Sun-dried tomatoes and sausage add lots of texture and flavor to this gooey casserole. We've even enjoyed it reheated after a night game at our local college. It's always a winner in my book. —Nancy Murphy, Mount Dora, Florida

  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 cup julienned oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes with herbs, drained
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
