Breakfast Sausage Casserole

I *love* brunch. My family usually hosts brunches for Easter, Mother's & Father's Day, Christmas, or just because. Among the many delicious food items to devour there is usually this scrumptious breakfast sausage casserole.  I can't believe that a recipe as simple as this could produce the flavor that it does.  I think it comes from the sausage, but everything comes together really nicely.  This is a great dish to make the night before and cook the next morning.

This is an asparagus-potato casserole, which is similar and as equally delicious.

Breakfast Sausage Casserole
Serves 6-9

1 1/2 lbs bulk breakfast sausage
9 eggs, lightly beaten
3 C milk
1 1/2 C grated cheese (we use cheddar but anything similar will do)
1 1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp salt
3 bread slices, cubed

Brown sausage and drain. Mix with remaining ingredients in a large bowl.  Cover and refrigerate overnight (if making the night before).  Pour into a lightly greased 9''x13'' pan and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 1 hour, or until eggs are set.
