This really is a good breakfast casserole & can be made so many different ways!
1 lb breakfast meat (sausage, ham, bacon or combination)
1 32 oz bag hasbrowns (thawed or left out at room temp)
salt & pepper to taste
1 onion, chopped
Lawrey's seasoning salt to taste
2-3 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp onion powder
Brown meat & onion until done; drain & set aside. In a mixing bowl, mix together hashbrowns, seasoning salt, salt, pepper & onion powder. Place mixture in lightly greased 9x13 casserole dish. Sprinkle with half cheese mixture then spoon sausage mixture over cheese.
5 eggs beaten
3 Tbsp milk or half & half
1/2 tsp dry mustard
Mix together eggs, dash of salt & pepper and 3 Tbsp milk. Pour mixture over sausage. Now, it's best if you can refrigerate overnight but ok if you don't have the time! When ready to bake, sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake on 350 for 45 minutes or until eggs are set.
Because this is such a versatile recipe!! You can add in or change this up tons of ways; add mushrooms, red/green peppers (for not only flavor but color), crushed red peppers or Tabasco sauce for a little spice. You may want to use Swiss cheese if using ham as your meat or Fiesta cheese if adding peppers & Tabasco sauce & add a little Salsa while you're at it!!
