December 24: Christmas Morning Casserole

I am sharing our families favorite Christmas morning meal. I hope you enjoy it.  It needs to be prepared Christmas eve.

2 lbs sausage links
3 slices white bread
2 1/4 c milk
1 1/2 tsp dry mustard, opt
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese
10 eggs

On Christmas Eve,  brown sausage, drain;  then cut into bite-size pieces. Cut bread into cubes and place in bottom of 9 x 13 baking pan. Layer sausage on bread. In a large bowl, combine milk, eggs, mustard and salt. Beat for 1 minutes. Stir in cheese. Pour over the bread and sausage layers. Cover with aluminum foil and place in refrigerator overnight. 

On Christmas morning, take casserole out of refrigerator and let stand for 30 minutes. Bake in 350 oven for 30-40 minutes.
