This dish makes a very hearty breakfast, and easily feeds a large family or group. Fortunately, it is also easy to halve this recipe. I usually serve this with a fruit salad or compote.
Easy Country Breakfast Casserole
- 2 cups frozen hash browns

- 12 eggs
- 2 cups milk
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

- Line a prepared 9 x 13 baking dish with frozen hash browns. Top evenly with cooked sausage (or bacon), onion, and green bell pepper.
- In a separate dish, mix together eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and dry mustard. Pour this over meat and hash browns.
- Top everything evenly with the grated cheddar cheese.
- Refrigerate overnight.
- Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for about 45 to 60 minutes (or until done and slightly brown).
