  1. Preheat oven to 325 F. In large skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink. In large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, mustard and salt; stir well.
  2. Distribute half the bread evenly in a buttered 9 x 13 x 2 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with half the pepper, half the cheese, half the sausage and half of each optional ingredient. Repeat layering using remaining bread, pepper, cheese, sausage and optional ingredients. Pour egg mixture evenly over casserole.
  3. Bake uncovered for 55-60 minutes, or until eggs are set. Tent with foil if top begins to brown too quickly.

this was not a hit at my house. It's Chritmas morning, and I think I should have made eggs and sausage seperately. Too much bread, had to cook an extra half an hour and it's still soggy inside.....

We made it exactly as it was written and it was amazing! The whole casserole was gone in one sitting! Everyone was asking for the recipe.
