REDNECK BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

I woke up one morning and wanted something different for breakfast. This was the result. It's eggy, cheesy, meaty, crunchy and delicious! I created the recipe for an 8x8 casserole, but you may double it and use a 9x13 dish (be sure to increase baking time to 50 minutes.) You may assemble it the night before, if desired, just reserve the potato sticks topping until ready to bake.
