Sausage bake is a great dish to make ahead, split it up, and reheat when you’re in a rush.

And, don’t forget, like a true southerner a breakfast dish is always perfect for supper, as well.

I’ve shared several recipes in the past month from my friend Beth. She loves to cook and always has the tastiest recipes, is so organized, and is the best multitasker I know.

Plus, she has a large family and really knows how to entertain well. So, anytime you see anything from Beth, scroll down and print it out–you’ll thank her!

Beth shared this recipe with me, we made it, and everyone loved it. If you’ve been on this blog a lot you’ll know I love easy recipes and this is one of them.

How To Make Sausage Bake

Sausage and onions cooking in a skillet.

Start by adding the sausage and diced onions to a skillet.

You can use milk, medium, or spicy for this recipe–whatever you prefer. I used mild because I am a bit of a spicy wimp.

Next, add the hash brown potatoes to the skillet, toss, and cook for five minutes. Then, add the cheese and toss.

My hash brown potatoes were still frozen when I added them to the skillet, but if you leave them sitting out to thaw a little that will work, as well.

Remove the tin foil and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes or until the cheese and shredded potatoes are golden brown.

We like our cheese a little extra crunchy here, so we cooked it the full 20 minutes.

Can I freeze the sausage bake?

Yes, you can freeze the sausage bake, just make sure it cools off a little before adding it to the freezer.

When you’re ready to eat the casserole, thaw it out the day before and reheat the sausage to at least 160-degrees before eating.
