Brown the sausage. Break the bread apart into small pieces. These two steps are the longest part of the casserole prep. After these to things you'll mix all the ingredients together.
Pour mixture into a greased 9X13 casserole dish. You can do this two ways: Mix all the ingredients together including the eggs and then pour it into the casserole dish. Or, you can place all the dry ingredients in the casserole dish and then pour the egg/milk mixture on top. It really doesn't matter.
Bake and enjoy!
The one ingredient you might not have for this casserole is dry mustard. You can find this in the spice section of the grocery store. If you don't have it, it's not a deal breaker. You probably wouldn't even notice if it was missing.
