Breakfast casserole combines all the favorite breakfast items in one dish, with eggs, sausage, hashbrowns, and more!
Heat oven to 425°F. Brush butter over bottom and up sides of 8- or 9-inch square glass baking dish.
Combine potatoes, 1 1/2 cups cheese strips, 1 egg, salt and pepper in bowl; mix well. Press potato mixture onto bottom and up sides of buttered dish. Bake 10 minutes.
Crumble sausage into 10-inch nonstick skillet. Cook, stirring often, over medium-high heat until browned and no longer pink. Using slotted spoon, place cooked sausage into potato crust.
Combine remaining 5 eggs and half & half in bowl; beat with whisk until well mixed. Pour egg mixture over sausage. Bake 15-19 minutes or until eggs are almost set. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; continue baking 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Cut into squares; top each serving with chopped tomato and fresh basil.
*Substitute 3 1/2 to 4 cups thawed frozen hash brown potatoes.

My husband and myself really enjoyed this casserole. Really doesn't need quite this much cheese for our taste and diet.
We used real potatoes that we grated and squeezed out all the water. Everyone loved it!
I made this for company and everyone loved it! We had leftovers from grilling out the previous evening, so instead of cooking up the bulk sausage I just cut up the leftover Italian sausage and added in! Delish and I'll make this again. The hash browns were nice and crispy and not soggy.
Very good and I will definitely make it again!
I really wanted to make this but due to what I had on hand I made a few changes; I used the thicker "southern" style hash browns, bacon instead of sausage, and american cheese in the crust but Monterey Jack and Cheddar on the top. It was delicious! My family even ate all the leftovers.
Everyone at work loves this!
I made the recipe for a mother's day brunch. It was a big hit. Everyone went back for seconds.

This past weekend was glorious! We had perfect weather for catching up on our yard work. We spent all of Saturday afternoon weeding and tending to our overgrown “problem” areas. Ryan’s mom, Becky, was even so kind as to come over and play with our toddler so that he could be outside, too – without getting too close to the clipping shears and other dangerous tools.
