Steps:
Preheat oven to 350° F. Layer croissant pieces in a lightly greased 9×13-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese. Top with spinach. Beat eggs, add milk, remaining 1 cup of cheese, hot sauce, Worcestershire and herbs; pour over ingredients in baking pan.

Cover pan loosely with foil sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and rotate pan for more even baking. Bake for 20-30 minutes more until puffed and golden (check occasionally and cover with foil if top is browning too quickly), until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Slice into 8 pieces and serve.  Serve with breakfast sausage and a broiled cheesy tomato.
