• Extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 1 pound turkey sausage
  • 10 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk or half and half
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 (20-ounce) bag of frozen shredded potatoes, thawed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the sausage to the skillet and break up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Once cooked through, remove skillet from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper.
  4. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and pour in the shredded potatoes. Pour the sausage mixture over the potatoes and spread evenly.
  5. Pour the egg mixture over the sausage and top with the shredded cheese. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 45 to 50 minutes.
  6. If making ahead of time, place casserole in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. Allow to sit at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before baking.
