You just need to keep a few simple ingredients on hand to whip this baby up anytime you need a dose of comfort! It’s also the perfect breakfast to whip up on Sunday and enjoy during the week with just a little microwave action.

NOTE: Updated baking times.

Ingredients needed for this recipe:

For the entire recipe ingredients, see the recipe card below.

  • Sausage – I like spicy breakfast sausage for this recipe, but mild is good if you have littles in your house.
  • Eggs – whisked together
  • Shredded Cheese – I like cheddar but you can use your favorite
  • Frozen Hashbrowns – you can use hashbrown potatoes or shredded.
  • Milk – whole milk is best.


  • Breakfast Meat: Ham, bacon, or turkey sausage would be perfect!
  • Potatoes: tater tots or shredded hashbrowns would be fine to use.
  • Cheese: Colby Jack, Pepper Jack, Swiss cheese, or Monterey Jack are good substitutions for the casserole.
  • Milk: Mix it up! Add half and half or heavy cream in place of 1 cup of milk.
  • Veggies: mix in mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, broccoli or spinach.


  1. Prepare: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brown the Sausage: Crumble sausage into a skillet on the stove and brown completely. Remove from heat.
  3. Whisk the Eggs: In a large bowl, mix eggs and milk together and whisk well.
  4. Add seasonings: Add salt and pepper to the egg mixture and stir.
  5. Mix ingredients all together: To a 9×13 dish sprayed with cooking spray, add frozen hashbrowns, sausage, and cheese.
  6. Add to the baking dish: Pour the egg/milk mixture into the dish.
  7. Bake: Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes – covered with foil.
  8. Rest: Remove the foil and bake for about 10-15 minutes more until the dish is bubbly and cheese is melted.

What to Serve with a Delicious Breakfast Casserole

Make this a complete meal is easy by adding a few breakfast favorites to your menu. This breakfast casserole is perfect alone but if you are looking for some side ideas, I’ve got you covered! Here are some ideas of what can go along with this breakfast casserole recipe during the holiday season.

Breakfast Casserole Tips For Success

Make ahead: You can easily make this casserole the night before and bake in the morning. Just cover in the fridge and take out while your oven is preheating. You may need to increase the baking time by 10-15 minutes.

Baking Tip: This casserole is done when the edges are set and lightly brown and the center only jiggles slightly. Make sure there is no “watery” eggs in the center before removing from the oven.

Storage: Cover the entire casserole with foil or a lid to your baking dish and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Reheat: Reheat in the microwave.

Freeze: This casserole can be frozen. First bake your breakfast casserole and once it has completely cooled, place in an airtight container or ziplock bag. When ready to warm up, place in oven and bake at 350 degrees until warmed through about 20 to 25 minutes.

  1. 5 stars
    Some of these comments are giving, “Say you can’t cook without saying you can’t cook”. Because there is absolutely nothing wrong with this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  2. 5 stars
    I thought this was excellent!! I had last minute guests/family come over for brunch yesterday & found this “easy” recipe. Indeed it was easy and delicious!! I had everything on hand so I gave it a shot and my family ate almost all of it!! It’s a keeper, thank you! (I did use simply potatoes bs frozen, they worked out great 👍)

  3. 5 stars
    I make this every Christmas morning and everyone loves it! It’s such a favorite that my son asked for it for his graduation brunch. Sometimes I add veggies, like bell peppers, but on its own it’s pretty delicious! Thanks!

    I made this recipe and only used one cup of milk. It came out fantastic. I did dice some mushrooms, pepper and onion. Will definitely make this again!!

  5. 4 stars
    I used 1 1/2 cups of milk and it still came out a bit runny. Definitely going with 1 cup of milk next time.

  6. Made this tonight. Followed the recipe and the directions as written. It turned out perfect! They LOVED it!

  7. I made this and it was really bland, very boring. I took the leftovers and spruced them up…. ALOT.

  8. I made this with 1 cup of milk instead of 2 and added bell pepper….omg amazing! I love cooking and I did add a few more seasonings but it turned out incredible! Thank you!! Fam favorite for sure!

  9. 2 stars
    I was so excited and hopeful for this recipe for a busy night/weekend. I made sure to follow every direction to a T… however it came out so soupy. I would definitely lower the milk to 1 cup and bake at 375-400.

  10. 5 stars
    My family loves this casserole.

  11. Robert L ROWE says:

    I followed the directions and no issue whatsoever. Not sure what every else is doing but mine came out perfect!

  12. Love this recipe! I subbed turkey sausage and almond milk and added broccoli, peppers, and onions. Delish!

  13. Came out liquidy. I only used a cup and a half of heavy cream and it still came out to liquidy. I dumped as much as I could out of the dish and then baked at 400 for another 15 minutes. Then it came out perfect!!! Really yummy. I used spicy Italian sausage, onions and some other seasonings.

  14. 5 stars
    This was a very simple, delicious breakfast bake. I used Impossible Brats instead of sausage and a mixture of 1/2 & 1/2 and Almond milk. I also added 3 extra egg yolks because of the comments about it being soupy. Turned out great and only took 40 minutes to bake. Does need the required amount of salt, in my opinion. Will definitely make this one again!

    Cooked.for the amount of time showing. 350 for an hour. Eggs were still runny. Was a bummer because it was for a family meal and it was not done in time. You might need to adjust temp for this recipe.

  16. Michelle Mitchell says:

    I instantly regretted putting the two cups of milk in as soon as I poured. After an hour and 15 minutes I pulled it out and it was still soup. Just gonna take the loss on this one.

  17. Buddy Hales says:

    5 stars
    Made this with Turkey sausage and add a tsp of Tony Chachere’s Cajun seasoning for a little kick and it turned out phenomenal!! Definitely will use this recipe again.

    1. 3 stars
      That is the best Cajun seasoning and sooo good on eggs, I will definitely follow your lead on that!

  18. Can this be done in a crockpot?

    1. Baked for 45 min. Took it out still soupy regret to 2 cups milk, will not do that again!!
      Maybe next time 1-1 1/2 cups milk. Was not to pleased with this recipe.

  19. I have made this recipe two times now and my family loves it. Because I have a cholesterol problem I tried it with egg beaters, but I reduced the milk to 1 cup and it came out great.

  20. Jenn Teskey says:

    5 stars
    I have used this recipe multiple times and have never read through the comments before. I’m very surprised to learn that some people find it soupy? I do alter it a bit. I add a couple tbsp of salsa, and some spinach, but otherwise follow the recipe to the letter. It turns out perfect every time and I’ve had nothing but compliments from our guests. Thank you for this GREAT, basic recipe, that is so easy to add to!
