Serves 8

This recipe should be prepared 24 hrs in advance.

3 Tablespoons butter, softened
12 slices white bread, crusts removed
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, trimmed, sliced
2 cups thinly sliced yellow onions
salt, pepper
1.5 pounds mild Italian sausage
1 pound Cheddar cheese, grated
5 large eggs
2.5 cups milk
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

1. Butter the bread with the 3 tablespoons softened butter
and set aside.  In 10-inch skillet, melt the 1/2 cup butter;
brown the mushrooms and onions over medium heat for 5 to 8
minutes or until tender.  Season to taste with salt and
pepper.  Set aside.

2. Cook the sausage, drain well and crumble into bite-sized pieces.
Grease an 11x7 inch baking dish; add and layer half of the bread,
mushroom mixture, sausage, and cheese.  Repeat the layers, ending
with the cheese.

3. Mix the eggs, milk, both mustards, nutmeg, 1 teaspoon salt
and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Pour
over the sausage and cheese casserole.  Cover the casserole
and refrigerate overnight.

4. Heat oven to 350 degrees.  When ready to bake, sprinkle the
parsley evenly over the top of the casserole; bake uncovered
for 1 hour or until bubbly.  Serve immediately.
