Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.

In a large skillet, cook the breakfast sausage over medium heat until browned and cooked through. Remove the sausage from the skillet and set aside.

In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and bell peppers. Cook until softened, about 5-7 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder.

Layer the hash browns evenly in the bottom of the greased baking dish. Top with the cooked sausage and sautéed vegetables. Sprinkle the shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheeses evenly over the sausage and vegetable mixture.

Pour the egg mixture over the top, ensuring it is evenly distributed.

Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the casserole is set and the top is golden brown. Let the casserole cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Side Dish: Crispy Oven-Baked Hash Browns   

No brunch is complete without a side of crispy hash browns. This oven-baked version is easy to prepare and offers a healthier alternative to the traditional fried method, without compromising on flavor or crunch. Let’s dive in!


◻ 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and shredded

◻ 1 small onion, finely chopped

◻ 2 tbsp olive oil

◻ Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the shredded potatoes, chopped onion, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix well to ensure everything is evenly coated.

Spread the potato mixture evenly on the prepared baking sheet, pressing it down slightly.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the hash browns are golden brown and crispy on the edges.

Serve hot as a deliciously crunchy side to your brunch.

Dessert: Blueberry Lemon Pancakes   

End the brunch on a sweet note with these fluffy blueberry lemon pancakes. The tangy lemon zest pairs perfectly with the juicy blueberries, making these pancakes a delightful treat.


◻ 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

◻ 2 tbsp sugar

◻ 1 tbsp baking powder

◻ 1/2 tsp salt

◻ 1 cup milk

◻ 1 large egg

◻ 1 tsp vanilla extract

◻ 2 tbsp lemon juice

◻ 1 tbsp lemon zest

◻ 1 cup fresh blueberries

◻ Butter or oil for cooking


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and lemon zest until well combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the batter should be slightly lumpy.

Gently fold in the fresh blueberries. On the other hand, heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and lightly grease with butter or oil.

Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges look set, then flip and cook until the other side is golden brown.

Serve warm with maple syrup and additional fresh blueberries if desired.

Drink: Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice   

A glass of freshly squeezed orange juice adds a refreshing touch to the brunch, providing a burst of citrus flavor that complements the dishes perfectly.


◻ 8-10 oranges


Roll the oranges on the countertop to loosen the juice inside. Cut the oranges in half and use a citrus juicer to extract the juice.

Pour the juice through a fine mesh strainer to remove any pulp or seeds. Serve chilled in glasses for a refreshing and healthy drink.
