While I was getting my ingredients ready, I thought I’d take a shot of the sausage I was using.

You can also make this using diced ham or crumbled bacon to give you one breakfast casserole with three variations. Versatility and easy to prepare, you’ve got to love it.
Place the sausage, green and red peppers and chopped onions in a skillet, cook until sausage is browned and peppers and onions are sauteed nicely.
Grease a 13×9 inch baking pan with shortening, spread the bread cubes evenly in the pan. Spoon the sausage mixture over the bread cubes. Sprinkle the casserole with grated cheese. In a large bowl whisk the eggs, milk, dry mustard and salt and pepper together. Pour over the casserole, cover with foil and place in the refrigerator to bake in the morning. In the morning, preheat your oven to 350 degrees, remove the foil and bake for about 50 minutes or until casserole is puffed and center is set. Breakfast can be easy and delicious when you make a Sausage Breakfast Casserole, Enjoy!
