- 4 Links Southside Smoked Sausage, diced – Country Style or Original Beef recommended
- 1 bag frozen hash brown shredded potatoes, thawed (24 oz.)
- 1 green bell pepper, diced

- 1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 13″ x 9″ pan with cooking spray.
In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil, then onions and bell peppers. Cook, stirring often, for about 3 minutes. Add sausage and continue to cook and stir for another 3-4 minutes, or until vegetables are soft. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper until well combined.
