Mmmmm Cheesy Sausage and Egg Hash Brown casserole.
If you frequent my INSTAGRAM page, you will know I love my breakfasts.
Breakfast's to me are the most important meal of the day, therefore what I eat at breakfast sets me up for the rest of the day. If I eat bad, then it is usually a spiral downhill from there on. If I eat good, I feel well satiated and the eating good carries on through the rest of the day.
At every breakfast, I try to stick to the rule of a good source of protein and plenty of speed foods. That to me is the perfect combination of a great breakfast.
Usually at the weekend I like to cook up something that I can reheat each morning and add some speed food to the side like fruit or a complimentary speed veg, or combine the whole lot together when making something like my Breakfast Hash.
I even have a delicious Actifry Breakfast Hash for those of you with an actifry.
This dish was delicious - Homemade sausage crumbles, topped with whisked eggs, grated potato and cheese all baked in the oven.
This whole dish served four, so it will only last a couple of mornings, but you can double or even triple this recipe to make a bigger dish to serve more or to divide up for breakfast for the week.
It is great eaten cold or can be heated up in the oven for a few mins at 180c/350f.
