I just can’t get over how easy this sausage and potatoes casserole recipe is. I really don’t like spending all my time in the kitchen, especially first thing in the morning. This cheesy dish solves that problem!

How to Make Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Casserole:

  1. Before beginning, peel the potatoes and cut them into 1/4 inch slices. Then chop the onions.
  2. Place the sliced potatoes in a large saucepan and cover them with cold water.
  3. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce heat and cook for 8-10 minutes (just enough to make the potatoes fork tender).
  4. Crumble the sausage in a large skillet and add in the onion. Cook until the sausage is cooked through and onion becomes translucent. Transfer the mixture to a paper towel lined plate when done.
  5. When the potatoes are done cooking, drain them and place them in the prepared baking dish. Then pour the melted butter over them.
  6. Spread the sausage and onion mixture over the potatoes, and toss it all together.
  7. Top the sausage and potato bake with cheese, then bake uncovered for 7-10 minutes at 350°F.

Throw in a bit of parsley when it’s done, and serve it while it’s hot! This cheesy sausage potato casserole is just so simple.
