Potato Sausage and Egg Gratin

Potato Sausage and Egg Gratin
 Our ward, or congregation, celebrated the holidays with a festive Christmas breakfast.  This splendid gratin was served without sausage or bacon, instead with ham slices and a glorious array of fruit breads.
Meet some of the chefs who shared the recipe with me and cooked for a huge group of hungry families that morning.    We meet monthly, a “Thursday lunch bunch,” and December was at my home.  I took this photo at the end of our party and some friends had to leave earlier so a few are missing, sorry gals and thanks all for the fun!  
Our family made two gratins for Christmas morning brunch, one with sausage and another with bacon.  Both were very flavorful, so when I had an extra pound of mild Italian sausage to use and a handful of camera-shy grand-boys who slept over last Friday night Potato, Sausage and Egg Gratin was a nice fit.

Frozen hash-brown potatoes, browned sausage, grated cheese and eggs come together making an easy gratin that bakes for one hour while you finish brunch preparations, set the table or open presents.

Potato, Sausage and Egg Gratin
Eggs, potatoes, and cheese, oh my! Easy to fix and serve, especially delicious during the holidays. I like to add sausage or bacon to mine, but it's also very good without.
Serves: 16-24
  • 1 pound mild Italian Sausage or bacon (optional)
  • 18 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups plain yogurt (I used Greek yogurt)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 cups shredded hash browns, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon dried chopped onions
  • 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese (or whatever cheese you like)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13" glass casserole dish with oil. Beat eggs, yogurt, and salt together. Set aside. In a large bowl add butter, thawed potatoes and dried onions. Stir to mix. Pour in egg mixture and lightly stir to blend ingredients. Pour into casserole dish. Sprinkle grated cheese over casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when inserted.

    It’s the addition of the hash browned potatoes that really grabs me. I love to have a breakfast casserole recipe on hand for when people are spending the night. It’s also great to bring as a comfort meal to families. This one looks great.
