Easter Breakfast Casserole

I think it might be a Southern rule that every household has a breakfast casserole recipe. This one is mine (technically, it's from my husband's aunt). It's ridiculously easy and open to interpretation- you like onions? put em in, how about peppers-that too...The world is your breakfast casserole.

Breakfast Casserole

6 eggs

2 cups milk

1 tsp dry mustard

2-6 slices of bread, broken (you can use any bread, I used a baguette on Sunday)

*You can substitute hash browns or tater tots for the bread

1 tsp salt

1 lb sausage, cooked and chopped (any kind)

1 cup grated mixed cheese

Combine all ingredients, pour into a greased 9x12 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. That's it. It's so easy it's ridiculous. And, so good. I usually make this for holidays and will mix the ingredients (let the sausage cool before adding to the eggs) and let it sit in the refrigerator while we go to Mass. This is a no-fail, one dish, awesome addition to your brunch table. You can thank me later!
