We are so excited to be partnering with our friends at Jones Dairy Farm to bring you a scrumptious breakfast or brunch recipe perfect for the holidays with family and friends, starring one of my favorite ingredients: Sausage!!!




I really love brunch but my family prefers breakfast. I like to relax in the morning where my crew wakes up famished. Breakfast casseroles give us the best of both. I can prep breakfast the night before and toss it in the oven in the morning. I get to kick back while it is in the oven and the family gets to eat pretty soon after they wake up.

Hearty breakfasts really rock my world! This one is loaded with bacon, sausage and eggs with potatoes and veggies. It is amazing and stress-free, which is right up my alley.That is one of the many reasons I absolutely love love love make ahead breakfasts!

A hearty casserole like this makes an amazing breakfast, lunch, dinner. Not to mention it is incidentally gluten-free which makes it perfect for company!






I will let you all know that you can pick up Jones Dairy Farm products at your local retailer. The company’s products are distributed nationwide, so be sure to check out their product locator so see where you can pick some up. If you’re looking for the breakfast sausage, it’s in the freezer section!

      1. I am thinking of trying this recipe. How did it turn out?

    4. Tried this recipe today! It was delicious but definitely took longer to cook than I expected. I think it would be helpful to cover this with foil during the first 30 min of cooking and then remove the last 5 to 10 min. Thank you for the recipe!!

    5. I have made it "as is" and loved it. But i have also made it in mini loaf pans, some sausage, some bacon, some no meat for the vegetarians. Grab and go breakfast meals.

    7. I've made this a few times after seeing it on She's In Her Apron YouTube channel. I half the recipe and actually Fry up the hashbrown, onion and peppers. Otherwise I follow it and love it. We have it at least twice a month as our breakfast for dinner meal.

    8. I’m excited to try this, but it’s taking forever to bake! Either bake time or temperature are way off for me. I prepared this last night and set it out for 30 minutes on the counter, and it’s cutrently been in the oven for an hour at 375 and looks like it needs another 10-15 (center eggs are still very runny). Disappointing too, bc it’s making us late for the breakfast party we’re supposed to take it to! Hopefully it will set soon so we can go!

    13. I've made this multiple times I half the recipe there is only 3 of us. We get lots of leftovers also. The only thing I do different is I fry the potatoes mix before mixing it in with the meats and cheese. Awesome recipe Thank you.

    18. Can biscuits be added to make this into a comfort bake?

    19. This was delicious. I used shredded hash browns instead of cubed and replaced some of the sausage with bacon. It looked a bit dried out on top so next time I will cover it for the first half of cooking.

    20. Turned out perfect. I did alter it though. I did 30 min covered, 10-15 uncovered which worked perfect. I also added 1/4C red onion in with the sausage. It was great for a late brunch with plenty left over!

    21. There looks like there are green and red peppers, but are not listed in the ingredients!
