Breakfast is, without a doubt, our favorite meal of the day. Eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes…you name it, we like it. Our favorite dishes, however, are those that come together relatively easily and that are perfect for serving a big group of people. We tried out this sausage, hash brown breakfast casserole this weekend and were not disappointed! It’s easy, filling and everyone love it, so you know we’ll be making it again soon!
