Doug and his brother nicknamed his dad's sister, Linda, Aunt Skinny, and her husband, David, Uncle Fat, when they were boys. Aidan finds this very amusing, as you can imagine. This is a recipe that Linda gave me early in my marriage to Doug as it is his favorite holiday breakfast dish.
1 lb ground mild sausage, browned and drained
3 slices of white bread, cubed
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 large eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon dry ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
Combine sausage, bread and cheese in a casserole dish. In a bowl, beat together remaining ingredients. Pour egg mix over the top of the sausage mix. Cover with glass lid or tin foil and store in fridge overnight.
When ready to make, preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake covered casserole for 45 minutes. Then lower temp to 325, remove cover and bake for 15 minutes. Serve hot.
