I first had this dish while staying the weekend with my family up in Muskegon.  It was such a great weekend visiting with family and lots of great food.  On Sunday morning we woke up and my stepmom made a big breakfast and the main dish was this sausage hash brown casserole.  It was so good!

While I was gobbling it down I asked her what was all in it so that I could make it once we got home.  She said the first few ingredients which were a given: hash browns, sausage, cheese….but then she said ‘french onion dip’.  What?  You mean like chip dip? Yes!  Even though it’s not something that I would have thought of I now can’t imagine a savory breakfast casserole that isn’t a combination of creamy sour cream and french onion dip.  Now on to the breakfast casserole recipe!

Start by defrosting the hash browns according to the package directions.  If you try to cook them frozen your casserole will take about…5 hours to cook.  Now if you are having a really lazy Sunday then fine but you would probably have all your coffee drank by then and what fun is that?

While the hash browns are thawing in a pan on the stovetop cook the breakfast sausage and onions until cooked all the way through.  Should take around 8-10 minutes.  Remove the sausage from the pan and place on a plate with a few paper towels.  Depending on how fatty your sausage is there may be grease that needs to drain off.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 dish.  Next in a bowl whisk the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and Spanish paprika. In a large bowl add the container of sour cream and french onion dip. Stir to combine.  Now add the thawed hash browns to the bowl followed by the egg mixture.  Finally, add all but 1/2 a cup of the cheese to the bowl.

Stir it all together so the everything is all combined well.  Add it all into the prepared pan and spread it all evenly.  Sprinkle with the remaining cheese on the top.  Cover the pan with tin foil then cook for 50 minutes.  Cut into 12 pieces and serve with a big bowl of fruit, biscuits and jelly.  And here you are……

Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich #SundaySupper

Are you a breakfast eater?  I am not really.  I prefer to get up and have my coffee then maybe eat an early lunch.  However on the weekends it’s a different story.  Weekends are for big breakfasts with the family on Sunday.   Eggs, bacon, pancakes, french toast or omelettes.  This Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich is the perfect balance of eggs and ham, chewy ciabatta bread and one of my favorite condiments, pesto.

The pesto is really what made this sandwich great.  I’ve been growing basil out in my back yard for a few years now so it’s pretty much a staple in our house.  Don’t have fresh basil?  I find that the store version is good too so don’t get overwhelmed with an extra step if you don’t want to.  The other good thing is that this sandwich can be made all in one pan.

This recipe is based off a sandwich I had when my husband and I took a little trip to Toledo & Cleveland last year.  While there we stayed at a beautiful hotel, the Hyatt Regency Cleveland at the Arcade.  It was a great hotel right across from all kinds of restaurants, shops and a really cool brewery.  It was a great trip! We visited the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and my favorite, The Christmas Story House!  I also got to eat a great breakfast sandwich in the hotel restaurant, this Ham & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich.  Now on to the food!

This sandwich is a one pan wonder.  Heat up 1 tsp of oil then add the onion.  Let soften for 2-3 minutes stirring so they don’t burn.  In a bowl combine the eggs and milk and whip to combine.  Now add spinach to the pan.  Cook for about a minute to let it soften.  Add the eggs on top.  Using a spatula thin out the eggs and cook by pushing the bottom up and letting the egg run under.  Cook for about 2 minutes then flip.  Now add ham to the other side of the pan.  Heat through for 2 minutes while the other side of the egg cooks.  Put ham on top of the eggs.  Take the 2 pieces of bread and spread butter on them then place face down in the open section of the pan.  Let brown for about 1 minute.

Now time to plate it.  Place 1 piece of bread browned side down.  Put stacked eggs and ham on top of it.  Add a generous amount of prepared or freshly make pesto to the other slice of bread and put on top.  And here you are….
