Smoked Sausage Breakfast Casserole

I could eat this casserole all day. I found the original recipe here, but changed it up by using hash browns instead of cubed potatoes, and I added some jalapeño, onion and green bell pepper for some kick and added flavor.

I think I might add a teaspoon of Cajun seasoning next time.

Makes: 4 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes

  • 1 lb skinless smoked sausage, cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 lb hash browns, defrosted
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup white onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, minced
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

1. Cook sausage in a large skillet until browned.

2. Spray a 9" x 9" casserole with non-stick spray. Add potatoes and sausage. Mix.

3. Melt butter in the skillet. Add vegetables and saute for 3 minutes.

4. Add the flour, milk and salt and pepper and cook another 2-3 minutes.

5. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese. Pour mixture over potatoes and sausage and stir. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until bubbly and browned, and the potatoes are cooked through.
