Easy Breakfast Casserole

Easy Breakfast Casserole

This breakfast casserole can feed a crowd…or at least cover your family’s breakfasts for a few days. We ate the casserole by itself for the first couple of days and then transitioned to rolling up a slice of the casserole in a tortilla for quick breakfast tacos on the go the next couple of days.

This dish was cheesy and full of potato-y (Can we just go ahead and make that a word? ) goodness. With tasty turkey sausage, just enough egg, and a few seasonings, we absolutely loved this egg and potato breakfast bake and will definitely be throwing it into our regular rotation on busy weeks.

Ingredients:

  • 12 eggs
  • 3/4 cup half & half
  • 20 ounces frozen Ore-Ida Diced Potatoes
  • 1 pound turkey sausage (or breakfast sausage of choice), cooked
  • 8 ounce block of sharp cheddar cheese (or cheese of choice), grated
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a large casserole dish (I used a 9 x 13 glass Pyrex) with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.
  2. Season potatoes with seasoned salt, onion powder, and garlic powder and heat in a skillet until mostly cooked through (the potatoes will continue cooking after the casserole has been assembled and placed in the oven).
  3. Prepare sausage until cooked through.
  4. Combine sausage and potatoes and pour into prepared casserole dish.
  5. In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs and combine with half & half and half of the shredded cheddar. Pour over the sausage and potatoes. Top with additional shredded cheddar.
  6. Bake for 35 – 45 minutes. Remove from oven when casserole is set, cooked through and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
  7. Allow casserole to rest for 15-20 minutes.  Serve and enjoy!
