Cheese Sausage Strata

Sausage provides plenty of flavor in this hearty morning casserole. It's a great addition to a brunch buffet, because it's assembled the night before to cut down on last-minute fuss.

Yield

12 servings

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds bulk pork sausage
9 eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups milk
9 slices bread, cubed
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 teaspoons ground mustard

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C).

In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the eggs, milk, bread, cheese, bacon and mustard. Transfer to a greased shallow 3-quart baking dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Cover and bake for 60 to 65 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
