Christmas Morning Breakfast

Our Christmas morning breakfast is one of everyone's favorite meals of the year -- we occasionally have it throughout the year, sometimes.  Every Christmas morning we have a sausage, egg & cheese casserole and a coffee cake -- every year for 25 years now! (maybe even before I was born)

"Breakfast Before Casserole"

Make a day before: (it's usually best to make the night before)
1 pound spicy sausage
6 eggs
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard or a little less
2 slices white bread, cubed
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

- Saute' sausage and drain 
- beat eggs with milk
- add salt and mustard
- layer bread cubes, sausage & cheese in 9x13 baking dish 
- pour egg mixture on top
- refrigerate overnight
- bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes

I was a little late coming over from opening presents so some people had already dug into it by the time I got my piece!
