Big Guy and I have never really been brunch people. On the weekends we typically eat a light breakfast, light lunch and then have a killer dinner. Until lately.
Over the past several months, I’ve truly started to love Sundays. Gone are the days of complaining about Monday being just around the corner. And gone are the days of not having brunch at home.
I’ve really enjoyed our slow mornings that start without an alarm clock. After waking up, I make coffee, enjoy a cup with a small breakfast and then we go on a walk. After we’ve worked up an appetite, it’s time for brunch. And have I got a deliciously comforting yet incredibly easy brunch dish for you.
Sausage Potato Pie is full of potatoes (I used pre-shredded hashbrowns, oh yes I did), sausage, eggs and cheese. A little milk helps bring it all together along with some spinach for nutrients and any seasoning you desire (I used a Savannah Summer Salt). Simply brown the sausage and then whisk together the eggs, milk and seasonings. Then fold in the potatoes, some of the cheese (we used a smoked gouda), spinach and cooked sausage. Pour into the prepared pie dish, top with more cheese and bake.
Add a mimosa on the side and you’ll really be living.
