  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 yellow onion, chopped

  • 1 red sweet pepper, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 pound crusty white bread, cut into 3/4-inch cubes

  • 1 (14 ounce) package Hillshire Farm® Smoked Sausage, bias-sliced 1/2-inch thick

  • 3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided

  • ½ cup fresh parsley, coarsely chopped

  • 6 eggs

  • 2 cups half-and-half

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 3 Snipped fresh chives


  1. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Add onion, red pepper, and garlic. Cook and stir 6 to 8 minutes or until just browned.

  2. In a very large bowl, combine onion mixture, bread cubes, sausage, 2 1/2 cups cheese, and parsley. Transfer mixture to a greased 3-quart rectangular baking dish.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, salt, and black pepper. Pour evenly over the bread mixture. Press lightly with the back of a large spoon to moisten all of the ingredients. Cover with foil. Chill 4 to 24 hours.

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake, covered, for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 30 to 35 minutes more.

  5. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Let stand 15 minutes; serve warm. Garnish with chives, if desired.
