Tahoe Brunch Dish

Brunch is the best meal of the day.  Period.

Tahoe Brunch Dish
From the Dragonlady

12 slices White Bread
1/2 C. Butter, softened
2/3 lbs. fresh Mushrooms, trimmed and sliced
2 C. Yellow Onions, thinly sliced
1 1/2 lbs. mild Italian Sausage
1 lb. Cheddar Cheese, grated
5 large Eggs
2 1/2 C. Milk
3 t. Dijon Mustard
1 t. Dry Mustard
1 t. Ground Nutmeg
1 10 oz. Frozen Spinach
Salt and Pepper

In 10 - 12" skillet, melt butter and brown mushrooms and onions over medium heat for 5 - 8 minutes or until tender.  Season to taste with salt and pepper, set aside.

Cook sausage.

In a greased 11 x 7" shallow casserole dish, layer 1/2 of the bread, mushroom mixture, sausage, spinach, and cheese.  Repeat the layers, ending with the cheese, and pouring any of the juice from the mushroom mixture over the top.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix the eggs, milk, both mustards, nutmeg, 1 t. salt, and 1/8 t. pepper.  Pour carefully over the casserole.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake casserole for 1 hour or until bubbly.  Serve immediately.
