12 eggs, beaten
9 slices bread, crusts removed, cut into 1/2 inch squares
4 tablespoons butter, cut into small cubes
2 1/2 cups milk
6 scallions, chopped, including green tops
1/2 bell pepper, chopped fine
2 pounds pork sausage, browned, drained and crumbled
2 C grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

This is our traditional family breakfast every Thanksgiving morning and Christmas morning. With all the hustle and bustle going on for the holiday meal, it's nice to have at least breakfast done in advance!
