In a very large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and pepper. Add English muffin cubes; stir to coat.
Stir in sausage and 1-1/2 cups cheese. Pour into a greased 13-inch x 9-inch x 2-inch baking dish.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350°F for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
