Beat eggs, milk, salt and mustard into a bowl.
Shred your bread into pieces or cube.
Layer bread cubes, then sausage, then fold in cheese into a 9 x 13 baking dish pour mixture on top then sprinkle extra cheese and paprika on top
and refrigerate overnight.

*this is a family tradition for us.* The mess is all over the day before and you just pop it in the oven when you wake up on Christmas morning.
I have substituted extra asparagus when I didn’t use any meats.
You can also double this recipe, use a larger baking dish and keep layering the ingredients.
