Breakfast casserole

It's Labor Day weekend, you have a crowd of people to feed in the morning.  What do you do?  You make this.  I've put breakfast casseroles, quiches, etc on the blog before but I will say that this one was my fave so far...even though we were camping in the RV, the oven ended up not working, and we had to put it on the grill burning the bottom layer and leaving a campfire-esque taste to the hashbrowns that werent torched...it was good enough to see past all of those facts and realize that this was goooooood schtuff!  Like if I had a "BEST OF" stamp to put on my fave posts...this would get the breakfast one!

Here we go:

2 lbs bulk pork sausage (turkey worked great too)
1 medium bell pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cups frozen hash browns
2 cups Bisquick mix
2 cups skim milk
4 eggs (6 if you just use the whites like I do)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (2%)
Pepper to taste

Grease your dish and cook the sausage, pepper, and onion in a skillet.  Drain that and then add it to the potatoes and cheese, stir it up and throw it in the baking dish. Stir the Bisquick, milk, and eggs together and pour it on top of your potato/meat/veggie mixture.  Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes at 400 degrees or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with a bit more cheese and bake for another couple minutes to melt that....now serve!  Here's the before pic, I seem to forget about food pics when I premake stuff for later...so this is all you get.  Sorry, Charlie!  But you won't be sorry if you try this....


Sidenote: If you dont want the 12 servings this yields, half all your ingredients and throw this in a pie tin to bake so you won't have so many leftovers.

  5. I've frozen a recipe very similar to this. I bet this one would work too. I could see separating in half. Using 1 pie pan and freezing the other. Think it would work? I need to put a casserole in the freezer for a lady in my church for when she returns home from the hospital...
