Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. Set aside.
Cook sausages in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until sausage until it crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain well.
Add hash browns in an even layer in prepared baking dish.
Top with cooked sausage.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese over sausage.
In a separate medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.
Pour over cheese.
Bake 30-45 minutes.
Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese, and return to oven for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
To make overnight, prepare through step 7. Cover, and chill overnight. In the morning, set casserole out while you preheat the oven. Uncover, and bake as directed. You may find that you need to add an extra 5-10 minutes of baking time depending on how cold the casserole is.
