Sausage & Hashbrown Casserole

Breakfast sausage is a favorite comfort food of mine. Especially if it’s mixed in something. As a kid I would mix it into mac & cheese. This casserole is the ultimate comfort food: sausage, potatoes, & cheese. What more could you ask for? That it has a few extra servings? That a serving is under 500 calories? You could ask that, because this recipe has both. And that makes this hashbrown casserole even more of a winner.



This dish is similar to a lot of breakfast casseroles out there in that it has a breakfast meat and hashbrowns. The big difference: it doesn’t have any eggs. Don’t get me wrong those egg filled casseroles are mighty tasty. Until they’re leftover. I just can’t do reheated eggs. The texture changes in such a weird way. And what’s the point of making a massive casserole if you can’t have leftovers?



Instead of eggs as the moisture that brings everything together, I use a substitute cream of anything soup mix from Jillee at One Good Thing. It gives the potatoes a creamier feel than eggs would, and almost makes a gravy that everything lives in. Sign me up for that any day.

I have used leftover ham instead of sausage. While that is tasty, you just can’t beat Jimmy Dean’s sage sausage. I’m not picky about many brands, but breakfast sausage MUST be Jimmy Dean’s sage IMO.

Because this hashbrown casserole is delicious for any meal of the day, sometimes I’ll make this for breakfast on a Sunday. Then with all the leftovers I’ve got a head start on lunches for the week. On cold days when you don’t want to get out of bed, knowing you have this for lunch might make going to work a little easier.

If you have people over this is sure to be a crowd pleaser. This would be a great brunch dish. And with no nasty onions even picky eaters are sure to like it. Younger, pickier Casey would even eat this.
