Cheesy Sausage Hash Brown Casserole
- You can use shredded Hash Brown potatoes for this recipe or diced hashbrowns.
- I used sausage, but bacon or ham would be equally good in this recipe. You may want to turn it into a dinner casserole meal and used ground beef. Now, that would be good!
- I baked my casserole in a 10-inch pie pan. You can bake it in a round pan, square pan, or oblong pan. As long as your hashbrowns are approximately 1 and 1/2 inch thick, your cook time will be the same. You’re looking for the center to be ‘set’ and the cheese to be melted when done.
