A breakfast casserole, made with love! Perfect for Christmas morning - or any morning!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

With all the layers of yumminess, any family would love to wake up to this breakfast casserole on Christmas morning. We used the frozen shredded potatoes and it was quite delicious. It would be even better with fresh potatoes. The potatoes are a hearty base. The sausage, veggie, and cheese layer makes the casserole special. We were concerned about the amount of cheddar but it melted to perfection. Cottage cheese makes this layer nice and creamy. A fantastic breakfast casserole! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Christmas Morning Casserole

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375.
  • 2In a large skillet, saute pork sausage, onions and mushrooms. Cook on medium high until sausage is no longer pink. Sausage should be crumbled. Drain and set aside.
  • 3I shred my own potatoes, but frozen shredded potatoes will work fine also. If shredding your own potatoes, make sure to drain and press out as much moisture as possible.
  • 4In a 13x9 glass baking dish, add shredded potatoes and 1/4 stick of melted butter, mix potatoes and butter until completely coated. Using a spatula, spread mixture evenly onto bottom of baking dish.
  • 5In a mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, shredded cheese, eggs, sausage/mushroom/onion mixture, salt, pepper and garlic salt. Mix well.
  • 6Once mixed, pour onto prepared shredded potatoes.
  • 7Bake at 375 degrees, uncovered, for 60 minutes.
