Martha's Breakfast Casserole for the Holidays

Martha's Breakfast Casserole

12 slices white bread (for a clean cut appearance, you can trim the crusts)
1/4 cup butter softened
1 lb. roll sausage, browned and drained
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I occasionally use 3 cups)
4 eggs
3 cups of milk

Spread softened butter on bread. Lay 6 slices butter side up in a greased casserole dish, I use a 9x13. Sprinkle half the sausage and half the cheese. Repeat layers. Whisk eggs and milk together, and pour over layers, making sure every thing is saturated. Cover and chill overnight. Bake the next morning at 350 degrees for 45 - 50 minutes.

You posted this recipe years ago in the MyCoupons forum. I wrote it down and have been using it ever since. It has become an important family tradition. My son, who hasn't lived at home for three years is still here bright and early on Christmas morning so he can have this casserole for breakfast because he loves it so much. Thank you for sharing it and helping me make such a treasured tradition for my own family.
