This crave-worthy casserole has a golden hash-brown crust that's topped with sausage and veggies. My favorite part is the surprise layer of gooey Gruyere. —Anuja Argade, Foster City, California

Ingredients

  • 1 pound maple pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup cubed peeled sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 package (30 ounces) frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Gruyere or cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped fresh kale (tough stems removed)
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen corn
  • 5 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Maple syrup, optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, cook sausage and sweet potato over medium-high heat 5-7 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink, breaking up sausage into crumbles. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
Meanwhile, coat bottom of a 12-in. ovenproof skillet with oil. Reserve 1/2 cup hash browns for topping; add remaining potatoes to skillet, pressing firmly with a spatula to form an even layer.
Layer with cheese, kale and corn; top with sausage mixture and reserved hash browns. In a bowl, whisk eggs, cream, salt and pepper until blended; pour over top.
Bake, uncovered, 45-55 minutes or until edges are golden brown and egg portion is set. Cover loosely with foil during the last 10 minutes if needed to prevent overbrowning. Let stand 20 minutes before serving. If desired, serve with syrup. Yield: 8 servings.

"I really liked this unusual mixture. I used cheddar cheese and added some cayenne and red pepper flakes because I love sweet heat. I recommend layering just like it states in the recipe because it gives the casserole a nice crispy topping."

"I liked having all of the vegetables in the dish, but I do recommend making sure your kale is in fairly small pieces so it doesn't end up dominating any given bite."
