This is one of my favorite breakfast casseroles! I found this recipe on allrecipes.com.
You will need:
3/4 of a package of a sausage roll (I used "regular" and added salt & pepper and probably about 1/2 t. of rubbed sage), cooked and drained (I have also used the turkey sausage crumbles by Jimmy Dean.)
3 small potatoes, shredded, drained (I soaked up the water with a paper towel)
1/4 c. butter, melted
3/4 of an 8 oz. bag of shredded cheddar cheese
chopped onion, based on your preference (I probably used about 1/4 c.)
1 c. cottage cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8x8 dish with cooking spray.
Stir together potatoes and melted butter. Spread into bottom of baking dish. In a bowl, combine sausage, cheddar cheese, onion, cottage cheese and eggs. Pour over potatoes.
Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour or until done.
*This is half of the original recipe. If you need more, double it and put it in a 9x13. The amount of butter above was the amount for a 9x13...I accidentally forgot to halve it.
