Hi Kobmob,Because this recipe uses day old bread, preparing it the night before should be fine. Just be sure to cover it tightly.Sue StetzelOnline Community ManagerTaste of Home Magazine

Can this be made the night before and cooked in the morning?

This was delicious and very moist and fluffy! I changed the bake time to an hour and five minutes at 375?.

Substituted ground turkey for the pork.

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.
