INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 2 lbs mild ground pork sausage
  • 1 30-oz package cubed hash browns
  • 2 tsp salt divided
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 Tbsp chopped chives

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350°F.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion and bell pepper and cook until translucent and tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

To pan, add sausage and break up with a wooden spoon. Cook until no longer pink and sausage is cooked through. Drain and set aside.

Prepare hash browns according to package, adding 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper.

Stir together onion and pepper, sausage, hash browns, and cheese. Pour into a 13X9-inch pan that has been lightly greased.

In medium bowl whisk together eggs, milk, and the remaining teaspoon of salt. Pour over potato mixture evenly.

Bake until a fork can be inserted and taken out clean, about 35-40 minutes. Top with chives before serving.

Notes

We like the taste of pork sausage in this dish, but you can substitute chicken or even veggie sausage for a great taste.

This casserole can be baked 24 hours ahead and then heated in the oven before serving.
