How to make Make Ahead Sausage Breakfast Bake

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

Step 2: To the now-empty skillet, add the sausage and cook for about 8 minutes over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Remove the sausage from the skillet.

Step 3: In the same skillet, add the potatoes. Adjust the heat to medium and cook the potatoes for about 5 minutes or so, flipping them halfway. To taste, season with salt and pepper.

Step 4: Place the eggs and milk in a large bowl. Beat well and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix again.

Step 5: On the bottom of a greased 9 x 13-inch pan, place the hash browns, then the onions, eggs, and sausage. Sprinkle the cheese on top. At this point, you can place the pan in the fridge or bake it right away. If baking right away, place the pan in the oven and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes at 350 degrees F or until the cheese has melted.
