2 pounds bulk Italian sausage

2 medium green peppers, coarsely chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

8 large eggs

2 cups whole milk

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons white pepper

2 teaspoons ground mustard

How to make it

In a large skillet, cook the sausage, green peppers and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and mustard. Stir in the sausage mixture, bread, spinach, cheeses and zucchini.

Transfer mixture to a greased 13×9-in. baking dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Cover and bake at 350° for 40 minutes. Uncover; bake 40-45 minutes longer or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Yield: 10-12 servings.
