1-1/2 loaf day-old French bread, crusts removed
4 ounces low-fat grated Monterey Jack cheese

2 cups nonfat milk
1/2 cup white wine
1 tablespoon dry mustard
Pinch cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups light sour cream

Coat two 9-by-13-inch pans with nonstick spray. Lay bread in pans. Sprinkle with jack, Cheddar and Swiss cheese, and place sausage and green onions on top.
Beat egg substitute, milk, wine, mustard, cayenne and black pepper until foamy. Pour over ingredients in baking dishes. Refrigerate overnight.
Remove pans from refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bake covered for 1 hour. Remove from oven, spread with sour cream and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake uncovered until golden brown, about 10 more minutes.
