print recipe

1 pound bulk-style pork sausage, I use Jimmy Dean Hot or Smithfield Country Ham
2 cups stale French bread cubes
6 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded
3 medium Granny Smith apples (about 1-1/4 pounds, total), peeled cored, chopped
6 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard

Preheat oven to 350 degrees when ready to bake.

Butter a 13 x 9-inch baking dish and set aside. In a 12-inch skillet, cook sausage until browned; turn out into a fine strainer and press out all fat. Combine sausage, bread cubs, cheese and apples in a bowl; toss to blend and turn out into buttered baking dish, spreading evenly. In a separate bowl whisk together eggs milk, salt and mustard; pour over sausage mixture. Refrigerate until ready to bake.

Bake uncovered in preheated oven until golden brown and set in center 45-60 minutes.
