Sausage Strata

Ingredients

1 12-oz package Odom’s Tennessee Pride Country Sausage (Mild)
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 4-oz. cans sliced mushrooms, drained
1 10-oz. box chopped frozen spinach, thawed, squeezed dry
1½ teaspoons salt (divided)
½ teaspoon black pepper (divided)
8 cups cubed Italian bread, from a 1 pound loaf
3 cups finely shredded pizza cheese
10 eggs
3 cups whole milk

Directions

Crumble sausage in a very large skillet. Cook until it starts to lose its pink color; add onions and mushrooms; cook for 5 minutes.

Add garlic and spinach and cook an additional 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper, stir and set aside.

Place 4 cups of bread cubes in bottom of 4 quart baking dish. Sprinkle half of the cheese over bread, then top with half the sausage mixture. Repeat layering.

Whisk milk, eggs, and remaining salt and pepper in large bowl and pour evenly over bread-sausage-cheese layers. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake uncovered until puffed, golden brown and cooked through, 40-45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Serving suggestion: for a hectic holiday morning breakfast, add a mixed fruit cup and coffee for a complete meal!
