Freshly Baked Simple Gluten-Free Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast Casseroles

Personally, I think delicious breakfast casseroles are wonderful served for any meal, any day of the week. However, they definitely come in handy whenever you need to serve a group of people, especially during the holidays

My daughter, Anna, and her family, also enjoy breakfast casseroles. Anna makes a delicious Healthy Breakfast Casserole and one that’s also naturally gluten-free.

Layers

This Simple Gluten-Free Breakfast Casserole consists of a layer of hash brown potatoes, sausage, onion, red pepper, cottage cheese, eggs, parsley, salt, and pepper, and cheese! Mmmm! So good! 

Note: See the pretty casserole dish I’m using? One of my dear friends gave me two casserole dishes from the Pioneer Woman’s Collection and I am using the 2.3-quart size dish for this breakfast casserole. The other is a slightly larger  3.6-quart dish. I use them on a regular basis and simply love them! Thanks, Veronica!!!

Instructions: 

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Next, in a large bowl, combine hash browns, melted butter, salt, and pepper. Press mixture into the bottom and slightly up the sides of a greased 2.3-quart  casserole dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until the edges are browned.

Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook sausage until meat is no longer pink. Spoon off excess grease, then remove the sausage from the skillet and place in a paper towel-lined bowl; set aside.

Next, add onion and red pepper to the skillet and saute just until onions turn translucent. Using a slotted spoon, remove them from skillet and place in the same bowl as the sausage. Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes. Remove paper towels, mix sausage, onion, and red peppers altogether.

In a large bowl, add eggs; lightly beat with a wire whisk. Stir in cottage cheese, parsley, and cheese. Add meat mixture; stir until well combined. Pour mixture into the baked hash brown crust.
