  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

How to Make It

  1. Cook sausage in a skillet over medium heat, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well.

  2. Place bread cubes in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish; sprinkle evenly with cheese, and top with sausage.

  3. Whisk together eggs and next 4 ingredients; pour evenly over sausage. Cover and chill 8 hours.

  4. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.

  5. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until set.

  6. *2 cups cubed cooked ham may be substituted for sausage.
