Sausage Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole


  • 1 pound hot pork sausage
  • ½ (30 ounce) package frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs, beaten


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a half-casserole baking dish or deep-dish pie plate.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.

Stir hash browns, cooked sausage, Cheddar cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl. Whisk milk, eggs, and remaining salt together in another bowl. Pour hash brown mixture into prepared baking dish; pour egg mixture evenly over hash brown mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling and golden, about 45 minutes.
