1 9x13-inch casserole


  • nonstick cooking spray

  • 8 slices Texas toast, crusts removed, cubed

  • 2 pounds bulk pork sausage

  • 6 large eggs, beaten

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 cups shredded mild Cheddar cheese


  1. Spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray. Place cubed bread into the bottom of the prepared pan.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Place on top of bread.

  3. Mix eggs, milk, dry mustard, salt, and pepper together in a bowl and pour over sausage. Top with Cheddar cheese.

  4. Refrigerate for 8 hours, or overnight.

  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 45 minutes. Place foil over top the last 15 minutes to prevent the cheese from hardening.
