Hash Brown Sausage Bake

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

    This is the best breakfast casserole! And the previous review is so right, that it's good cold too! My husband loves it in his lunch the next day. Have made this several times throughout the years and my family loves it!!!

    I made this for Christmas and it has become our favorite casserole! This is great anytime of day, not just breakfast. The only change I made is I swapped out the American cheese for mild cheddar.
