I was at one of my cooking party demonstrations a few months back and created this recipe after speaking with the husband of my host. We were discussing simple breakfast recipes and family’s sharing breakfast together. We came up with this quick and easy breakfast casserole dish that your whole family will enjoy! It’s such a versatile dish you can substitute vegetables instead of sausage or create a Mexican style dish by adding bell peppers and tomatoes with a little bit of salsa and Cilantro.
Quick and Easy Breakfast Casserole
6 Russett potatoes
1 pound pork sausage
1 medium yellow onion
4 garlic cloves, pressed
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon Chipotle rub
1/2 cup shredded cheese mixture
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray 9 x 12 casserole dish with cooking spray. Shred potatoes and squeeze excess water from potatoes in a cloth towel. Spread shredded potatoes evenly in casserole dish, bake 25 minutes or until lightly brown. In a skillet brown sausage and drain excess fat. In a batter bowl, whisk together eggs and cream. Add salt, pepper, garlic, Italian seasoning, chili powder, and Chipotle rub. Pour mixture over potatoes. Evenly spread chopped onion and pork sausage. Bake an additional 15 minutes. Sprinkle cheese mixture over the top and bake for 5 additional minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before cutting.
