Sausage Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole! An easy, gluten-free, make-ahead breakfast everyone will love! This can easily be prepared the day before and baked the next morning. It is also just as delicious made dairy-free. I recommend the brand Follow Your Heart for dairy-free cheese.
1 lb pork breakfast sausage
3/4 cup red pepper, diced
3/4 cup onion, diced
10 oz (2 cups) frozen hashbrowns
1-2 cups spinach, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup whole milk (or coconut milk)
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar (or 1/2 cup dairy-free cheese), plus more for topping
Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, onion and red pepper. Break up sausage into small pieces and cook until the vegetables have softened and the sausage is no longer pink. Drain any excess grease.
Add the spinach and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
In a large bowl combine the remaining ingredients. Add the sausage mixture and mix until totally combined. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Top with the remaining cheese. At this point you can either bake the casserole or refrigerate the casserole and bake the next day.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, uncovered until the eggs are set. Let cool slightly before serving. Enjoy!
