Sunrise Squares

   One of the nice things about being part of a large family is passing around the extras. We may have a bunch of tomatoes and pass them on to someone else, and in turn things often get passed on to us, like when my sister-in-law has happy hens. When the girls are happy, there are eggs for all.
   A while back when the hens were putting out oodles of eggs, one of my husbands co-workers passed me on a few recipes to help make the most of them. The favorite by far, is called Sunrise Squares. I could make a pan of this almost weekly, and those boys would be right fine. It's very easy and doesn't take many ingredients.

Sunrise Squares
1 lb. roll sausage
2 slices bread, torn in 1/4 in pieces
1/2 - 3/4 cup diced green and/or red peppers
8 oz. shredded cheese
6 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 t. dry mustard (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Crumble and cook sausage in skillet over medium heat until browned. Drain. 

Spread bread cubes in greased 11.5x8" baking dish, top with cooked sausage, peppers and cheese. 

Whisk eggs, milk, salt and mustard until well blended; pour over cheese. 
Bake 30 to 40 minutes until set. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting into squares.
 Serve hot. Makes 6 servings. Reheats very well.
