    A Johnsonville recipe that we served this at my sister's wedding brunch, this is a great breakfast prepared the night before. Especially good for morning entertaining. Prep time does not include overnight refrigeration. Cooking time includes sausage cooking.

      Made this last night for breakfast today. A nice change from the usual eggs/meat/pancake fare. I cut the recipe in half as there are 3 of us and it fit perfectly into a 2-qt casserole dish. The store was out of green onions, so I used onion powder; I had a jar of roasted red peppers so I used those. The dish took longer to bake than directed, but my hashbrowns weren't quite thawed when I put it together and I think the extra moisture from the thawing was the culprit. The dish itself is fairly bland but lends itself well to the addition of salsa (dh) or ketchup (dd). If you know your family likes things a little spicy, I would recommend trying a hot sausage and/or adding red pepper sauce/flakes to the mixture. I call recipes like this 'blank canvas' as they are easy to prepare and the add-in possibilities are endless; change up the cheese, add veggies, try different meats, maybe flavored hashbrowns, serve with a spicy gravy or even maple syrup, etc.
