One of our co-workers at Best Choice, Jimmy, brought in this tasty dish and shared the recipe with us. What a great way to start the day!
Total time: 30 minutes to prep, 8 hours to cook. Serves 12.
2 lbs ground sausage

Cook sausage according to package and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine green onions, red peppers, chilies and cilantro. Toss together and set aside.
Line your slow-cooker with a protective liner or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Layer 1/3 of the hashbrowns, then sausage, followed by veggie mixture and cheese into the slow-cooker. Repeat this layering two more times.
