Gay's Brie-and-Sausage Breakfast Casserole

1 (8 oz) round Brie
1 pound ground regular or hot pork sausage
6 white sandwich bread slices
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
7 large eggs, divided
3 cups whipping cream, divided
2 cups fat-free milk
1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage or 1 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Garnishes:  chopped green onions, shaved Parmesan cheese

Trim rind from Brie, and discard; cut cheese into cubes, and set aside.

Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until it
crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well.

Cut crusts from bread slices, and place crusts evenly in bottom of a lightly
greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish.  Layer evenly with bread slices, sausage,
Brie, and Parmesan cheese.

Whisk together 5 eggs, 2 cups whipping cream, and next 4 ingredients; pour
evenly over cheeses.  Cover and chill mixture for 8 hours.

Whisk together remaining 2 eggs and remaining 1 cup whipping cream; pour
evenly over chilled mixture.

Bake at 350  for 1 hour or until casserole is set.  Garnish, if desired.
