Butter a 9x13-inch baking dish. Arrange half of the bread in the dish in a single layer; set aside.

Beat eggs in a large bowl, then whisk in milk, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir in green onions. Pour half of the egg mixture over bread and sprinkle with goat cheese. Layer mushrooms and spinach on top of goat cheese. Cover with remaining bread and pour over remaining egg mixture. Gently press bread with the back of a large spoon to make sure that each slice is well covered with the egg mixture. Cover the baking dish and refrigerate overnight.

When you're ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F. Remove the baking dish from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature at least 15 minutes to remove the chill. Uncover the dish and bake until golden brown and firm, 55 to 60 minutes.
