The Night Before Christmas Brunch Bake


I have invited a couple of families to join us for Christmas brunch, the menu of the morning was sausage brunch bake, apple raisins oatmeal and fruit salad. My friends were really impressed by how simple this recipe is. It takes little preparation time, and about 1 hour cooking time. I made the oatmeal the night before in my crock pot, and while this casserole was in the oven, I relaxed over my morning coffee and enjoyed the quietness in the house before the excitement.

Here is the recipe from Food. com


    • 8 frozen hash brown patties
    • 2 cups cubed ham or 2 cups crumbled bacon or 2 cups browned sausage
    • 2 cups shredded cheese, divided
