Holiday Brunch Casserole
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 30 min. + standing
I have been using this recipe for years. I have always used hot Italian sausage instead of breakfast sausage. My family looks forward to special days just so they can have this for breakfast.
Our family loves a hearty, comforting breakfast dish and this fits the bill. Love to serve this for a nice event, like the holidays. We used the "hot" versus mild bulk sausage. This turned out nice and fluffy for us. I did squeeze out potatoes before using.
My favorite recipe for company, delicious!
What a disappointment. I did exactly according to instructions and the dish after cooking for 1 hour it never thicken. Terrible
Fluffy, cheesy, moist, delicious, meaty, eggy, veggie goodness. Toast some English muffins, serve some ambrosia salad
This is the best overnight breakfast casserole I've ever made! - I did not cook hash browns ahead of time as others have commented. I thawed in refrigerator all day then squeezed all of the water out of the potatoes with paper towels before using. - I used Maple flavored sausage. - Used green and red bell pepper. Added the bell pepper and green onions to the sausage after no longer pink. Cooked until soft. - Used 3 or 4 green onions instead of 1. - Used 7 eggs instead of 4. - Added a few tablespoons of extra Bisquick because more eggs. Also, could not find reduced fat mix so used regular Bisquick. Not sure why they call for reduced fat mix. - Added 1 teaspoon of dry mustard. - Added pepper. I had to cook for an hour. Put aluminum foil on the casserole at about 40 minutes so the top wouldn't burn. Everyone will love this recipe!
Much love for this from our family. I like to add a can of diced Hatch green chiles as well. I do agree that sauteing is a good idea, as mentioned by waleskaj. I haven't tried doubling the eggs though. I wonder if you do this - what are anyone's thoughts of omitting baking mix?
Wonderful taste! No complaints. I do think the ingredient of reduced fat biscuit mix is amusing, amidst all the other ingredients, lol.
This is an awesome breakfast casserole. This is our traditional Christmas breakfast. We look forward to this every year. It is so delicious and easy to make. I use red pepper instead of green and saute all the potato, onion, peppers together first. I also add more that one green onion. Just use whatever onion you have on hand. I double the eggs and use 8. Keep it covered with foil until the last 10 minutes of baking, remove the foil and finish baking so the cheese doesn't get too browned. Wonderful breakfast and leftovers are great too.
I make a recipe just like this w/out the green peppers, I feel the peppers take over the casserole. We have it every Christmas breakfast LOVE IT!!
