Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole Recipe


  • 6 medium potatoes washed, peeled, and shredded
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon potato starch you can use corn starch or arrowroot
  • 1 cup milk
  • About 1/2 pound sausage
  • salt


  1. In a frying pan on the stovetop, cook up the sausage (I use my homemade sausage patties!) until cooked through. Place the sausage in the bottom of a non-greased 8x8 baking dish.
  2. In the same frying pan, fry the onion in the butter. (Cooking it in the same pan will help is soak up the sausage leftovers and give it even more flavor.)
  3. When the onion turns transparent, turn the burner down to low and add in the milk and starch. Make sure you are continually stirring at this post so the milk doesn't scald. Cook until the sauce starts to thicken.
  4. In a large bowl, mix your shredded potato with the onion/milk sauce. Stir well so it's all mixed together.
  5. Pour the mixture over the top of the sausage layer in the baking dish.
  6. Finally, sprinkle your dish with shredded cheddar cheese.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes until the Breakfast Hashbrown Casserole is bubbly and slightly brown on the top.
