Butter, for greasing

1/2 loaf of sliced white loaf bread

1 teaspoon dry mustard 

1 teaspoon salt

  2. In a medium skillet, brown the sausage over medium heat until fully cooked and no longer pink. Remove the sausage with a slotted spoon to drain the fat. Spread the cooked sausage over the bread and top with the cheese. Then stir together the, half-and-half, dry mustard, salt and eggs. Pour this mixture over the cheese. Cover the casserole with aluminum foil and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  3. The next day, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
