Woodhaven Brunch Bake

        18 eggs
        3 T. water
        4 tablespoon unsalted butter, separated
        1 cup onions, chopped medium
        1 lb. pork sausage, rendered and drained
        1 lb. potatoes, shredded
        8 ounces sliced button mushrooms
        3 scallions, slice thin
        1 cup red bell pepper, chopped medium
        8 ounces shredded cheddar
        Salt and pepper to taste 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Crack the eggs into a  large bowl, add the water and whisk until well combined.
In a medium skillet, melt 3 T. butter and cook the chopped onions, adding salt and pepper as needed.
Cook over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes and add the potatoes. Cook until they potatoes are beginning to brown 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  With the remaining butter, sauté the mushrooms until they are caramelized, about 7-8 minutes.
Oil a large casserole dish. Add the scallions and the red pepper to the egg mixture and combine. Stir in the cheese and add some pepper.
In the prepared casserole dish, place the potato mixture in the bottom, followed by the sausage and pour the egg mixture over the top.
Baker for about 37-40 minutes or until the middle is firm. Broil the top for about 2-3 minutes to a golden brown.
