  • Brown 1 pound of sausage first.
  • Drain the extra fat, but use the same pan with a half stick of butter to cook about three-fourths of a bag of frozen hash browns with one cup of chopped onions and green peppers.
  • Beat a dozen eggs with about 2 ½ cups of whole milk. Add salt, pepper, and two tablespoons of Dijon mustard. (No nutmeg!)
  • Butter or spray a 13-by-9 or 10-inch casserole dish.
  • Layer potatoes first, then about a cup of cheese.
  • Add sausage, then another cup of cheese.
  • Pour in the egg/milk mixture, and then another cup of cheese. Tap the cheese down a little so it is in the egg mixture.
  • Can sprinkle top with some parmesan if you like, but only about ½ cup. (The two cups is too much!)
  • I don’t add the bread – too many carbs!
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.
  • Let sit for five to 10 minutes for the middle to firm up.
