How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°. Remove and discard casings from sausage. Cook sausage in a large skillet, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink; drain.

Step 2

Add onions, zucchini, salt and pepper. Sauté for 4 minutes. Stir in roasted peppers; drain and cool.

Step 3

Spread 4 cups Italian bread cubes in a lightly greased 13-by-9-inch baking dish. Top the layer of cubes with half of the sausage mixture and half of the cheese. Create another layer with remaining bread, sausage and cheese.

Step 4

Whisk together eggs and milk. Pour egg mixture over cheese. Cover and chill for 8 hours. Bake, covered, for at least 1 hour or until bubbly and hot.

Italian Brunch Casserole

This was good BUT it needed too much "twiking"! I halved the recipe & added mushrooms ,a combo of cheeses, had to add more egg mixture! I cooked it the hour recipe stated but then I uncovered it for additional 1/2 hour or it wouldn't have been thoroughly cooked!

We made this for our Italian Christmas brunch and it was good. Could use some more seasoning and maybe some mushrooms. I would say this is more on the lunch side than breakfast due to the peppers but very good.
