Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 large loaf of French Bread
1 dozen eggs
at least 1 quart of milk
1 pound sweet Italian sausage without casing
¾ pound total of cheese- I use a mix of fontina, Swiss, and munster, but you can use whatever you like

Directions:
Directions:
1. Using day-old bread, cut the bread into ½ inch chunks.
2. Grate all the cheese.
3. Sauté the sausage meat, and drain any excess liquid.
4. Crack all 12 eggs into a large bowl. While whisking continuously, slowly add milk until the mixture is a pale yellow.
5. Grease a large baking dish and layer bread, sausage, and cheese.
6. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the top. Cover and refrigerate.
7. Let it sit for at least one hour, if not overnight.
8. Bake at 350º for about 45 minutes. Test for doneness, and then uncover and bake for 10-15 minutes more to brown the top.

Personal Notes:
This is a great make-ahead recipe. We often ate this Christmas morning growing up and now I make it for my family. You can prepare the night before, put it in the oven when you wake up, and by the time presents are open it is ready!
