Ultimate Breakfast Casserole Recipe @pinch

A very fitting title for this breakfast casserole ... it truly is the ultimate. It reminds us of a breakfast bowl that has everything you love about breakfast inside and is topped with creamy gravy. Hash browns are the base for the layers of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, cheese, and country gravy. When baked, the gooey cheese and gravy layers melt into the other ingredients. This does take a little longer to prepare but It is so worth it. This is a delicious breakfast casserole that I made for a food day we had at work and everyone loved it. This casserole takes a little bit longer to prepare but it is well worth it. It can even be made the day before and reheated in the oven in the morning. Enjoy!!

Prep time: Cook time:
Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Breakfast Casseroles Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 3 package(s) country milk gravy mix (do not buy cheap brands, they taste watery)
  • 3 cup(s) water
  • 4 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 2 package(s) diced, frozen hash browns
  • 2 pound(s) mild pork sausage
  • 24 ounce(s) maple-flavored bacon
  • 12 large eggs
  • - salt and pepper
  • 3 cup(s) finely shredded Fiesta blend cheese
Intructions :
  • Mix up the gravy mix and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously to prevent lumps or scorching
  • Melt butter in a large skillet and add the hash browns. Cook until well browned. (You can also deep fry the hash browns in oil until golden brown or add them to a large baking pan and brown in the oven, stirring occasionally to cook them evenly.)
  • Cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat. Break apart into small crumbles while cooking. Drain
  • Cook the bacon. Crumble it on a paper towel to absorb all the grease
  • Scramble the eggs and set them aside
  • In a large deep dish baking pan (I use a disposable foil pan for lasagna - it works great and makes for quick and easy clean up), layer in the hash browns and sprinkle in a little salt and pepper to taste
  • Sprinkle a fine layer of cheese on top of the hash browns
  • Layer with half the scrambled eggs, sausage, and bacon. Top that with half of the gravy
  • Repeat the layers, finishing with a layer of cheese on top of the gravy
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake 20 minutes. Serve warm with your favorite toast, biscuit, or bread
  • Alternatively, cover the casserole and place it in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning, bake 30 minutes.
