Tear bread into small pieces and sprinkle in bottom of a lightly buttered 2-quart casserole. Arrange sausage patties over the bread; sprinkle with green onion, tomato, then the cheese. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and remaining seasonings. Pour slowly over cheese layer. Refrigerate overnight or bake immediately.
