2 lbs ground breakfast sausage
2 lbs frozen diced hash browns
1 dozen eggs
1 1/2 cups milk (2 cups if cooking in crockpot)
1t dry mustard
salt & pepper
small chopped onion (optional)
4 cups grated cheddar cheese
Brown the sausage in a frying pan. Spray the 11X13 baking dish (or crockpot insert) with non-stick spray. Spread the frozen diced hash browns evenly in the bottom. Drain the grease off the cooked sausage. Spread Sausage over the frozen hash browns. In a medium size bowl, scramble the eggs, add milk (1 1/2 cups for baking dish, or 2 cups if using crockpot), spices & onion (optional), mix well. Pour over hash browns & sausage.
If cooking in baking dish, cover with foil, cook in oven at 400 for 50 minutes. Remove foil & add grated cheddar cheese over the top. Cook for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted & golden brown. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.
If cooking in crockpot, add cheese, cook on low for 8 to 10 hrs.
