1 garlic clove
green peppers
1 onion
2# hashbrowns or breakfast potatoes
1 package (8 oz) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Dutch Oven liner
1.  Chop the onion and peppers.Mince the garlic.
2.  Cook the sausage, garlic, and onion together, 
    until the sausage is brown. This can be done, 
    before leaving home to save time. 
3.  Stir in the peppers. Continue to cook until they are soft (about 15 minutes). 
4.  Heat approximately 25 charcoal briquettes.
5.  Place Dutch Oven liner in the Dutch Oven.  
    This will save on the clean up time!
6.  Put the hashbrowns in the bottom of the Dutch Oven.
7.  Stir in the sausage mixture into the hashbrowns. 
    if you want crisp hashbrowns, brown them in the Dutch Oven 
    before you mix in the other ingredients.
8.  Beat the eggs.                                                                      
9.  Pour he eggs evenly over the sausage & hashbrown mixture.
    Allow them to sink into the mixture without stirring.      
10. Cover the Dutch Oven.  Place about 8 coals on
    the bottom & 17 coals on top.
11. During cooking,rotate the lid and the oven occasionally 
    to allow for even cooking and heat.    
12.  Allow the casserole to bake until the eggs are firm, 
    about 45 minutes.
13. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese, cover and continue 
    to bake until the cheese melts.
14. Salt & pepper to taste.
**  The original recipe called for a dozen eggs,
    but we thought that there were too many hash browns
    and not enough  eggs,so we added 6 eggs.
    Serves: Approximately 6 people
