The Night the Lights Went out Breakfast Bake

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Laura123

I made 5 pans of this for the electrical crews that came to help restore power to our town after an ice storm, hence the name. It's easily put together the night before and kept in the fridge until the next morning to bake. I used sausage but cooked ham would make a fine substitute. Prep times are approximate.

So good!! I liked the hash browns on the bottom rather than bread so it wasn't soggy. I made 1/2 the recipe and used diced up sausage links since I didn't have the roll of sausage. I am also sure I put more cheese that is called for, but we LOVE cheese! Will be making this again!! Made for Spring PAC 2014.
