Melt 1 stick of butter or margarine in bottom of 9x13 pan. Place 8 (or enough to cover bottom of pan) frozen hash brown patties in pan.
Mix 2 cups of cooked sausage or cubed ham, 2-4 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, 12 eggs, green peppers and onions.
Pour egg mixture over hash browns. Refrigerate over night.
Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.
**I only use 1/2 stick of butter and it tastes just great!
