This should be easy to adapt. It is easy to make and yummy. I was asked for the recipe at my brunch a few times.
Sausage and Mushroom Strata
Both of these stratas are prepared the night before so you can just pop them in the oven in the morning.
8 ounces hot turkey Italian sausage 2 links 1 cup chopped onion 1 (16-ounce) package presliced mushrooms 2 packages 2 cups 1% low-fat milk rice milk 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 5 large eggs egg beaters 12 ounces day-old Italian or French bread, diagonally cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices, divided I used 10 slices Italian peasant bread Cooking spray 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided soy or whatever. Maybe not needed.
Remove casings from sausage. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned; stir to crumble. Remove from pan. Add onion and mushrooms to pan; cook 5 minutes or until onion is tender and moisture evaporates. Remove from heat. Add sausage; stir to combine. Combine milk and next 5 ingredients (through eggs) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Arrange half of bread in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon half of sausage mixture evenly over bread; sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese. Top with remaining bread. Spoon remaining sausage mixture over bread; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread mixture. Cover and chill overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35 minutes or until browned. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. 45 min maybe.
