Cheesy Potato and Sausage Breakfast Casserole

It seems that everyone really enjoyed my last post. The amount of interest and pinning of my Blueberry Velvet cake has been overwhelming and exciting! I think it’s safe to say that we all love our dessert. Now let’s move on to my next favorite meal of the day…breakfast! I don’t enjoy a nice homemade breakfast too often (mostly because I like to sleep in on the weekends, and I’m always running late on the weekdays), but I love love love breakfast breakfast—especially brown sugar or maple sausage. I like mine a little overcooked and crispy. Together with the soft, creamy golden potatoes, this casserole is such a winner. You can even have this for dinner…breakfast for dinner, yum. Try substituting bacon or turkey sausage, or adding some green onions, peppers, or mushrooms for some variety. Just serve the whole casserole on the table for everyone to “oooh and ahhhh” over.





Cheesy Potato and Sausage Breakfast Casserole
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
 
Ingredients
  • 1-12oz package of brown sugar and honey breakfast sausage links (preferably Johnsonville)
  • About 2½ pounds yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup light cream
  • salt
Instructions
  1. Place potatoes in a pot with enough water to fully cover them. Add a good pinch of salt, and bring the water up to a boil. Boil potatoes for 10-12 minutes or until fork tender, but not overcooked. Once cooked, drain and set aside.
  2. Cook sausage according to directions. I like to broil mine, continuously turning them until crispy and browned on all sides. Once cooked, cut into bite-size pieces.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  4. In a baking dish, combine the potatoes, sausage, and 1 cup of cheese.
  5. In a bowl, whisk the egg and cream together. Add to the casserole and mix gently to full coat everything in the egg mixture.
  6. Top with the remaining cheese, and cook for about 15 minutes to melt the cheese, then place under the broiler to brown for about 3 minutes. Make sure not to burn.
