Hot Sausage Casserole

This recipe came from my mom. She got it out of a magazine or newspaper years ago. It's always been a family favorite and we use it for breakfast, dinner, or a quick snack since it's just as good cold as it is hot.

1 1/2 lbs. breakfast sausage, cooked and drained (pork, turkey, or any variation you like)
6 slices stale bread
8 eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp. dry mustard, ground superfine
2 cups shredded cheese, whatever medium-hard cheese sounds good. Spice it up with pepper jack.

Preheat oven to 375. Tear bread into small pieces and spread evenly in the bottom of a greased or sprayed 9x13 baking dish. Spread sausage evenly over the top of the bread. Beat eggs, milk, and mustard, pour over top. Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake on center rack until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool 5-10 minutes before cutting. Serve with chopped green onions, salsa, sour cream, or anything else that suits your fancy. Serves about 6.
