese to switch up the flavor of this hash brown breakfast casserole! Make sure to purchase 2 bags of Sargento® Cheese to make these recipes!
A little step by step action for you! There’s nothing better than the crunch of the hash brown potatoes in the bottom of this cheesy sausage breakfast casserole, I promise!
