During the busy holiday season, we may have many people to feed and little time to do so.  This recipe came together for Christmas morning breakfast. It was quick and easy to put together, yet delicious and hearty! Top it with sour cream, salsa, or hot sauce.

Drake’s Place Breakfast Casserole

1 lb Maple Breakfast Sausage
1 Onion, chopped
3 large or 6 small potatoes, shredded
1 cup cheese, shredded
1 dozen eggs

1/4 cup milk or water

1) Pre-heat oven to 350°.
2) Cook sausage with chopped onions ahead of time and cool.
3) Beat eggs with milk or water. Combine shredded potatoes, cheese, sausage, and onion.
4) Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Test if done by poking knife into the center. If it
comes out clean, then it’s done. If not, cook 10 to 15 minutes more.

Serves 8-10 people. Cut recipe in half to serve 4-5 people. You can even portion it out and freeze and reheat for an easy breakfast.
