Breakfast Casserole

So you're having a crowd in for the weekend and wondering what to feed them for breakfast.  You don't have to spend hours in the kitchen while everyone else is sleeping in!  Why feed them something from a box in the freezer........

... when you can feed them sausage, eggs and cheese fresh from the oven with very little effort?!
Now with this super easy and delicious egg casserole, they'll think you're June Cleaver!
This feeds a huge crowd and all the work is done the night before, so breakfast is easy and relaxing.  OK, enough with the commercial.  I got this recipe from my sister-in-law Nancy.  And that girl knows how to feed a crowd.

"Breakfast Before"
1 lb. pork sausage (or bacon)
6 eggs
2 c. milk
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
3 1/2 slices white bread, cubed
1 c. grated cheddar cheese

Cook and drain meat.  Put bread on bottom of 13x9 pan.  Spread cheese and meat over the bread.  In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, milk, salt and mustard.  Pour this mix over the meat mixture in the pan.  Refrigerate overnight.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

I've found that I prefer to make 1 1/2 times the recipe per pan.  Also I've found that you can freeze it before baking and thaw it out the day before you want to cook it.
