Hi all.  I've found some wonderful recipes here and wanted to say Thanks!  But
now I need some help.  I'm in charge of Christmas morning breakfast at my
sister's house this year.  I want to do all prep work the day before.  I found
one recipe that I want to do, but need something else to go with it.  I'd like
to find a cheesy hash brown casserole type recipe to go along with the
following sausage & egg casserole:

1 lb ground pork sausage
6 slices white bread, toasted and cut into cubes
 lb shredded mild Cheddar cheese
1 tsp mustard powder
 tsp salt
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk

1.  Crumble sausage into a medium skillet. Cook over medium heat until evenly
brown; drain.

2.  In a medium bowl, mix together cooked sausage, toasted bread, Cheddar
cheese, mustard powder, salt, eggs and milk. Pour into a greased 9x13 inch
baking dish. Cover, and chill in the refrigerator 8 hours, or overnight.

3.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

4.  Cover, and bake 45 to 60 minutes. Uncover, and reduce temperature to 325
degrees F (165 degrees C). Bake for an additional 30 minutes, or until set.

*I do plan on making some changes (I've always had a hard time following a
recipe to a T, I always have to add something :-)  I want to use a spicy
sausage, and sour dough bread instead of plain white.  I'll probably up the
amount of eggs and reduce the amount of milk.  Will definitely add onion and
either some spinach or tomato.  Maybe even add some ricotta cheese, who knows?*

Does anyone have any suggests for a hash brown casserole to go along with this?
 I'd like to use frozen hash browns to save on time, and would like to assemble
it the day before.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

This is definitely not good for your arteries, but for an occasional treat,
it's great!

This is NOT the answer to your question, but I can't help offering the 
remark -- How about fresh fruit instead of more cheese and fat?  A 
pretty fruit selection would be a wonderful complement to the breakfast 
casserole -- and could easily be made a day, maybe two, ahead.

I want to thank all of you for the wonderful suggestions and recipes.  I ended
up using Damsel's since it was the only one I already had everything for in
stock.  It was a big hit, and disappeared so fast!  My sister-in-law kept
saying  "you have to make this again" each time she went back for more.  We all
had grapefruit halves while waiting for the casseroles to come out of the over
(a tradition in my brother-in-law's family), fresh melon afterwards and finally
champange and orange juice while opening presents.  Yum!  

I hope all of you are having a wonderful holiday!
