Challah! Egg & Cheese Casserole

This is my Grammy's Christmas Egg & Cheese Casserole (with my own little addition)

1 loaf fresh challah bread, torn into pieces
18 large eggs, scrambled
whole milk, about 5-6 cups
4 cups sharp shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper, to taste

Heat oven to 375. Arrange torn bread in 9 x 9 buttered pan and sprinkle/mix in cheese. Mix eggs, milk, s & p, and pour over bread and cheese. Press down and let set to soak in 30 min in fridge. (If the bread looks dry, add more egg and milk) Bake 30 minutes or until browned, set in the middle and puffy. (Bake on a cookie sheet to avoid any spills in the oven.)

(Optional) Add one combo of the following for extra flavor:
cooked crumbled breakfast sausage
sauteed mushrooms, swiss cheese and thyme
sauteed red onions and spinach
cooked bacon and diced potatoes
diced tomatoes and fresh basil
