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 least ONCE a week. We love pancakes and waffles, cinnamon rolls, smoothies and especially breakfast casseroles, like today’s breakfast casserole with potatoes.

These casseroles are so great, 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. The best part of all was that it took just minutes to make!

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.

COMBINE. 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. Bake this at 350°F 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.

Tips + Variations

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.

Use shredded hash browns in this breakfast casserole. 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.

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

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

    This is a favorite at our house. It’s so easy and so tasty! We actually enjoy it so much that we sometimes have it for dinner!

    1. I will be making this for a homeless shelter to serve 75 people. Im going to ×6 the recipe and cook it in 2 separate large baking dishes, so recipe ×3 in each fish. How much time do you think it will take to cook each pan? Any other tips?

      1. I would probably double it & put in an 11×17, so have 3 pans. It might need close to 40-45 min. I would start checking at 35 min, then add a couple min at a time.

  2. 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!

    1. Any brand would work. I use Ore-Ida a lot, the southern style cubed potatoes. And, they are in the frozen section 🙂

  3. 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!

    1. Yes, it’s great for adding what you like or taking out what you don’t. Thank you for sharing what you did!!

      1. Can you dice up whole Potatoes and USe THose? Should YOu cook the whole potaties FIRSTif YOu go That route to SOften THEM or will they COOk in the Casserole ANd SOften THat way…

          1. I have not tried using cubed potatoes, so I couldn’t say for sure if you would add them raw or cooked. I am thinking if they are small, they would cook in the casserole.

            Made this tonight, and I used diced raw potato. It turned out great. Make sure your dices are small and cook 5 to 10 extra minutes.

    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!

    Ive made it twice in a weeks time. I do cook my hashbrowns fIrst sInce my family likes them crispy. I heat the leftovers in a skillet so it DOESN’T get mushy.

    Omg!!! I made this today for breakfast!! My partner & i loved it. He had 3 helpings, i had 2 lol.. Yum yum yummy!! Will definitely be making this delicious dish a lot. So easy too. Thank you so much for this recipe.

    1. I personally haven’t tried, but I don’t see why not 🙂 The baking time wouldn’t be as much, but I am not sure how long they would take.

  9. I am not quite understanding how much cheese to use? It says 7 ounces but that is not even one cup but it says to reserve one cup… Can you help me out and explain? Thank you so much.

  10. There is an error in your cheese quantity. If you get aside 1 cup of cheese (8oz), you are short 1 oz., then you are suppose to add the rest of the left over cheese when you take it out, there’s no cheese left over. Need to adjust the amount of cheese in the ingredients to 1-1/2 cups of cheese.

    1. There’s a difference between ‘fluid’ ounces and ‘dry’ ounces when you are measuring ingredients. An 8 ounce bag of shredded cheese is 2 cups in dry ounces. It says this on the bag. It has to do with ounces actually being the weight of something, which really varies depending on what you are weighing.

  11. Making it again because it was a hit! They ate it for breakfast and came back for snacking later! Extra cheese made it really cheesy! For peoples who loves cheese!

    I love this casserole. This is what I make Christmas morning. Today I added sauteed onions and red peppers. Absolutely delicious.

    1. Ooh that sounds delicious to add the onions and peppers. What a fun Christmas morning tradition. So glad you enjoy the casserole!
