"Hi Kobmob,

Because this recipe uses day old bread, preparing it the night before should be fine. Just be sure to cover it tightly.

"I haven't tried the recipe, but I wonder about substituting turkey links instead of pork sausage and using am egg substitute. I wonder if in future recipes where healthy substitures can be used, you would would show that, too. Thanks"

"Good! I used wheat bread for the bread cubes. The pepper jack cheese made it somewhat spicy, my 1 year old would only have a few bites. My DH & I loved it though. I think for kids though I would just omit the pepper jack and double the cheddar."
