This has become our family's Christmas morning breakfast, along with Clone of a Cinnabon cinnamon rolls. Well, at least for the past two years...is that long enough to be a tradition?
I love it because it's easy to prepare, doesn't have a long list of ingredients, and best of all, it's delicious.
I like to brown up the meat the day before and on Christmas morning, I just throw the other ingredients together, add the sausage, and bake while we're opening some presents. Works great for us!
Recipe: (from Allrecipes)
1 lb. sausage (I've used maple sausage and turkey sausage..both excellent)
1 lb. frozen southern-style hash browns, thawed
1/2 c. milk
4 green onions, chopped
1-1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350°.
In a large skillet, brown sausage over medium heat until no more pink remains; drain.
Beat eggs with milk in a large bowl, then add all other ingredients and stir to combine. Pour into a greased 13 x 9" pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until set and lightly browned.
