1 lb. bulk Italian sausage
1 loaf (1 lb.) sourdough bread, cubed
1 jar (4 1/2 oz.) sliced mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
3 cups half-and-half cream
1 tsp. ground mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Italian cheese blend
In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Place bread cubes in a greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Layer with mushrooms, onions and sausage. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, mustard and salt. Pour over top; sprinkle with cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. (Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly.) Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
