Ingredients

1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4
cup chopped red onion
1/2
cup chopped red bell pepper
1
tablespoon finely chopped garlic (about 4 cloves)
2
cups packed fresh baby spinach, coarsely chopped
6
cups cubed (1-inch) French baguette
1 1/2
cups crumbled feta cheese (6 oz)
1/2
cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1
jar (6 oz) Progresso™ marinated artichoke hearts, drained well and coarsely chopped
1/3
cup pitted kalamata olives, halved
1/4
cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained, chopped
10
eggs
2
cups milk
1/2
teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray. In 8-inch nonstick pan, heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Cook onion, bell pepper and garlic in oil 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly softened. Add spinach, and cook about 1 minute or until starting to wilt.
  • 2 In baking dish, layer half of the baguette, 1 cup of the feta cheese, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese, the bell pepper mixture, artichokes, olives and sun-dried tomato. Layer remaining baguette, and top with remaining 1/2 cup feta cheese. In large bowl, beat eggs and milk with whisk; beat in pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Pour over bread mixture, pressing down slightly. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
  • 3 Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and center is just set. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
Tips  

Arugula or baby kale would also work as a substitute to spinach in this recipe.

Assemble, cover and refrigerate this bake the night before so it’s ready to uncover and pop in the oven in the morning. You may need to add an additional 5 to 10 minutes to bake time.
