CHRISTMAS BREAKFAST SAUSAGE CASSEROLE
This delicious casserole recipe is particularly inviting and yummy on a cold wintery white Christmas morning. Generally a hit with the entire family, 1 pound of Uncle Charley’s pork sausage or maple breakfast links can be used in this recipe.
Please note, this recipe does call for crumbled sausage. We recommend this page for tips on how to easily crumble sausage.
Other ingredients include eggs, shredded mild cheddar cheese, milk, white bread (one reviewer used hash browns instead), and mustard powder.
HASH BROWN BREAKFAST CASSEROLE
1 pound of Uncle Charley’s pork sausage shares the stage with hash browns, eggs, and shredded cheddar cheese in this delicious and easy breakfast casserole. Just cook up the sausage and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the meat crumbles.
Get the hash browns crispy by broiling them with oil in a baking dish as you cook the sausage. Picante or green hot sauce and sour cream can be added for a Tex Mex flare.
