Au Gratin Potato Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast Casseroles….

They can be the same ol’ same ol’ and I just couldn’t do it again. I had to make a new casserole, and it had to be good! I had a holiday brunch for 25 people, and they had ALL tasted my old casseroles. I could not embarrass myself….I am a food blogger for heavens sake. Well, I threw the dice after being inspired near the boxed potatoes in Albertsons and I was rewarded by an empty dish and a lot of “YUM” ‘s!!! Enjoy!

Missy’s Au Gratin Breakfast Casserole

(serves 8)

2 boxes scalloped potatoes – reduce the water by 1 cup
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
9 eggs
salt and peppa
1/2 cup half and half
1 pound breakfast sausage, cooked and drained

Bake the potatoes (minus the 1 cup of water) for only 20 minutes. Pull out of oven and allow to set. Then whisk the eggs, salt and pepper and half and half and scramble over medium heat (this is the difference, the eggs are cooked in advance). Layer the cooked sausage over the potatoes. Layer the eggs over the sausage, then cover with cheese. Cover casserole with foil and bake at 325 for about 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
