Spicy Garden Breakfast Casserole

Most weekends I am up way before my daughter and Husband. I like to "beat the heat" and do my running early in the cool morning hours. If I plan ahead I like to put together an overnight Casserole I can throw in the oven, for my family to enjoy when they wake up. I was looking for a recipe that I could "alter" by adding the fresh veggies in my garden. I found a great recipe on labelle cuisine.
Do yourself a favor and go check out her site. Let her know Lark sent you! 
*Note for all you NON-MEAT-EATERS,I made 1/2 with Meat and 1/2 without. In it's "place" I added fresh mushrooms....WOW!
 This recipe will make a 9x9 pan, you can double it for a 9x13

6 Egglands Best Organic Eggs: beaten
3/4 c. Milk
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. Chili Powder
1/8 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 C. Diced White Onion
1/4 C. Diced Green Peppers
1/2 C. Diced fresh Tomato
1 TBSP Chopped Chives
16 oz. Frozen Hash Browns
2 C. Shredded Sharp Cheese
*1/2 lb. Cooked Spicy Italian Sausage (optional)

Mix all ingredients together and spread evenly into a 9x9 sprayed pan. Cover and chill overnight.
Next morning Preheat oven to 350, bake for 35-45 Minutes. Or until "set" and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  You can serve a side of salsa and sour cream if you desired.

Well, good morning to me...this looks delicious! Even though we do eat meat, I think I'd like the mushroom version even more.
