Sausage veggie breakfast casserole

I take a tiny bit of pride in this recipe. It is a recipe that I have tweaked and retweaked over the span of a few years until I finally feel like I have gotten everything juuuuust right. I love it. It is a wonderfully cheesy, eggy, meaty, potato-y, veggie-filled breakfast that makes mouths water and guests rave.

In a large skillet, cook a 16-oz. package of ground sausage on medium heat until partially cooked through.

Add to the skillet:

1 chopped green pepper

1 chopped small onion

1 8-oz. package fresh sliced mushrooms

Cook until veggies are tender and meat is cooked all the way through. Drain and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.

In a large bowl, beat together:

12 eggs

1 10.75-oz. can condensed cream of mushroom with roasted garlic soup

1 1/2 cups milk

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Stir the sausage-veggie mixture into it.

Pour into prepared baking dish.

Mix in a 32-oz. package of frozen potato rounds

Bake in preheated oven for 50-55 minutes.

Sprinkle 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese over top of the casserole.

Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

This a perfect meal to prepare when having guests over for breakfast. Hopefully nobody will feel the need to complain about "all of those muuuushrooms," like some people I know.

Have you ever done this with the frozen hash brown potatoes instead of Tater Tots?

CB from MN: No, I have not used frozen hash browns in place of the tater tots, but I bet it would be great! If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
