Crust Preparation: 

Preheat oven to 425°F

Wash the potatoes and pat dry.  Grate with a cheese grater, then use a paper towel to squeeze out the excess moisture.  Sprinkle on 1 heaping teaspoon of seasoning salt.  Toss to coat. 

Spray 9" pie pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Add the grated potatoes and spread them out evenly in the pan, sides included.

Bake for 20 minutes or until light gold in color.

While the crust is baking, it's time to make the sausage gravy. -->

I made this today. It was fairly good for a first time try. I would change a few things to make this a bit more appetizing for my eyes. Grated the potatoes into cool water to prevent browning prior to baking, extend baking time of potatoes to at least 20-25 minutes for a crispier crust. Mine lacked some flavor either due to seasoning or poor grade of sausage. Next time I will experiment with a different type of sausage as well as trying pepper jack cheese. For those of you who like your yolks runny or at least a bit I would add separately at the end. This held together well and can be cut in wedges, if you do not like the pie plate idea this would also work well in oblong roasting pan so you could cut into squares. I also though this may be fun to make in cupcake tins as well.

Thanks this was fun.

Thanks for giving this recipe a try. I tweak every recipe to my preferences and I think red pepper flakes would help jazz it up a bit. I really like your idea to bake it in a casserole dish!

Thank you for commenting!

This looks delicious. I think if I made it I would scramble the eggs before I added them, because I don't really like my eggs sunny-side-up, which is too bad because I really like the look they add to the pie when done that way. I bet this would also be good with some peppers and mushrooms added. Now I'm hungry.

Just the thought of topping this pie with sauteed veggies is inducing my salivation.

You're a culinary genius!!!
Haha, It doesn't look like there's much you could to improve on this recipe, but I do love sauteed veggies.

I really think you were spot on, Rambler.

Fresh sauteed veggies would be so amazing served with this pie. I wish I'd thought of it!

Looks great. Does the potato crust stay crispy after filling it?
bajablue (author)  canucksgirl2 years ago
Not noticeably... but I think the hash brown crust really helps the slices hold their shape well.

Thanks for your comment, cg!
I might try this sometime. It looks great!
