Simple Spinach Sausage Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole has all the “comfort” you need in a breakfast dish!

I actually came up with recipe while trying to decide which breakfast casserole I wanted to make ahead for Christmas morning.

I knew I wanted breakfast to be easy, something I could take out of the refrigerator pop in the oven and let it cook while we open gifts and have family time. I wanted no hustle and bustle in the kitchen for Christmas morning.

Simple Spinach Sausage Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole has all the "comfort" you need in a breakfast dish!

To make the perfect but simple breakfast casserole, I knew I needed some of the basics!

  • Eggs
  • Protein (i.e. Sausage, Bacon, Canadian Bacon, Veggie Bacon)
  • Cheese– Pretty much any cheese you like would work here, I preferred a rich cheddar for this occasion.
  • Spinach– Veggies!!! I wanted a complete meal all in one casserole. You could have easily used broccoli, asparagus, tomatoes, carrots, kale, or even leftover vegetables!
  • Hash Browns– I like to use baked potatoes or sweet potatoes to give this casserole a hearty feel. They are so easy to just grate them and use them in the dish. So much cheaper than the bag version.

 

I love that you can make this casserole with whatever you have at home in your pantry or refrigerator to customize it the way your family will enjoy it.
