Directions

  1. COAT 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. HEAT oil in large skillet over medium heat; add onions, mushrooms and red peppers and cook, stirring often, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add kale and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes longer. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in thyme, ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper, and nutmeg; remove from heat and set aside.
  3. PLACE half of bread cubes in even layer in baking dish, then top with half of vegetable mixture and half of cheese. Add remaining bread cubes, then remaining vegetables and cheese.
  4. WHISK together milk, eggs and remaining ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread, vegetables and cheese in baking dish. Cover with foil and press down slightly to help egg mixture soak into bread. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
