"I found the concept for this recipe on the web, but I have added and changed so many things, its not even that recipe anymore. Of course you can add your favorite ingredients to the egg mixture, such as mushrooms, etc... Enjoy!"

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F Grease the bottom and sides of a 13" x 9" pan with vegetable oil.

Step 2

In a bowl, add hash browns and vegetable oil. Mix until potatoes are evenly coated. Press potatoes into bottom and up sides of pan. Put into center of oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until browned. Remove from oven and set aside. (I spray potatoes with cooking spray to make sure they brown nicely)

Step 3

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add diced onion and jalapenos and mix. Pour egg mixture over pre-baked potatoes. Place two rows of sausage links on top egg mixture down the length of the pan. Cover and place in oven.

Step 4

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until center is firm. Remove from oven, uncover. Top with cheese and parsley. Return to oven uncovered and bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven; allow to set 5-10 minutes before serving.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This would be a great dish on a brunch menu or a lazy weekend late morning breakfast or light supper. The time involved means it won't be an everyday occurrence though. Because we halved the whole recipe, some observations may not be true for the whole, but next time, we'll reduce the salt and cheese by more than half. Even so, it puffed up so high that the sausages seemed to float on a cloud of eggs and smelled so good that the family peered into the kitchen to see what was cooking. A side of fresh fruit compliments it well. Thanks Dissie.
