Hungry Man's Breakfast Casserole

(2 servings)

  • 1 pound bulk breakfast sausage
  • 3 cups shredded potatoes - drained and pressed
  • 1/4 cup butter - melted
  • 12 ounces mild Cheddar cheese - shredded
  • 1/2 cup onion - chopped
  • 1/2 cup green pepper - chopped
  • 1 pound small curd cottage cheese
  • 6 jumbo eggs
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.

Stir together shredded potatoes and butter. Line bottom and sides of a medium glass baking dish with potato mixture. Combine sausage, cheddar cheese, onion, pepper, cottage cheese and eggs; pour mixture into baking dish.

Bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of the casserole comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

This works for hungry women too. And hungry kids especially! The ingredients are mixed together so you get a taste of sausage, cheese and potatoes in every bite.
