A hash brown breakfast casserole is perfect when you need to feed a large crowd first thing in the morning.

Layer eggs, sausage, peppers and hash browns in a casserole dish, top with cheese and bake for a perfect golden brown breakfast casserole.

Best of all, just prep it in advance and pop it in the oven in the morning.

Calories and Weights of Ingredients in Breakfast Casserole

hash brown – I use finely chopped hash browns, but any style of hash brown works well for this recipe.

sausage – I like pork sausages (such as Jimmy Dean breakfast sausages). Swap it out for turkey sausage, ham, or crispy bacon (or leftover ground beef from last night’s tacos)!

vegetable – Add peppers to this casserole, but add whatever veggies you have on hand.

cheese – Shredded sharp cheddar is our favorite, but pepper jack and other flavorful cheeses work well too. Set aside a bit of the top to get a nice golden layer of cheese.

This hash brown casserole recipe is very generous. You can change the add-in depending on your preferences and what you have on hand. Experiment with leftover meats, vegetables, and cheeses of all kinds. Just chop or shred and mix.
