Layered Breakfast Casserole

"This one was made up as I went along, because I didn't have everything to make the casserole I originally intended. It goes together fairly quickly, and tastes amazing. If you would rather not use the pan drippings, you can use an equivalent amount of just melted butter. It's not as good, though."
