Egg Sausage & Hashbrown Bake


So before all of you go "New Years Healthy" on me, I have to throw out one more indulgence.  Hurry up and go make it before Tuesday rolls around.  We all know that calories don't count between Christmas and New Years Eve.  But the second we hit 2013, it is nutritional law to be good little girls and boys once again.

I hoped you enjoyed your healthy eating holiday as much as I did.  I partied it up :)
This recipe has been kicking around my recipe box for 15 years and the way I make it now has very little resemblance to the original.  It is a great recipe for feeding a lot of people breakfast and being sure they are full until lunch.
I usually use shredded hashbrowns when I make this, but the grocery store was all out so I used cubes.  I definitely prefer the shredded potatoes instead!
 
Egg Sausage & Hashbrown Bake
1 pound sausage, browned
10 eggs
3/4 C milk
5 C frozen hashbrowns, thawed
5 green onions, chopped
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with nonstick spray.
2.  In a large bowl, beat together the eggs and milk.  Add all the remaining ingredients and mix together.  Pour into the prepared casserole dish and if desired, top with a bit more cheese.  Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the center does not wiggle when you shake the dish.

I like egg bakes like this one. They are so great for breakfast or brunch or anytime of the day.

There has to be a way to do this with less eggs. Any suggestions?

Well, you can always reduce the amount if eggs, but then you need to reduce all the other ingredients. The eggs are the glue that holds this dish together. You will want to use a smaller dish as well.

Thank you soooooo much for a great recipe!! Not only is this sooo simple but very delicious too. I have made this soo many times in the past few months that I think I've just about memorized it! LOL I bake it almost exactly as is but add some more cheese(usually double--2C), add a little bit garlic salt & onion powder--such a hit anywhere & anytime I make it. Making one right now for a ladies church bible study, gotta be fed spiritually & physically :)
