Sausage Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

This is one of those casseroles you can make ahead of time, chill in the refrigerator and bake when you are ready to serve it.  Great for those times you have overnight visitors or holidays like Christmas morning when you would rather spend time with your guests rather than spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

You can be versatile with the recipe . . . I love breakfast sausage, but I also love little smokies that I would love to experiment with, add onions, peppers or mushrooms . . . the choice is yours.  I would not experiment with the hash browns though.

The photo and recipe comes from Plain Chicken, one of my favorite food blogs.  The link to the website follows the recipe.  Steph's blog is like a lifestyle magazine with lots of delicious and practical recipes, all things family-related and interesting travel articles.
