We aren’t breakfast people.  We try, because it’s good for you, but we really prefer waiting until mid-morning to eat anything.  So we don’t do a traditional Easter breakfast.  We’d rather sleep in late and eat food even later.  Sometimes we pretend we planned  Easter Brunch, but really that’s just when we end up eating.

Whoever among you wakes up early on Easter is strange.  We still love you.  We just don’t understand you.

And we don’t really understand people who make extensive Easter brunches.  Dozens of pans and plates and hours of work, then all the work of cleaning up afterwards…not for us.  Nope.  We don’t even like the idea of using one pot.

We like our Easters to be casual.  Wake up when you feel like it, eat some delicious food, maybe get some candy.  The fact that we’ve even thought about what easy meal we’re making is a bit odd.

So for this Easter brunch, we aren’t going to.  Not a single pot.

We used four ingredients to make this, and all the supplies can be found at Walmart (which means it’s universal).  You’ll need Ore-Ida Hash Brown Potatoes, pre-cooked sausage, cheddar cheese, and eggs.  Maybe some salt in pepper if you want to go crazy.

If you have a ton of people at your house for Easter, make sure to get the big bag.  And lots of eggs.

Grab your mason jars and begin layering ingredients into them.  You’ll want to start with #OreIdaHashbrowns, then sausage, then crack in an egg, then top with cheese.  Repeat so you have two layers.  If you would prefer to scramble your eggs, go ahead and do that!  Bake for 45 minutes at 350.  If you want to be sure your mason jars don’t crack, you can put them in a water bath. (Fill a cake pan half full with water, and set the jars in the pan before putting it all in the oven).

Honest moment:  This meal is not actually as beautiful when it is finished as we had hoped.  Nope.  But…don’t let that fool you.  It is delicious.

Added Bonus:  If you make extra, you can cook them and freeze them.  Then just warm them up when you want them.

Like this post?  Why not take a look at our other mason jar recipes.  Our banana bread or candy corn are pretty great.  She Knows and Put It In A Jar also have some great recipe ideas.

So, what are your Easter brunch plans?

    Those look SO good! It’s great to know you can make them ahead of time and freeze them. I don’t like to be stressed out on holidays either so being able to make something ahead of time is key. Such a great idea! I love the versatility of the Ore-Ida Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes. #client

    Well, I guess I’m one of “those” people who love breakfast and I love to cook :-( It doesn’t matter to me that I have to clean up it’s the creative process going on. For Easter we won’t be having company so it will be a simple breakfast and off to Carmel, IN to be with our kids and grandkids. Whoo Hoo!! Of course we’ll be bringing the entrée — cooked here at home. Now see, making a mess is relative — some people when they do crafty things will get a zillion things out to make one itsy project — I’m not that into stuff like that. Now as far as time goes for the eggs –Simple. You cook them until they’re done :-)

      Haha! You are so right that it is about perspective; we DO make a huge mess when crafting. Interesting how we don’t see that as too much work… And it sounds like your Easter is going to be a good one!

    And then…..?
    Bake, I assume. But for how long?
    Details, please!
