  • 1/2 lb (250 g) bulk hot pork sausage
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter or margarine
  • 1 pkg (300 g) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to drain or 1/2 lb (250 g) leaf spinach
  • 1 lb (500 g) small zucchini, sliced (2 cups/500 mL)
  • 2 medium green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 10 slices white bread
  • 7 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) low-fat milk
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground mustard

    Grease rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches. Cook sausage in 12-inch skillet over medium heat 7 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink; drain. Melt butter in same skillet over medium-high heat. Cook spinach, zucchini, bell peppers and onion in butter about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until zucchini is crisp-tender.

    Break each bread slice into 4 pieces. Layer sausage, vegetables and bread in pan. Beat eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper with hand beater or wire whisk until blended; pour over bread. Sprinkle cheeses over top. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 325ºF. Cover and bake 30 minutes. Uncover and bake about 45 minutes longer or until top is golden brown and knife inserted in centre comes out clean.

  • Health Twist: Substitute turkey sausage for one or both of the pork sausages, and you will slash fat.
  • Tip: Bulk pork sausage is the raw meat that hasn't been stuffed into the casing. If you can't find it, you can buy raw sausages, slit the casing with a knife and remove the meat.
