  Unsalted margarine 1 Tablespoon
  Yellow onion 1 Small, chopped
  Stalk celery 1 Small, chopped
  Sweet green pepper 1⁄2 Small, cored, seeded, and chopped
  Non-stick cooking spray 2 Tablespoon
  Day old whole wheat bread slice 8 , cut in half diagonally
  Shredded low sodium swiss cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

In a heavy 7 inch skillet, melt the margarine over moderate heat; add the onion, celery, and green pepper, and cook until the onion is soft about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, lightly coat an 8"x 8"x 2" baking pan with the cooking spray and arrange the bread, overlapping the slices, in the bottom.
Spoon the vegetable mixture evenly over the bread.
Sprinkle with the Swiss cheese and Parmesan cheese.
In a small bowl, lightly whisk the egg and egg whites together; blend in the milk, mustard, paprika, and cayenne pepper.
Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread slices.
Cover the casserole with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate for 1 to 3 hours.
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Remove the casserole from the refrigerator, uncover it, and let it stand for 15 minutes.
Bake for 40 minutes or until lightly browned and set like a custard.
