Turkey Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole
I don’t know how it is in your house on weekday mornings but in mine we are creatures of habit, mostly because we are all in a rush! We all tend to have the same old breakfast every single day. For the grown ups that’s usually a cup of tea or coffee and grabbing something as we run out the door, and for the kids it typically involves nothing more exciting than breakfast cereal or toast.
On Saturday mornings we like to treat ourselves to a nice home cooked breakfast, I’m a big fan of bacon and eggs so that’s often what we have. Every other week or so I like to change it up a little and cook something different so when I saw a recipe similar to this one in an old Taste of Home cookbook I have, I knew that everyone would love it.
Because this casserole is so simple to prepare you could easily make for a busy weekday morning, it’s not just for the weekend! If you cook the turkey sausage and onions the night before and prepare the remainder of the ingredients ahead of time then all you need to do in the morning is turn on the oven and bake it while everyone is getting ready.
If you need a great recipe for breakfast waffles or pancakes then you really love my gluten free pancakes and gluten free strawberry waffles, they’re also quick and easy to make. I also came across this Overnight Fireman’s Breakfast Casserole that looks delicious, so I’ve added to my “recipes to try” list.
