This is one of my son’s favorites. Buttered hash browns form a mouthwatering crust for a yummy filling of sausage and cheese. It’s sure to please at breakfast, brunch or even lunch. —Vicky Dempsey, Louisville, Mississippi


  • 1 package (20 ounces) refrigerated shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup 4% cottage cheese
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 slices process American cheese, chopped


  1. In a large bowl, combine the hash browns, butter and bouillon. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 10-in. pie plate. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. In a large bowl, combine the sausage mixture, cottage cheese, eggs and American cheese.
  3. Pour into crust. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
