1-1/2 pounds sweet Italian sausage (discard casings)
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large garlic clove, minced
3/4 pound mushrooms, washed and sliced
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup dry white wine
3 large Swiss chard or spinach leaves, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
1-1/4 cups Cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
9 large eggs
1-1/4 cups milk
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard

In a large cast-iron skillet over moderate heat, brown sausage, stirring and breaking up lumps. Transfer sausage with slotted spoon to 9 x 13-inch glass baking dish, spreading evenly on the bottom. Discard fat from skillet. Melt butter in skillet and cook garlic and mushrooms that have been seasoned with salt and pepper. Cook until mushrooms give off liquid. Add wine and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until liquid has almost evaporated. Spread mushroom mixture over sausage and sprinkle with Swiss chard (or spinach) and cheese.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and mustard and pour over sausage mixture. Place in middle of 350-degree oven and bake hour or until set. Let cool 10 minutes. Cut into serving sizes and plate up!
