Need a breakfast casserole that can be frozen? This Hash Brown Casserole is easy to make with just a few ingredients!
The most important thing I do every week is make sure my family has an easy breakfast to eat in the mornings.
When you wake up early and have to get to work, you may not want to spend the time cooking a breakfast every single day.
That’s where meal prep and freezer meals come in! With a little bit of prep, you can have a full week of breakfast in the fridge or freezer ready to pull out and eat on busy mornings.
This Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole is a super easy recipe. It has simple ingredients, and can be cooked ahead of time and placed in the freezer for the weeks ahead. It’s full of protein and will keep you full for a long time!

Can you double this recipe?
This freezer meal is actually meant to be doubled! I used half of a lot of the ingredients, so it doesn’t take much extra work or money to double up and freeze one of them.
This is easy to prep on a Sunday morning or afternoon. In about an hour, you’ll have one breakfast for the week and another to go in the freezer!
The main ingredients are relatively cheap and are things I typically keep in my house:
Frozen shredded hash browns
Pre-cooked breakfast sausage links (I used turkey sausage, but pork sausage is fine)
Bell peppers (I used green, but red bell pepper is fine too)
Shredded cheddar cheese (Another type of cheese would be okay too)
Salt and black pepper
You could also add other random peppers and vegetables. It’s a great way to use up leftovers!
How to make
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, salt and pepper, and garlic powder.
If your sausage links are frozen, heat them for at least 1 minute in the microwave to thaw them enough to slice.
Slice the sausage links into thin coins.
In a 9×13 baking dish coated with cooking spray, layer the ingredients in this order: Hash browns, sausage, onion and bell pepper, and cheese.
Evenly pour the egg mixture over top and bake for 40-45 minutes until the eggs are set.
How to store
Once the casserole has come to room temperature, store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. It’ll keep for up to 5 days.
The next morning, heat up one portion in the microwave in 30-second increments.
How to freeze
The best way to freeze this is to bake it first. That way you can thaw it and reheat in the oven in just a short amount of time.
If freezing the whole casserole
Let the casserole come to room temperature. Wrap the top of the casserole dish in plastic wrap or a layer of aluminum foil and place in the freezer. It’ll stay fresh up to 3 months.
If freezing in individual portions
Let the casserole come to room temperature. Divide into 6 freezer-friendly containers and place in the freezer.
What to serve with this
Here are some toppings you can add on top when you’re ready to eat:
- Hot sauce
- Sour cream
- Extra cheese
You can eat this by itself, or have different side items with it:
- Fresh fruit like a banana, sliced apple, or strawberries
- Cottage cheese
This is such a great breakfast recipe to add to your meal rotation. Next time you need something easy, print this for later!
