Overnight Egg Casserole

I'm letting you in on a little Smith family tradition. This egg casserole reminds me of waking up on Christmas morning at my grandparent's house in Chicago. When I taste it, it takes me right back there...but if you've never had it, you'll be sold in the first bite & nibbling the crispy edges until it's put away. The sage sausage, english muffins, cheese...just trust me & do it ok? Besides, you make it the night before & it bakes away while you open gifts!


1 lb. Jimmy Dean sage breakfast sausage
9 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1 1/4 tsp. salt
3 c. milk
1 package of English Muffins, diced in 1 inch cubes
1 (10 oz.) pkg. grated cheddar cheese
Dash of nutmeg (optional)
1-2 big shakes Worcestershire sauce
