Breakfast Potato Casserole

EASY Potato Egg Casserole

We LOVE breakfast at our house. I’m not joking when I say that we have breakfast for dinner at ONCE a week. We love pancakes and waffles, cinnamon rolls, smoothies and especially breakfast casseroles, like today’s Potato Egg Casserole.

These casseroles are so great, and mostly because they’re quick, simple and delicious. Plus, they are easy to change up based on the ingredients you love and crave most.

This particular breakfast casserole has potatoes, eggs, sausage and cheese – some of our favorite breakfast ingredients, and it’s put together in just a few minutes.

How to Make Egg and Potato Casserole

The ingredients for this egg and potato casserole are simple – eggs, milk, sausage, hash browns, cheese, salt and pepper.

Dividing the cheese and setting a cup aside, mix your eggs, milk, sausage hash browns, salt and pepper. Mix until combined and then pour it into a greased 9×13 pan.

Bake this at 350 for 20-35 minutes. Take the dish out, top with remaining cheese and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes. Let set a few minutes before serving.

Egg and Potato Casserole in dishes

There are so many easy ways to change up this recipe. Here are some other variations you can try…

  • Mexican – Add chopped bell peppers and use Mexican or Monterrey Jack cheese instead
  • Meat lovers – add cooked bacon to this recipe too!
  • Low-Fat version – add spinach, omit the meat and add a cup of chopped spinach

Can you make this potato breakfast casserole ahead of time?

You can make this breakfast potato casserole up to 24 hours in advance. Just cover and keep in fridge until ready to make. You may need to add a few additional minutes to the cook time.

Can you use shredded hash browns in this breakfast casserole?

Of course – and cook times should be the same. Just like the cubed hash browns, we recommend making sure these are thawed for best results. If not thawed, it may need an additional few minutes to cook.

  1. I was just wondering what you mean by hash browns cubed and thawed? do you have a certain brand you use for that? sorry, just barely trying to learn how to cook. Thank you!

  2. For the precooked Italian sausage, is it sold precooked in the freezer section or do I buy the Italian sausage in the meat section and cook before using?

    I made it this morning for my son & hubby. I made some changes, only to be more appealing to my son. I used tater tots, instead of hashbrowns & diced ham instead of sausage. It turned out incredible & they loved it. This is a great recipe that can totally be altered to fit your tastes. Hubby asked me to make one with bacon, sausage, peppers & onions, in the future. We also added a dollop of sour cream on top for some extra yum!

    Not really sure what went wrong as my my eggs never cooked. I followed the directions to a t but I did find them to be a little vague.

    1. Hmm..I am not sure what went wrong either?? They should have gotten baked. Everything just gets mixed in a bowl, minus one cup cheese, then gets poured in the pan to get baked, with the cup of cheese on top. I’m sorry!
