Ingredients You'll Need

Optional - 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper

Cut bread into cubes. Grease 9" x 12" pan. Make a layer in the pan of about 5 of the slices worth of bread.
Spread 1/2 of the butter, 2 cups of cheese, and 1/2 of the meat over the bread. (Include red pepper if using.)
Layer on the rest of the bread and the butter, cheese and meat.
Beat together eggs, milk, salt and mustard. Pour on top of other ingredients in the casserole.
