    I remember reading (or I dreamt it, who knows) a breakfast casserole recipe that has an egg layer on the bottom with sausage and topped with cheese and hash browns and baked. Maybe thats all it is, but I wondered if anyone had anything remotely like this. Thanks.

    That does look delish! But Im looking for one that is topped with hash browns. I have the eggs (duh), sausage, and hash browns; I just may have to wing it (wing it, get it, hahahaha) and try to throw something together. How badly can it turn out, anyway? (dont answer that....)

    Try using the hash browns instead of the cheese or top the potatoes with the cheese, hey it's Christmas and you only live once. Merry Christmas Laura

    The recipe I have calls for hash browns on the bottom, then a layer of sausage or other meat,then cheese mixed with egg and a little milk on top.

    You can add other stuff to the layers too, corn, green chilies, etc.

    That would probably work....don't the hash browns get soggy on the bottom tho?

    The hash browns absorb the egg and stuff and become part of the casserole, so yes they are not crisp.

    That's basically all you do, but I add some Garlic, parsley, salt and pepper and I top the whole thing with sliced tomatoes, that makes it really pretty.

    Okay, here's mine:

    1/2 lb. (8 oz.) of bulk sausage
    2 C. frozen shredded hash browns
    1 can of Rotel, drained
    1/2 lb. (8 oz.) velvetta, cut up
    6 eggs

    Brown sausage in skillet on med. heat, drain.
    Add hash browns in a layer, then Rotel, cook 5 minutes.
    Top with velvetta
    Beat eggs & 2 tbsp. milk together
    Pour evenly over ingredients in the skillet, cover.
    Reduce heat to low.
    Cook 10 to 12 minutes or until egg mixture is set in the center and velvetta is melted.
    Uncover and let stand 5 minutes before cutting into wedges and serving.

    I'll be making it in approx. 2 hours, as that will be our Christmas breakfast when the SO gets home...he devours a skillet full of it.
    Also, for those unfamiliar w/Rotel (I never heard of it until I moved to Arkansas....it's a brand name for canned diced tomatoes and green chiles.
