easy sausage hash brown casserole

You can do with with any meat you like. Sausage hash brown casserole is a great dish for breakfast, but also works great for a snack or dinner as well.
If you prep ahead, and have the hash browns thawed, the dish will cook quicker. And have the sausage from a previous meal, makes this sausage casserole recipe super fast to make.
