Recipe of the week – Cheesy Hash Brown Bake

It’s Thursday, so that means it’s once again cheater recipe time.

So what’s a “Cheater” recipe?
It’s a way to end up with a delicious home cooked meal, side dish or dessert without spending lots of time to get there.

This week’s cheater recipe…

Cheesy Hash Brown Bake

This one is sure to be a favorite. Hash browns make a delicious crust for the yummy sausage, egg and cheese filling. Great for breakfast, brunch, or at our house, dinner, since I don’t make this kind of stuff early in the mornings.

Oops! I forgot to put the grated cheese in the picture.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg (20 ounces) shredded hash browns (thawed)
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp beef bouillon granules
  • 1 lb. ground pork sausage
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion (You can use the frozen pre-chopped kind to save time.)
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup grated cheese

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, combine hash browns, butter and bouillon.

3. Meanwhile, in large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.

4. In large bowl combine the cooked sausage mixture, cottage cheese, eggs and shredded cheese.
Pour into hash brown crust and bake at 350 for 40 – 45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.

*For a healthier version of this yummy dish substitute turkey sausage for pork sausage, and fat free grated cheese and fat free cottage cheese for the regular versions. Also substitute eggs with egg beaters or egg whites.
