scrumptious breakfast casserole

It may not look super fancy from the amazing-quality photo below (sarcasm much?), but I promise, this dish is super delicious and great for serving to a crowd. I'm planning on making a half batch for my family for Christmas morning!
Scrumptious Breakfast Casserole

6 slices white bread
1 pound sage sausage
2 cups half-and-half
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp salt
dash of pepper
dash of hot sauce
7 beaten eggs
3–4 medium cooked & unpeeled red potatoes
1 medium bag of mixed, shredded cheese

  • Fry sausage until it is almost completed browned and drain on paper towels. (Your kitchen will smell like a glorious campfire meal!) Beat the half-and-half, mustard, salt, pepper, hot sauce, and eggs together.
  • Cube bread and potatoes and combine. Add sausage and 2 cups cheese. Fold it all together.
  • Spread the bread-potato-sausage-cheese mixture into a lightly greased 9 x 13 casserole pan.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the entire dish.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight (this is optional and great for making the night before, but if you cook it straightaway, allow for a shorter baking time).
  • Bake at 350 degrees for around 1 hour or until it doesn't jiggle in the middle.
  • Cover with remaining cheese and pop it back in the oven long enough for it to melt.

Note: the potato chunks can get very hot so warn guests to let it properly cool before eating.
