Hash Brown and Egg Casserole

Looking for a last minute breakfast idea for tomorrow morning? I've got just the thing.
A few weeks ago, I had a few girls over for a dinner party and I went with a breakfast theme. I tried out two casseroles - this was a crowd favorite.  Normally on Christmas morning we have a large family breakfast. This year we will be attending church services together so we will need a quicker breakfast, so this will be perfect!

1 (2 pound package) frozen hash browns potatoes, thawed
1 pound pork sausage
1 small onion, diced
7 eggs
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
12 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 2 quart baking dish. Place the hash browns in the bottom of the baking dish.
2. Heat a skillet and cook and stir the sausage and onion until sausage is crumbly, evenly browned and no longer pink; drain.
3. Whisk together the eggs, milks, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and pour over the hash brown potatoes. Layer with half the cheddar cheese, the sausage mixture, and the remaining cheese. Cover with foil.
4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove the cover; return the casserole to the oven and bake until a knife insterted into the cetner comes out clean, about 10 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

This recipe was originally from and has been slightly adapted for our preferences.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas.
