  • Spray a 7x11-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • Spread half of the bread cubes evenly on the bottom.
  • top with half of the cubed ham, bell peppers, green onions, and mozzarella cheese.
  • Spread remaining bread cubes evenly over cheese and top with remaining ham, peppers, onions, and cheese.
  • In a blender, process milk, eggs, mustard, pepper, hot sauce, and Gorgonzola until cheese is finely crumbled.
