Turkey Sausage Breakfast Casserole
I first made this casserole for Christmas and have made it several times since as it has become a favorite Saturday morning treat. Each time I tweak it a bit and add different items to spice it up. My favorite so far is the addition of fresh mushroom slices. Takes very little effort and the most difficult part is waiting an hour for it to bake. Enjoy.
1 pound ground turkey sausage
4 eggs, lightly beaten
4 green onions, finally chopped
1 16 ounce package frozen hash browns
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese (I use the low fat variety)
1. Place turkey sausage in a skillet and cook over medium high heat until evenly browned. Drain and crumble and set aside. (If you prefer you can substitute pre-cooked sausage crumbles that can be found in the same area as the bacon and breakfast sausage. )
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3. In a large bowl, stir together eggs, green onions, hash browns, milk, cheddar cheese and cooked sausage. Pour mixture into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
4. Place in preheated oven and bake for 60 minutes.
My add ins have included chopped red, yellow and green peppers, and mushrooms so far. You can add whatever you like and it always turns out wonderfully. Let me know what you come up with.

Shredded, or chopped hash browns?
I used shredded but I would imagine chopped would work fine and dandy. 🙂
Thanks. Good recipe!
Oh yeah! I would definitely add mushrooms and I would crumble up MorningStar’s Original Veggie Sausage patties. CH loves them! I don’t have the stuff on hand for this morning but it could very well be a treat tomorrow for lunch or breakfast for dinner. Thanks Beth Ann!
You are so welcome!!! Glad I could pass along an easy one for you–and yep–the Morning Star stuff would work great in it!
This looks good! We love egg casseroles. There are never leftovers. I don’t know why I didn’t think to use turkey sausage before. The regular pork sausage gets overly rich. This looks perfect.
Exactly! The turkey sausage takes a bit of the grease out and it is really an easy concoction but tasty!
Great comfort food.
Okay, so maybe I wouldn’t starve at the Chile’s residence after all!! (But hold the onions please)
I would take care of you, Honest. I would never let anyone go away hungry and there is always tea!
We love breakfast casseroles and like you we are forever tweaking recipes and throwing different things in it! Easy to feed a big, hungry family!
Exactly—it is a perfect way to feed a family. Chris and I have lots of leftovers.
I make something very similar and we love it. I haven’t used hash browns, tho! Crunch.
It is yummy crunchy!
This sounds delicious! Hubby would definitely add tomatoes to this, not me – I hate cooked tomatoes.
Oh tomatoes might be interesting, too. I had not thought of that. But hey—I would leave them out for you!
Thank you Beth Ann, you are just this kind of thoughtful person! When hubby makes us an omelette for dinner, he only puts tomatoes on his side too!
Oh this would have been perfect to have while watching the hockey game this morning!!
We ate cold cereal because we did not want to miss anything! LOL
Oh I bet!!!! Glued to the telly!
This looks delicious! 🙂
Thanks, Kristen. It really is easy and yummy!
My SIL makes a similar recipe. Will have to try this.
It is pretty yummy and easy. A no brainer. Which is what I need most of the time.

It is so easy—you can make it the night before even and then pop it in the oven. Thanks for stopping by, Cristen!
We frequently enjoy this casserole with slight variations. I love the fact that it can be made the night before.
Totally agree. It is so easy and can be spiced up with whatever you have.
