The hardest part of this dish is figuring out what to call it ! It's like a quiche that fell into bread pudding.

 I'm used to cooking for a large hungry family, but they have all grown and moved on so I'm trying to cook smaller portions but this is still a large dish that will feed me for 3-4 days

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of ingredients
sausage, I'm using hot breakfast sausage but you can use plain or any you like
eggs, 4 in my case
can of cheddar soup
 milk
 green peppers
 onions
 cheese, I''m using velveeta and sliced cheddar. sorry they were to shy for the pic
 Bread, I'm using 4 day old sandwich rolls but any substantial bread you can cube will work ( I don't recommend white sandwich bread but it "could" be used)

 This will be enough for a medium sized casserole dish for a larger 9x12 dish I would double the eggs, soup and milk and add a couple more rolls

Step 2: Sausage

brown your sausage, peppers and onions in a skillet until the meat has lost its pink color, drain and allow to cool slightly.
 While the sausage is cooking and cooling do the next 3 steps

Step 3: Cube it

cut your bread of choice into smallish cubes, you need enough to loosely fill your casserole or other oven safe dish

Step 4: Custards next stand

eggs and milk is a basic custard, here we are beating 4 eggs, 1/2 pint of milk and a can of condensed cheese soup until combined, is there such a thing as a cheese custard ? Maybe one of the trained chefs in my family can tell me

Step 5: Make it cheesy 1

I took about an inch slice of velveeta and cubed it

Step 6: Mix it up

take your cheese and cooled sausage mix and stir it into the cubed bread, pour the egg mixture over everything and using a fork make sure every thing is submerged. Allow it to sit for a couple minutes and then pop into a 350f oven for 40minutes

Step 7: Make it cheesy 2

after about 30-35 minutes pull the dish out and cover the top with sliced cheese, return to the oven for 15-20 minutes

Cheese Custard is a real thing and it comes in several varieties and can be used many ways.

Thank you Oil, I was pretty sure there was and it probably has some exotic sounding chef term!
