Make Ahead Potato and Sausage Egg Bake – a super easy make ahead egg bake made with hash browns, sausage, green peppers, and lots of cheese! Perfect for brunch or when you have a house full of people!
This is the last week of school before my son has his holiday break. So much to do!! Speaking of my son, I got an email from him this morning. I still can’t get used to him having his own email address and him sending me emails. Anyway, he has been working with a couple of the teachers to try to get someone from the school district to be announcers at their school spelling bee. He was one of only two 4th graders who made the spelling bee last year. So he actually has experience to help this cause. The email he sent me this morning was that he heard back from the district, and they would like him to contact the mayor and a city council member. So he was working on writing that letter. Pretty proud mom to think he was the one picked from his grade to do this!
So when you have a house full of people, what do you feed them for breakfast? I love a make ahead egg bake, because they are so easy, feed a ton of people, and all of the work can be done ahead of time. This version is a potato and sausage egg bake, so the base is a bag of frozen hash browns. You just need to brown the sausage and green peppers together, and then assemble everything in a baking dish. It sits in the fridge over night, and you just have to pop it in the oven the next day.
I made this potato and sausage egg bake when my family was all here for Thanksgiving. It was nice to have breakfast ready when everyone woke up. If there are any leftovers, you can just reheat the next day. Top with salsa to give it a little kick. I used Jones Dairy Farm breakfast sausage roll for this make ahead egg bake. I love their sausage because it has just 4 ingredients and is all natural. So often sausage has so many ingredients that you can’t pronounce, it is nice to actually know what you are eating!
