Breakfast Casserole with Sausage & Hashbrowns 

My favorite part of this Sausage Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole is when it’s served with syrup it reminds me of a sausage McGriddle from McDonalds.  Enjoy with some fresh fruit and a glass of milk or orange juice and you’ve got a great breakfast or brunch ready in one dish.  

We have several wonderful breakfast casseroles with eggs and cheese. This version features biscuit mix and potatoes for a hearty dish. When it is baked in an 8×8 square pan each slice is thick and delicious.

The first and most basic breakfast casserole is our Brioche, Egg & Sausage Casserole.  Adding cream of mushroom soup creates our Sausage and Egg Bake and using bacon creates our Bacon Breakfast Casserole.

I like how this breakfast casserole has so many different flavors that come together with the sausage and potatoes.  My husband shares that the potatoes blend better with this breakfast casserole than other versions he has eaten.  He likes how the bisquick and syrup add a little sweetness to start your day.

The Bisquick gives a pancake-like feel to the dish which makes is perfect for breakfast.  But don’t limit yourself to breakfast alone because we make this Egg & Sausage Casserole and Everything Bagel & Sausage Casserole for dinner sometimes too.

How to Make Sausage, Hashbrown & Egg Casserole

Lightly coat an 8-inch square pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Cook and crumble sausage along with the chopped onion. I find using a meat masher makes this job so much easier, especially to make small crumbles of meat that blend well in a casserole dish.

Sausage can be refrigerated until casserole is ready to mix up or it can be stirred directly into the hash browns and poured in the baking dish.

Sprinkle cheese into the mixture and stir gently.

Whisk together biscuit mix (I keep Bisquick on hand), milk and eggs. A whisk makes scrambling the eggs and breaking up all of the clumps of biscuit mix easiest.

Pour this mixture evenly over the sausage and hashbrowns.

Bake in a 400°F for 45 – 55 minutes uncovered. The casserole is done when a knife inserted in the center come out clean.

Variations of Sausage & Hash Brown Casserole

  • A pound of bacon can be substituted for the sausage
  • Serving with warm maple syrup totally changes this flavor of this casserole
  • Bisquick can be cut in half or omitted to cut down on pancake flavor
  • Another layer of cheese can be added on top (bake covered) if planning to serve without syrup
  • The number of eggs and amount of potatoes can be increased and baked in a larger pan
  • Casserole can be baked in a 9×13 inch pan for a much thinner casserole that bakes in about 30 – 40 minutes
  • An uncovered casserole with brown nicely on top, to prevent browning cover with foil for the first half or all of the baking time
