Sausage Breakfast Casserole

Share all the delicious recipes!

All your breakfast favorites baked up in one easy casserole! This sausage breakfast casserole has eggs, hash browns, crumbled sausage, and 3 types of cheese. Serve as is or serve with warm tortillas and salsa.


One of my family’s favorite dinner is ‘breakfast for dinner’. This sausage breakfast casserole gets made often around here. It’s full of all the breakfast favorites; eggs, shredded hash browns, crumbled sausage, and 3 different types of cheese!

Lately I have been craving eggs like crazy. I’ll blame it on the pregnancy because last time I was pregnant with a boy, which was my first, I ate scrambled eggs every single day! This time around is no different. Eggs all day, every day seem to be my motto lately πŸ™‚Β 

So, it’s no wonder I was craving this the other night and luckily I was able to snap a couple pictures. Although, it’s really hard to take pictures of casserole type dish so just know that the pics don’t do this sausage breakfast casserole justice.


I always serve this with warm flour tortillas and salsa. We love making breakfast tacos out of these. Or, just eat it as is and it’s still delicious. You could also use any other toppings you want; sour cream, pico de gallo, avocado chunks, more shredded cheese, diced tomato. You can’t go wrong!

  • 1 lb breakfast sausage, mild or regular
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups frozen shredded hash browns, thawed
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups (8 oz block) swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup shredded colby jack or cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups cottage cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a skillet pan over medium-high heat, cook sausage, diced onion, and salt until sausage is no longer pink. Crumble sausage as you cook it.
  • While sausage is cooking, combine the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix together.
  • Once done, drain sausage mixture and add to the large mixing bowl. Stir together to combine.
  • Dump into a 9x13 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Cook for 45-50 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the middle is somewhat set (it should not be "jiggly" still and look "liquidy". It should be somewhat set).
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

    July 19, 2016 at 1:43 am Congratulations!! Excited to hear about your pregnancy! This looks good and lots of protein for you and the baby. I'm not a sausage fan- do you think bacon would work instead?

      July 19, 2016 at 2:47 pm Hi Anne. Thanks so much :) Yes of course bacon would work. I would use 1 lb and cut it into chunks and then cook it up with the diced onion. Hope that helps & that you love this.

    July 19, 2016 at 4:58 pm I love breakfast for dinner too! It's not my husband's favorite but I can get away with it a couple times a month without too many complaints. I am going to have to give this a try!

      July 21, 2016 at 7:56 pm Breakfast for dinner is the best. As long as there is bacon or sausage, my husband and son won't complain :) It's the meatless ones I'll hear about.

    April 15, 2017 at 10:02 pm Hi! This looks amazing πŸ’•πŸ˜ I was wondering how much this serves? I want to make it for Easter tomorrow, but I have lots of family coming over. Will it serve 10?

      April 15, 2017 at 11:57 pm It makes a 9x13 pan so I would say yes to it serving 10 people. If it's 10 adults you may need 2 pans depending on portion size. Have a great Easter and I hope you enjoy this!

      July 28, 2017 at 8:10 pm I think that should work just fine. I've never done it but I see no reason why it would not work making the night before.

    December 2, 2017 at 11:00 am If I make ahead and freeze this, would temp and cooking time still be the same when ready to put in oven?

      December 3, 2017 at 9:35 pm I have no experience freezing this. If you do, I would pull it out of the freezer like an hour before baking it. The temperature will be the same but it may need to cook for longer depending on how cold it is when you put it in the oven.

    January 31, 2019 at 1:05 am Hi this looks delicious but we don't like cottage cheese, is there something else we can use or can I just omit it? Thanks for any help you can give me. Have a wonderful and blessed day.

      February 4, 2019 at 3:21 pm I have never made it without the cottage cheese. I think if you just omitted it, then the casserole would be too dry. Maybe try sour cream possibly? I am not entirely sure as I have never tried it.

      June 29, 2019 at 9:03 pm You could use any cheese you like in place of the swiss :)
