Country Egg and Sausage Breakfast Casserole


The cold has broken and it was over a 90 degree temperature change between yesterday and last week. Things are getting slushy so we are trying to get everything up and off the driveway and sidewalks so that it doesn’t freeze. At least it is warm enough now to do this.

End of the month and finding a last package of country sausage at the bottom of the freezer is a great find in our house. I had a coupon to use for the local grocery store and potatoes and eggs were on sale so we able to get those things for $1.37. Yes! It is the little joys when you get towards the end of the month when  you are only paid once a month.

Verdict:

We love breakfast for dinner. I love making all the pieces of the casserole the night before so I can put it all together right before I want to bake it. Fry up the potatoes (or better yet use leftover oven roasted potatoes), fry the sausage and onion, and shred your cheese the night before you are ready to bake this and it is super easy to put together the next night.

Try using different flavored sausages if you are adventurous!
