We had this for breakfast every Christmas and Easter every year for as long as I can remember. I've started the tradition at our house! I make it the evening before and then it's ready to pop into the oven before church on Easter Sunday (or before stockings on Christmas morning...).
1 lb sausage
6 slices white bread, crusts removedmargarine, softened
1 1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese
2 C half and half
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard
Cook sausage and drain. Butter both sides of each slice of bread, then cut into cubes. Place bread in bottom of a 9X13 baking dish. Sprinkle with sausage, then top with cheese. Combine all other ingredients and beat well. Pour evenly into pan. Chill for at least 8 hours. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes.
