Sausage and Hash Brown Bake

Pin It

Back in 2009 my parents got remarried and we had a lot of family attending from New York. My brother and sister-in-law hosted brunch the following day at their house, and I volunteered to make a bunch of different dishes. I came across this recipe and decided to try it out. Man oh man, am I glad I did. It's a real crowd pleaser and super easy to make. 

You can fool any guest and have them think it took you hours to prepare, but in reality it takes a total of ten minutes! Half the recipe for a family or double it for a potluck, it's sure to put a smile on everyone's face. You can even make it the night before and just pop it in the oven the next morning. How perfect is that!?

It's really addictive, so even if you're just making it for your family making double won't hurt anyone. I made it again for a friend's birthday breakfast the other weekend and the six of us cleared the dish. I'm positive you will, too!

Makes 12 servings

  • 2 packages (12 oz. each) bulk sausage
  • 4 cups Simply Potatoes Southwestern Hash Browns OR
    • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
    • 3 cups hash brown potatoes
    • 1 cup bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Bisquick
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 4 eggs

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 13x9 inch baking dish.

Cook sausage in large skillet over medium heat. If using onion and bell pepper separately, add this to the sausage mixture to cook. Cook until sausage is no longer pink; drain.

Stir together sausage, hash browns and 1 1/2 cups of the Cheddar cheese. Pour into baking dish.

In a separate bowl, stir together Bisquick, milk, pepper and eggs until blended. Pour into baking dish over sausage mixture.

Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake until cheese melts. Cool for 5 minutes.
