1 pound ground pork sausage*
10 white sandwich bread slices, cubed (6 cups)
1 (8-ounce) package sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
6 large eggs
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


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

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

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

Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.

Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until set.

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

NOTE: Casserole may be baked after chilling 1 hour. Omit standing time, and bake as directed.
