This casserole has all of my favorite breakfast foods. Frozen hash browns, sausage, eggs and cheese. I browed the hash browns prior to putting them in the casserole. I think it helped get the potatoes fully cooked and crispy. Feel free to skip that step if you wish. Also, I used hot breakfast sausage (Tennessee Pride) in this casserole. I think it adds more flavor, but feel free to use all regular breakfast sausage or half regular and half hot.
