Sausage and Potato Breakfast Casserole

sausage and potato breakfast casserole

This recipe is pretty similar to my smoked sausage and potato casserole but uses breakfast sausage instead of smoked sausage. This isn’t school morning quick but would make an excellent Saturday or Sunday morning breakfast served with buttermilk biscuits and fruit.


Sausage and Potato Breakfast Casserole

Recipe by Micha @ Cookin’ Mimi


  • 1/2 pound breakfast sausage. Doesn’t matter if it is pork or turkey
  • 3 or 4 large potatoes
  • 3 Tablespoons fat. This can be butter, drippings from the pan or a combination of both.
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups milk
  • To taste salt
  • To taste pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheese. I used cheddar.

Cooking Directions

  1. Scrub potatoes and place in a large pot. Cover with water, season with salt, and cook until fork tender. Drain and set aside until cool enough to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  3. In a large pan over moderate heat, cook and crumble sausage until well browned. Remove from skillet.
  4. Make sure there is 3 Tablespoons of fat in the skillet. Sprinkle in the flour.
  5. Cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes. The flour should still be light in color but have lost the raw smell.
  6. Pour in the water, whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Let cook for a minute or two then whisk in the milk.
  7. Reduce heat to medium low and cook for 10 minutes or until the gravy has thickened enough to coat a spoon.
  8. Stir in the sausage and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  9. Spray a 9 inch square pan with no stick spray.
  10. Peel and slice the potatoes.
  11. Alternate layers of potatoes and gravy beginning with potatoes and ending with gravy.
  12. Sprinkle the cheese on top.
  13. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly and the cheese has melted and begins to brown around the edges.
