  • Grease a 13x9 pan and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium high heat until no pink remains. Remove sausage to a plate. Drain fat from pan, leaving about 1/2 tablespoon.
  • Add diced onions to skillet and saute for about 5 minutes until translucent. Return sausage to skillet and stir into onions for a minute or two. Remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, dijon, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Whisk until well combined. Stir in cheese to egg mixture.
  • Add bread cubes to prepared pan. Evenly spread sausage mixture over bread crumbs. Pour egg mixture over the entire dish.
  • Cover and place in fridge overnight or for a minimum of 8 hours.
  • When ready to make, remove dish from fridge and let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 40-50 minutes, uncovered, until the eggs are set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let sit for 5-10 minutes before cutting.
