INGREDIENTS

8 eggs

2 pounds of crumbled breakfast sausage of your choice

1 tablespoon butter

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

2 c. milk

How to make Make Ahead Sausage Breakfast Bake

Step 1: In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onions once the butter has melted and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes. To taste, season with salt and pepper. Set the onions aside when done and wipe the pan clean.

Step 2: To the skillet, add the sausage and cook for about 8 minutes over medium heat until brown. Set the cooked sausage aside.

Step 3: In the now-empty skillet, add the potatoes. Adjust the heat to medium and cook for approximately 5 minutes, flipping halfway. To taste, season with salt and pepper.

Step 4: Place the eggs and milk in a large bowl. Beat well until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Then, add the garlic powder and onion powder. Mix well.

Step 5: On the bottom of a greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish, place the hash browns. Top with the onions, eggs, and sausage. Then, sprinkle with cheese.

Step 6: At this point, you can store this in the fridge overnight if making ahead. If baking right away, place in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for about 30 to 35 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
