Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Add a teaspoon of oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook until slightly softened; 1-2 minutes. Add sausage and cook until no longer pink, breaking up the sausage into small pieces as it cooks. Use a slotted spoon to transfer sausage and onions to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
Spray an 11x7-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange frozen hash browns in the bottom of the dish, then sprinkle on the sausage and shredded cheese.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture evenly on top of the casserole.
Bake in preheated oven, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes or until eggs are set. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with parsley and top with salsa and sour cream, if desired.
