Family Favorite Breakfast Casserole

This casserole is something my FAMILY looks forward to all year, as it's a tradition to have it for breakfast Christmas morning. You can prepare it the NIGHT BEFORE and then take it out the next morning to bake, or you can do it the morning of and it's still VERY EASY! It's also a dish that is just as good for dinner. Oh, and always I like to eat mine with a bit of ketchup . . .

Breakfast Casserole
1 package (32 ounces) shredded hash browns, cooked according to package directions
1/2 pound sausage, browned and drained
1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
10 to 12 eggs
salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 to 2 cups grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place prepared hash browns in the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan prepared with nonstick spray. Spread the sausage and bacon over top. Scramble the eggs in a skillet until almost cooked through, but not quite. Season with salt and pepper and then stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Pour eggs over meats and spread remaining cheese over top to cover. Bake for 30 minutes and then serve with ketchup if desired. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

TIP: You can use 1 pound of any favorite breakfast meat, such as sausage, bacon, or ham, or any combination of breakfast meats to equal 1 pound. AND, if making it the night before, just try to pull it out of the fridge about 30-45 minutes before baking it so it can come to room temp.
