Cheesy sausage hash brown breakfast casserole! It’s so easy to prep, stick in the refrigerator, then pop into the oven the next morning.

When the holiday season rolls around, I go through a cycle of emotions.

CYCLE 1.

The first cycle is pure excitement becauseOH MY GOODNESS IT’S THE HOLIDAYS! Twinkling lights are hung downtown, holiday music is playing on the radio, and the weather may evenproducea snowflake or two. It feels like a real-life fantasy.

CYCLE 2.

Then the second cycle hits. The panic. The fear. The I-HAVEN’T-STARTED-MY-SHOPPING-AND-THERE-IS-NO-TIME-LEFT freak out has me in a tizzy until I reach the last and final cycle.

CYCLE 3.

The last cycle is the breath. I take a deep breath and remind myself that the holidays are meant to be enjoyed in a positive way. There are no strict rules of how my family spends time together, only that we do.

After that, everything seems to flow along swimmingly and naturally.

When I’m in this zen-like calm, I also remember that it’s smart to keep holiday tasks like food preparation simple and easy.

One holiday tradition that my family and I have tried to stick to each year is a yummy breakfast on Christmas day. This breakfast need not be complicated, either, because I’m devout in keeping my “deep breath” mantra! So, to keep things simple and easy, I often prepare our Christmas breakfast the night before.

    This was a great recipe! We did this with vegan cheese (our youngest is dairy allergic), and it came out really nice. Would be great if you could mention a few dairy free alternatives 🙂

      Did you use unsweetened almond milk or another milk substitute? I’m looking to make this dairy free for guests and wasn’t sure if it would affect taste or texture.

      If you want dairy free then find a different recipe!

    Can I make two nights ahead and sit in the fridge for 36 hours or will it be too soggy by then?

      I’ve never tried it before, but I do think it may be soggy if kept that long.

    Delicious however cook at 400 for 60 minutes. 40 minutes is not enough and 350 left it uncooked but it was delicious.

    does this reheat well? I am taking this casserole to an Easter brunch tomorrow morning. Plan to take it out of the refrigerator and cook at my house before I go, and then – if necessary reheat when I get there. Any suggestions?

    I used o’brien potatoes and used 12 eggs and 1 cup milk, it was great.

    What adjustments would need to be made to this recipe if the hash browns were omitted? Would it need less milk? I would not adjust the cheese.

    Used almond milk and vegan cheese but other than that I followed recipe exactly and we’re at almost an hour and a half in the oven and the egg mixture is still soup at the bottom. Not sure what went wrong!

    Very good! I made it my own and used 1 lb breakfast sausage, 1 lb diced ham, green chiles, a Mexican cheese blend, and added 2 more eggs than what the recipe originally called for. I also cooked it at 400 for about 60 minutes like someone else mentioned and it turned out good, cooked through all the way. I did cut the casserole slices the last 10-15 mins of cooking and added more shredded cheese on top as well! I personally feel like making the slices in the casserole helped the egg cook through all the way to the bottom. Good recipe and I will definitely be making it again, thank you for sharing!

      So sorry about that! I would say 12 large servings, 15 regular servings. 🙂

    This sounds delicious! I’ve got it in the fridge for Christmas breakfast tomorrow morning. I used diced ham rather than sausage, and a mix of sharp cheddar and white cheddar for the cheese. Hopefully it turns out as delicious as yours sounds!
