Easy Sausage, Hashbrowns and Egg Casserole is the perfect dish to prepare if you want a good breakfast, and a great dish to share with family or friends.
We recently had friends staying with us from out of town. They had so graciously hosted us earlier in the year, that I wanted to make sure they had a great relaxing time with us. Easy Sausage, Hashbrowns and Egg casserole for breakfast it easy to do.
I wanted to make sure that I had as much done in advance as far as plans and meals go. I don’t enjoy visiting someone that is working so hard that we don’t get to visit. John and I are no-fuss people, and love to help with meal preparation and clean-up. We don’t want our hosts going out of their way for us.
Before our friends got there, I made a simple breakfast casserole and put it in the refrigerator to bake the next morning. I also made some Glazed Apple Crumb muffins (eyes rolling into the back of my head delicious), and made sure I had a selection of yogurt and fruit available.
It turned out that this casserole fed us two mornings in a row. The second morning, I heated it up in the microwave, and it was just as delicious the second time around. It is a very versatile dish. You can add more veggies or change the meat or cheese selections.
With the Holidays on our horizon, this is a great dish to prepare if you want a good breakfast to stave off the out of control eating later in the day or just a great dish to share with family or friends.
