SAUSAGE HASH BROWN BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

I wouldn’t go so far to say that I was a morning person. I’m not. At all. But I do love mornings once I’m fully awake and getting my day started. So full of possibilities. Especially if it’s going to be a sunny day. Then I know I will truly feel motivated to get a lot done that day. Usually. I’m pretty sure I’m solar-powered.

CAN I FREEZE OR REFRIGERATE THIS CASSEROLE?

What is so wonderful about casseroles is you can make them up the day before, put it in the fridge and it is sitting there ready for you when you wake up and all ya gotta do is bake it and you’re done. Same with freezing. Wrap it up well before cooking (so it doesn’t get freezer burned) and take it out and bake when ready. If you are baking this from a cold state or from freezing, you will have to add on to the cooking time given below.Sausage Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole recipe from The Country Cook
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

onion
