1Preheat oven to 375 degree F...if baking right away, if not baking until the next morning, take out of fridge 30 minutes in advance, before baking.
2In a bowl beat eggs, milk, salt & pepper, set aside.
3Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non stick cooking spray or grease with butter.
Break bread into pieces and place in bottom of dish.
4Saute onion and garlic ( optional ) I like to cook onion until just translucent. You can put in raw if you like.
To casserole, sprinkle with spinach, peppers, onion and garlic.
5Then add ham...toss all ingredients.
6Pour egg mixture evenly over bread mixture. If bread floats, pushed down into egg, so everything is coated.
7Top with cheese...cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
8Remove foil and continue baking another 15 - 25 minutes until golden.
9Let sit for 10 minutes before cutting...
