This is another recipe I got from my friend Jessica. I've made a Hash Brown casserole before, but wasn't to pleased with the taste.

This one has got a great balance of flavors and I actually used bulk sausage instead of the smoked sausage that this recipe calls for.

How to Make Hash Brown Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 3 quart baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat until browned, approximately 5 minutes. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon, and set aside. Reserve rendered fat in pan.

Simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, approximately 10 minutes. Add 3 cups cheese, stirring until melted. Stir in sour cream, salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
  5. In a large bowl, stir together cheese mixture, pepper mixture, sausage, and hash browns until well combined. Spoon into prepared dish. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.
