In a skillet over a grill or hot coals of a campfire, melt the butter then cook the hash browns, sausages, green pepper and onion until potatoes are lightly browned, about 15-20 minutes. Push the hash brown mixture to the side of the skillet and pour the egg mixture in the center. Cook eggs until set. Season with salt and pepper.
When ready, stir the hash brown mixture into the egg. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and cook for 2 minutes more or until cheese has melted.
