1 pound bulk Italian sausage
1 loaf sourdough bread (1 pound), cubed
1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
3 cups half-and-half cream
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Italian cheese blend
In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Place bread cubes in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Layer with mushrooms, onions and sausage.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, mustard and salt. Pour over top; sprinkle with cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 60-65 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. (Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly.) Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
Yield: 12 servings.
