Overnight Souffle from Maggie H.

"Here's one (that probably everyone has!) that I use when we have a crowd coming for a weekend brunch."--Maggie H.

Overnight Souffle

4 cups day old bread, cubed
2 cups shredded cheddar (a combo including some pepper jack is tasty)
3 Tablespoons chopped onion
10 eggs, beaten
4 cups milk
1 teaspoon dry mustard (or 1 Tablespoon prepared mustard)
1/2 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste

The night before serving, butter a 9" X 13" casserole dish. Put bread cubes in casserole; sprinkle cheese and onions on top. Mix other ingredients and pour over bread. (You can sprinkle 1 pound of sausage, cooked and drained, over the eggs if you wish.)

Cover and chill for 12-24 hours.

Bake at 325 degrees for one hour. Tent with foil if the top browns too quickly. To test for doneness, insert the tip of a knife in the center, if nothing sticks to it, the souffle is done.
