And GEO-NORMOUS it is! Ok so it is Ginormous but since this is hubby's recipe, he gets to call it Geo-normous!
He has been telling me "you don't have a breakfast casserole on your website", because, I guess he trolls my website for hours at a time and checks on these things! ROFL. Seriously, do you guys know how fun and hilarious this guy is? Anyway, so he said, just make something easy that anyone could make and that will feed a ton of people. My response was "Ok, give me an ingredient list and I will work it out". I guess he didn't realize how easy a breakfast casserole would be to make! He gave me his list, and I picked it up. Now fast forward to today, when I finally made it. SO good, so perfect for a crowd. SO PERFECT for making ahead, so perfect for...everything!
You might shriek at the ingredients. Keep two things in mind, 1) a man requested this and these ingredients, and 2)this should feed a good 8 people. I would serve this with some bread and some fruit and call it breakfast!
Heeeeeeeeeeere we go...............!!
1 cup milk
1 tsp. onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 lb. pork sausage, browned
1 lb. bacon, fried crispy and then cut into small pieces
2 cups cheese (your choice, I went with cheddar)
1 pkg (just short of 2lbs) shredded hash browns.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. In a frying pan, brown sausage, when it is done, remove and place on a paper towel lined plate. In the same skillet, crisp up your bacon well. Crumble or cut into smaller pieces when cooled and drained of grease. Now brown off your hashbrowns, in 2 or 3 batches. When they are done, place them in the bottom of a 9x13 (ish) pan that has been sprayed with cooking oil. Spread them out evenly and sprinkle on the sausage and bacon. Now in a bowl combine the eggs, milk, onion powder, salt and pepper and whisk well. You could even use a hand mixer to incorporate a little more air into these eggs. Gently pour over the ingredients already in your baking dish, top with the cheese and bake 30=35 minutes.
Now, put on the coffee and dig in!
