Sausage & Cream Cheese Hash Brown breakfast casserole – All my favorite breakfast foods in one simple dish! You can add sausage, cream cheese and cheddar cheese to your hash browns. Also, you can use eggs, milk, garlic onion, salt, pepper, and onions. You can make ahead and freeze or refrigerate. Split between two pans, bake one and freeze the other. This breakfast casserole can be used for breakfast, lunch, brunch, tailgating, or any holiday breakfasts. It’s so good!
I love the combination of cream cheese and sausage. It is always a challenge to find new ways to use it in my favorite recipes. It was amazing in this hashbrown breakfast dish. OMG! So delicious !!!! This casserole can be made ahead and frozen or refrigerated for later. It can be divided between two pans, one to be cooked now, and one to be saved for later.
