  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 package (30 oz) frozen shredded hashbrowns, thawed
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  • Cook the Sausage:
    • In a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until browned and cooked through, breaking it into crumbles. Remove excess grease.
  • Add Vegetables:
    • Add chopped onions and bell peppers to the skillet with the sausage. Cook until the vegetables are softened. Remove from heat.
  • Prepare the Sauce:
    • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the cream of mushroom soup, milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, and paprika.
  • Combine Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the thawed hashbrowns, sausage and vegetable mixture, and shredded cheese. Pour the sauce over the mixture and gently fold everything together until well combined.

  • Assemble the Casserole:
    • Transfer the mixture into a greased 9×13-inch baking dish, spreading it evenly.
  • Refrigerate Overnight:
    • Cover the casserole with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to meld and the hashbrowns to soak up the liquid.
  • Bake:
    • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Remove the plastic wrap from the casserole and bake for about 45-55 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the center is set.
  • Garnish and Serve:
    • Optional: Garnish with fresh parsley before serving. Let it cool for a few minutes before cutting into squares and serving.

Enjoy your delicious make-ahead sausage hashbrown casserole! This recipe is perfect for a crowd or for a cozy family breakfast.
