6 slices white bread (I prefer crusty French Bread)
2 c. grated sharp cheddar cheese
2 lbs. Jimmy Dean's sausage
2 c. milk
1/2 t. salt
1 T. dry mustard
1/2 bag shredded hash brown potatoes (optional)
Cube bread. Brown sausage and crumble in small pieces. In 9 x 13 pan, place 1/2 bread (enough to scarcely cover the bottom of the pan), then 1/2 sausage, 1/2 shredded hash browns (if using them) and 1/2 cheese, then repeat. Beat eggs, add milk and seasonings. Mix together and then pour over layers. Cover and let stand over night in fridge. Remove cover and bake 1 hour at 375. Serves 10 to 12.
P.S. You can also make it and instead of refridgerating it over night, freeze it until the night before you want to serve it and then take it out of the freezer and let it defrost before baking it. I plan on doing this on days when I know I won't want or won't have time to cook, but a I want a yummy breakfast in the morning.
