“I am not sure where this recipe originally came from. It is the best breakfast casserole I have ever tried. I usually cook the sausage the night before and mix it with the cheeses and other ingredients so I have less work that morning. Be sure to put the hash browns in the frig the night before, as well, so they will be thawed.”
