cheese strata

8 slices day old bread (white)
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese
4 eggs
2 1/2 cups milk
1 TBS onion, chopped fine
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp mustard
1 lb sausage, browned

Trim crust from 5 slices, cut in half diagonally. Use trimmings and remaining 3 slices to cover bottom of an 8" or 9" square pan. Top with 1/2 of the cheese and 1/2 of the sausage and then the remaining cheese. Arrange 10 trimmed bread triangles in 2 rows with points overlapping bases of proceeding triangle. Beat eggs and blend remaining ingredients with a dash of pepper. Pour over bread. Squish bread down so it is soaked. Cover. Let stan 1 hour room temperature or overnight in the fridge. Bake at 325 for 1 hour or until knife comes out clean!
