Sausage Potato Egg Bake Recipe from Good Cheap Eats

Breakfast is one of my children’s love languages. Seriously. They come by it honestly. My husband’s favorite meal of the day is breakfast. It’s pretty sweet. One of our first dates was breakfast out.

Mornings are when I want to get to work on writing projects. I tend to think more clearly in the morning. I don’t really want to futz with breakfast-making.

How does one reconcile a family’s love for breakfast and one’s own agenda to be out of the kitchen? To make this Italian Sausage Potato Egg Bake.

This sausage potato egg bake comes together super quickly. It can be made in advance as a casserole or as components that assemble in a flash. It serves a crowd without your having to stand at the stove messing.

In a word — or two — this is breakfast perfection.

Italian Sausage Potato Egg Bake

There are lots of ways you can go with a sausage potato egg bake. Add green chiles and cumin and go southwest. Add thyme and tarragon and call it a crustless quiche. Leave out the herbs and you’ve got something like a Spanish tortilla.

Use Italian sausage and basil and top it all with bruschetta? You’ve got an Italian breakfast mash-up.

And something worth putting aside your morning projects for.

How I make this cheap:

Here are some of the strategies you can use to make this recipe more economical:

  • Do a price comparison. I know that Costco is the best place to buy ingredients like eggs and sausage when there isn’t a great sale elsewhere. I keep track of prices so that I know who has the best deal where.
  • Stock up on ingredients when they are on sale. For instance, when I see a great price on eggs, I buy a lot. This often happens at Ralphs where I’ll find organic eggs marked down for less than $2. I recently found Applegate uncured bacon on manager’s special. I loaded up my freezer with all that was there.
  • Use a lower priced alternative. Sausage out of your target price? You can sub a cheaper meat like ground turkey, beef, or pork. The cheese and milk can even be omitted completely and lower the cost of the dish.
  • Make double! I purposely portioned the potatoes and sausage so that one egg bake uses 1/2 of a bag of frozen hash browns and 1/2 a package of Italian sausage. This makes it super easy to make a double batch and freeze one casserole for another night, thereby avoiding convenience items or restaurant fare — which saves you money. 🙂

Tools I use to make this recipe easy:

This is a pretty straight-forward dish. You don’t need any fancy equipment. However, having some good basic kitchen tools can really make your time in the kitchen more enjoyable. Over time, I’ve honed my collection so that they are perfect for my needs. Here are the tools that I like to use in this recipe.

  • plastic cutting boards – I have blue boards for veggies and white boards for meat.
  • Ergo Chef chef’s knife – I’ve had my set for several years and they work well.
  • large skillet with lid – I have two of these since I love this model so much.
  • Pyrex measure bowl – Great for measuring and mixing in one spot.
  • whisk – Get one with a sealed barrel so you can’t throw it in the dishwasher.
  • 9×13-inch pan – I love the ones that come with plastic lids for easy storage and stacking in the freezer.

To freeze: Cool the sausage mixture before placing it in the pan. Once the dish is assembled, cover and store in the freezer for up to one month. Thaw completely in the refrigerator before baking.

You can also freeze the fillings as a kit. Bag the meat mixture, cheese, and frozen hash browns separately and then collect the three bags in one bigger bag. Label with baking instructions and freeze.
