Make it Yourself Monday- Breakfast Casserole

With Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner, my thoughts tend to run toward food. Food, food, glorious food. Can you tell I like food? Lol I also like 
e-a-s-y! So for today's make it yourself project, I am going to share a great breakfast casserole with you, one that I make every Christmas eve day and bake every Christmas morning. While the kids open packages, this is in the oven baking, and by the time they are finished, so is it! Tasty and easy, the perfect combination! 

You will need;
6 slices of stale bread
8 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried mustard
1 squirt spicy brown mustard
1 1/2 pounds cooked and drained sausage
8 ounces grated cheddar cheese
2 ounces shredded jack cheese

Dry your bread out ahead of time, or place in low oven until dried. Spray a 9x13 casserole pan and lay the bread in the bottom of the pan. Then layer in the cheeses and the sausage. 
In a bowl, mix together the eggs, mustard, salt and milk. When mixed well, pour over the sausage and bread. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, cook covered at 325 for an hour, or until slightly brown on the top.

Add a fruit salad, some coffee and juice, and you have the perfect breakfast to get any holiday off to a great start.  An easy way to serve a crowd, without a lot of hard or time consuming work. trust me, try it, you like it!
