Need a simple and delicious breakfast dish to serve overnight guests?  Try this easy to make casserole - you can put it together the night before and just pop it in the oven about 45 minutes before you're ready to serve.

1/2 pound bulk pork sausage

12 slices Pepperidge Farm® White Sandwich Bread, cut into cubes (about 6 cups)
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese  (about 6 ounces)
1 cup Pace® Picante Sauce
4 eggs
3/4 cup milk

Cook the sausage in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.
Spoon the sausage into a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Top with the bread cubes and cheese. Beat the picante sauce, eggs and milk in a medium bowl with a fork or whisk. Pour the picante sauce mixture over the bread mixture.  Stir and press the bread mixture into the picante sauce mixture to coat.  Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
Heat the oven to 350°F.  Uncover the baking dish.
Bake for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
