Directions: Butter a 13×9 ceramic or glass baking dish. Whisk first seven ingredients in a large bowl, sprinkle generously with pepper. Set aside. Place sausage in a large, nonstick skillet, push to 1 side. Add the bell pepper on the other side of the skillet. Sauté over high heat, breaking up the sausages with a fork, until the sausage is cooked through and bell peppers are brown in spots, about seven minutes. Arrange half of the bread slices in prepared dish. Pour half of the egg mixture over. Sprinkle with half of the cheese, then half of the sausage/pepper mixture. Repeat layering. Let stand 20 minutes, occasionally pressing on bread to submerge. (Or, refrigerate overnight). Bake the strata in 350 degree oven until puffed and brown, about one hour. Cool slightly.
