Vicksburg graduate Dale Ann (Lapham) Erdman fixed this casserole last month for a group of friends. It is delicious and a nice addition to a brunch menu for the holidays.

2 oz sausage
8 frozen hash brown patties
12 large eggs
3 c shredded cheese (cheddar or cheddar mix)

¼ c chopped green onion
¼ c fresh diced tomato (if desired)
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 x 13 pan.
