One of our Christmas morning traditions is to open presents while our breakfast casserole cooks. It is made the night before and sets overnight. Then, as the presents as opened a wonderful aroma a casserole waftst through. This is an easy, savory bread pudding type casserole. I just made it for a baby shower brunch and it didn't take much hands-on time.

Breakfast Casserole
6 slices of bread (wheat or white), cubed
1 lb sausage, cooked and drained
4 eggs
2 cups milk
1 t mustard
salt, pepper
1-2 cups cheese (I use 1)

Put bread on bottom of 13 X 9 casserole pan. Top with cooked sausage. Combine and whisk eggs, milk, mustard, salt, and pepper. Put cheese on top of sausage. Pour egg mixture over all. Cover and let sit in refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight. Remove from refrigerator and uncover. Cook for 30-40 minutes or until slightly browned and bubbly.
