Sausage Breakfast Casserole

I’m writing this up on a cold and rainy Friday morning. It’s been a busy week and we’re all ready for a nice relaxing weekend. I thought the perfect way to start would be a nice hardy breakfast Saturday morning. Tonight before bed, I’m going to assemble our favorite breakfast casserole with sausage, eggs and hashbrowns. It will spend the night in the fridge and go into the oven as soon as I wake up in the morning.

That’s one of my favorite things about breakfast casseroles. All the work can be done the night before because let’s face it… this wouldn’t happen first thing in the morning if it involved anything more complicated than turning on the oven and pushing the casserole dish in.

And there’s another benefit to fixing this for breakfast. The yummy smell coming from the oven will get the rest of my family up and moving without complaint. Ready to give it a try? Here’s one of my family’s favorite Breakfast Casserole recipes.
