Since my husband and I got married, we’ve been finding ways to create new family traditions that we can look forward to during the holidays. One of our favorite new traditions is Christmas Day brunch since we prefer to skip breakfast to open presents. While we wait for the kids to wake up, I quickly prepare this amazing egg, sausage, and hashbrown casserole. It bakes while the kiddos open presents, after which we eat together, and then we can enjoy the rest of the day with family.
To make preparation easier, we use Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage so that it saves us the step of having to fry sausage so early in the morning. And since we’re trying to let the kids sleep as long as we can Christmas morning, we know that the smell of delicious sausage frying would wake them up. Tyson® products are perfect for all cooking occasions and all holiday season long, and Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage, a Tyson® product, is delicious, savory sausage that’s ready in seconds and features a unique blend of Jimmy Dean signature seasonings that enhance the flavor of any recipe.
This holiday season, Tyson® products are inspiring families like mine to try something new for the season, helping transform the functional dishes we can make or how we can spend time together as a family. Just like our family did with the Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage patties, we were able to save some prep time and instead, enjoy some time together as a family. Tyson® products are the key ingredient to recipes and recipe hacks like this brunch casserole that can be enjoyed any time of day during the busy holiday season.
