We're in the midst of packing and I'm newly pregnant. Two strikes against making any elaborate dinners this week. With the outside temperature below 20 when the sun's shining, I wanted a hot dinner to warm up my cold hubby after his looooong [5 minute] commute home. Hey, when your body's thermostat is still set for Fall temperatures, those 5 minutes in brutal cold feel a lot longer.
Aldi to the rescue! This dish serves 2-4 depending on how hungry you are.
4 Hashbrown Patties
5 Original Breakfast Sausage Patties
2 scallions, chopped
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Turn oven on to 425 and pop those patties (both kinds) on a cookie sheet and cook for a bit (8 min or so) while gathering the rest of the ingredients. No need to preheat the oven for this.
Butter a medium casserole dish (I used the larger Corning Ware oval dish)
Remove patties from oven and decrease temp to 350.
Layer everything in the casserole dish as follows:
Sausage patties (I halved the 5th and put it in the center, to fill in the gap)
1/2 the cheese
Eggs (just break them right into the dish for sunny-side up goodness)
Bake until Eggs are cooked to your liking (15-20 minutes or so)
This dish is NOT low-fat or low-cal or preservative-free, but it will warm the cockles of your hubby's heart.
