I just love the month of December, don’t you? I genuinely look forward to the holiday season, complete with carols, twinkly lights, and the smell of a fresh cut Christmas tree. My husband and I both have three sisters each, which means we are blessed to be surrounded by lots of loved ones during our holiday celebrations.

Big family gatherings are always accompanied by big family meals. When planning a meal that needs to serve lots of people, a potluck is a great way to go! When everyone brings a dish to share, it takes the stress off of whoever is hosting and makes the event a collaborative affair. Making a dish to share with the ones you love is a fun way to get in the holiday spirit of giving, and when you have a potluck, no one is left out of the fun!

One of my favorite holiday meals to share with family is brunch. If you are hosting or attending a potluck brunch event this holiday season, offer to prepare a side and make this festive and delicious casserole. Made with hash brown potatoes, turkey sausage, fresh veggies, and lots of cheese, it is truly holiday-worthy! It will round out a brunch spread perfectly and fit right in with other favorites like quiche, cinnamon rolls, and crisp strips of bacon.

If you’re serving this casserole for Christmas, it’s fun to top it with some extra veggies in the shape of a Christmas tree! You can easily omit them for other holiday events and the casserole will be just as delicious. Either way, this loaded hash brown casserole with fill your belly and warm your heart as you enjoy it with your loved ones this December!
