The six cups of potatoes cover the bottom of the 15x11x2 baking dish perfectly. I recommend using the hot pork sausage in this recipe for the best results. I like to put ketchup on the casserole when I eat the casserole. Salsa and hot sauce would work too.
1/2 pound pork sausage
1/2 pound bacon
1 medium onion, chopped
6 cups diced potatoes
2 1/2 cups shredded cheese
6 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon pepper
In a large skillet, cook bacon, sausage and onion, crumble bacon and breaking up sausage with the spatula. When bacon and sausage is cooked through, drain off excess fat.
In a lightly greased 15x11x2 baking dish, lay diced potatoes on bottom, then half of the shredded cheese, then bacon, sausage and onion mix, top with the remaining shredded cheese.
In a bowl, combine eggs, milk and pepper; pour egg mixture over rest of the stuff in the dish.
Bake, covered, in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Take out of oven and let stand 10 to 15 minutes.
