1 lb 99% ground turkey
1 tbs pork & poultry seasoning
8-10 pieces center cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 large eggs
2 2/3 cups 1% milk
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 tsp ground dry mustard
1 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
12 oz Italian bread, cubed into 1/2" pieces
1 cup light shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
minced fresh parsley, for garnish
chopped fresh chives, for garnish
dollop sour cream, for garnish (points not included)
In a large skillet, brown and crumble turkey until cooked. Add it poultry seasoning. Drain and set aside.
Use a bread knife to cube Italian bread into 1/2" pieces, then set aside. Combine shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheeses, then set aside.
To a large mixing bowl, add eggs, milk, salt, dry mustard, dried parsley, black pepper and paprika. Whisk until combined.
Add cubed bread pieces to bottom of a 9x13" baking pan. Top with crumbled turkey, bacon, and 3/4 of the cheeses. Pour egg custard over the top, using a wooden spoon to gently push any un-soaked bread down into the custard. Sprinkle with remaining shredded cheeses.
Cover pan with foil and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from refrigerator, uncover, and let sit at room temperature while oven preheats to 350 degrees F. Bake, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Serve hot, topped with garnishes if desired.
