Updated June 22, 2021

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 oz) bulk hot pork sausage
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 bag (20 oz) refrigerated O’Brien hash browns (about 4 1/2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (6 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray. In 8-inch skillet, cook sausage over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes or until no longer pink; drain.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat eggs, milk, Dijon mustard and pepper with whisk until mixed well. Stir in hash browns, 1 cup of the cheese and the cooked sausage. Pour mixture in baking dish; cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours but no longer than 12 hours.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 350°F. Remove dish from refrigerator, uncover and top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until center is just set. Cool 10 minutes before serving.

  • Top your sausage-hash brown breakfast casserole with a generous sprinkle of chopped green onion or chives.
  • Serve this hearty dish on your brunch buffet along with bacon, fresh fruit salad and cinnamon rolls.
  • O’Brien potatoes are diced and cooked with chopped green peppers and onions. They share a nice boost of extra flavor with no effort on your part. Flavored sausage, from a traditional pork breakfast grind to a spicy Italian or chorizo, play the same role—a meaty richness that rounds up the taste of a simple egg bake.
