In a large skillet heat oil. Add mushrooms, sweet pepper and onion to skillet; cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until just tender, stirring frequently.Advertisement
Lightly grease a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Arrange half the bread cubes in an even layer in prepared dish. Top with half the sausage, half the mushroom mixture and half the cheese. Repeat layers.
In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk and oregano. Slowly pour over the layered mixture in dish. Press down lightly with the back of a large spoon. Cover and chill for 2 hours or up to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake casserole, uncovered, about 50 minutes or until nearly set and lightly browned on top (may see some liquid egg in center of casserole). Let stand 10 minutes before serving (egg mixture will set upon standing). Cut into 6 pieces.
