Is this recipe spicy?
The addition of the green chilis does bring the heat! The amount listed in the ingredients adds a small kick but nothing that anyone can’t handle. If you want to ensure your children eat it you can substitute for peppers instead. Like a little more heat from your food? Add more green chilies to the mix. Make sure to taste before you serve.

2 lbs. Ground breakfast sausage
2 lbs. Frozen hashbrown potatoes
2 C. Shredded cheddar cheese
9 large eggs

Let’s start baking your Make-Ahead Sausage Hashbrown
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Saute the sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat on the stove until completely browned. Remove and set aside.
In the same skillet, heat the hashbrowns until lightly browned and mostly defrosted about 8-10 minutes.
Layer the hashbrowns on the bottom of a 9×13 greased casserole dish.
Add the sausage on top of the hashbrowns.
Sprinkle the cheese over the meat, and add the green chilis on top of the cheese.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Whisk to combine well.
Pour the egg mixture over the casserole.
Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes until the eggs are completely set.
Serve warm and enjoy!
