Hearty Breakfast Casserole Recipe With Sausage, Cheese, And Hash Browns

A breakfast casserole recipe made with Italian sausage, hash brown potatoes, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and French fried onions. Serve this dish for a hearty breakfast or brunch.

This is a hearty meat and potatoes dish for those who need more than just a cup of yogurt to get going in the morning. Serve this hash brown casserole with lighter fare such as fresh fruit, fruit juice, or a good cup of coffee.

French fried onions give a nice flavorful crunch on the top of the casserole along with a bit of saltiness to offset the cream of mushroom filling. The combination of the crunch top and the creamy potato center just works and makes this a tasty dish. I used a medium cheddar cheese in this recipe, but if you are after more flavor you could easily use a sharp cheddar cheese. Any sharp cheese mellows when baked and combined with other ingredients.
