California Strata

2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 cup diced onions
1/2 cup butter
1 pound italian sausage
5 whole eggs
2 1/2 cups milk
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste
nutmeg to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsely
12 slices white bread with crusts removed
4 cups grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350.

Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Saute mushrooms and onions in butter until tender.

Cook sausage until done. Combine eggs, milk, mustard, spices and parsley and reserve.

Place bread in baking dish covering bottom completely.

Place half of mushroom mixture over bread then place half of sausage and cheese over that. Repeat layers again.

Pour egg mixture over all. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 2 to 4 hours so bread soaks up everything.

Bake for 1 hour or until bubbly.

Let sit about 10 minutes before dishing out.
