As I’ve said before, breakfast is hands-down my favorite meal of the day and the weekend is the perfect time for a heartier breakfast. I have a thing for breakfast casseroles, especially when cooking breakfast for company. This one is so simple to put together and one that you and your guests will love.
Farmer’s breakfast is a country-style dish filled with sausage, eggs, potatoes and cheese.
It will make your taste buds tingle and your mouth water. Just whip it together and you will soon be enjoying a hot delicious breakfast casserole with some of your favorite ingredients!
1 pound of your favorite sausage
1 small red or green bell pepper, chopped
3 large potatoes, cooked and cubed
¾ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
½ cup milk
3 tablespoons onion, chopped
¼ cup crisply fried bacon, crumbled or bacon bits
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook and crumble sausage in skillet until done.
Drain and set aside, leaving 1 tablespoon of drippings in skillet.
To drippings add onion and green pepper.
Cook about 3 minutes.
Spread crumbled sausage in 9” casserole dish.
Place onion mixture and potatoes on top.
In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper together.
Spread egg mixture over potato mixture, top with cheese and bacon bits.
Bake covered at 350 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes until knife inserted comes out clean, removing cover during last 10 minutes.
Pam’s note: Frozen hash browns may be used; let them thaw first.
