  6. Top with 1/2 of spinach/onion mixture. Top with shrimp.
  7. Then add half of Parmesan cheese.

  9. Blend eggs, milk, nutmeg and pepper in a bowl.
  10. Pour milk/egg mixture over top of bread in baking dish. Push bread down to contact with milk.
  11. Refrigerate, covered, for at least 2 hours so the milk/egg will soak into the bread.

Based on several recipes from the Internet.
I served it for a simple Thanksgiving dinner.

It's also good with diced cooked ham or fried bacon or pancetta.
If frying, do that first, and save 2 T. of grease to fry onions in place of olive oil.
