Sausage Souffle

This is a traditional Christmas breakfast dish for my family.
My Mom has been making this dish for Christmas breakfast for as long as I can remember. There have been a few times we didn't have this for breakfast and breakfast seemed different without it. 

I haven't tried very many different sausage souffles, but as far as I am concerned this one is by the best.
It is a very basic recipe of eggs, bread, cheese, sausage, salt and dry mustard. Which we left out cause we didn't have any but it still turned out delicious!

This recipe is an easy one, and one that you need to make ahead of time. It would be perfect for your Christmas breakfast, you would just need to pop it in the oven Christmas morning. 

This was the first time Dave and I have made it since we have been married. We did a half batch since it usually goes in a 9x13 pan. 
I love how it turned out with the nice golden/brown sides. The sides were my favorite part!
Having this for breakfast made me feel closer to home for the holidays.
