Sausage & Egg Breakfast Casserole

This is one of the classic recipes from my childhood.  We always had this breakfast casserole on Christmas morning, and anytime when we had family overnight.  I don’t often bake for breakfast (I’m the one who’s always starving when I first wake up) so I realized I had actually never made this for Kevin!

It’s a casserole… and those don’t always look the most delicious, I know.  But trust me, this one is worth it!

Sausage & Egg Breakfast Casserole

We were actually craving breakfast-for-dinner over the weekend, so this recipe was totally perfect.  If you’re making it for morning company, you can also prepare the sausage and potatoes the night before and layer them in your baking dish so you’re not at the stove  in the morning, you’ll just want to hold off on adding the egg mixture until you’re ready to bake.  If you are adding it cold to the oven, you’ll just want to extend the cook time another 15-20 minutes.

    I’m going to try this out tomorrow with some Vegan sausage since we are mostly vegetarian. It sounds absolutely yummy.
