-Amish Breakfast Casserole

As I was preparing menu items for our guests from South Africa,
I came across this wonderful breakfast casserole recipe.
Dave is not much for casseroles, but he loved this one!
It's from an Amish Country Inn in Sugarcreek, OH.

I usually "layer" items in a breakfast casserole, but this one is so much better all mixed together,
then poured into the baking dish.
Enjoy!

 

Amish Breakfast Casserole

 

-1 pound sausage  (I used Jimmy Dean, regular) 
-10 large eggs, lightly beaten
-4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes  (I use Ore-Ida country style hash brown shredded potatoes)
-1 tablespoon butter
-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
-1 1/4 cups shredded swiss cheese
-1 1/2 cups small curd cottage cheese
-Butter flavor pam cooking spray

 

In a skillet, brown sausage until fully cooked.  I like to chop it up into little pieces so that it cooks easily and mixes well.  Drain grease off.  At the same time, place butter in another skillet (I like to lightly spray with Pam cooking spray also), and cook the potatoes until thawed.  They do not need to be brown or crispy.  In a large bowl, place the eggs and lightly beat with a whisk or fork.  Combine the rest of the ingredients with eggs.  Stir well to mix.  Transfer mixture to a 13x9x2 baking dish that has been sprayed with butter flavor Pam cooking spray (or you could grease dish with regular butter). 

Bake, uncovered, at 350° F for 45 minutes.  Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

For variations of this recipe, you could use 1 pound bacon instead of the sausage, or 1/2 pound sausage & 1/2 pound bacon.
You could add mushrooms, onions, etc.  These would need to be cooked in a skillet before combining with egg mixture.
