breakfast, casserole, make ahead, overnight
Non-stick cooking spray
½lb.bulk Italian sausageno casings
1small red oniondiced
1large russet or Idaho potatodiced
¾c.sharp cheddar cheeseshredded, divided
2T.fresh chivesfinely chopped
Sea salt and black pepperto taste
Preheat oven to 350°F and spray an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with some non-stick cooking spray.
Set a large skillet over medium heat and add the sausage. Cook until slightly browned, breaking up the sausage with a wooden spoon as it cooks, approximately 3-4 minutes.
Add the onion and potato and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens and the potatoes become golden brown, approximately 6-7 minutes.
In the meantime, whisk the eggs and whole milk in a small bowl and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Add one-half cup cheddar cheese and stir to combine.
Transfer the sausage-potato mixture into the prepared baking dish and stir in the diced broccoli. Spread into an even layer and pour the egg mixture evenly over the top. Sprinkle remaining cheese across the top. This is where you would cover the dish with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge until the next morning if making it ahead of time.
Place in the pre-heated oven and bake until the eggs are set and the potatoes are cooked through, around 30-35 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool for several minutes before slicing. Top with fresh chives and serve immediately. Enjoy!
If you’re planning to make this recipe ahead of time, simply assemble it and place it in the fridge. In the morning, take it out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature before placing in the oven as per the instructions.
Use hash browns in place of the diced potatoes.
Add some chopped red pepper to the onions and potatoes. This adds a fun red touch to the recipe and along with the broccoli, makes for festive holiday colors.
Vary the type of cheese. You could even combine 2-3 kinds. Goat cheese, gouda, and swiss are all good options.
Use spinach in place of the broccoli.
