Spinach, Bacon and Cheese Strata

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Makin Bacon

Adapted from WeightWatchers - a Strata is sort of like an omlette, and sort of like a quiche. It's cooked stovetop, and then broiled in the oven - so if you don't have an oven-proof skillet, cover the handle with aluminum foil before broiling! Weight Watchers Points per slice: 4

This recipe was well received. Increased the bacon & added 1 more slice of bread. Decreased the salt & cheese. Added in some green peppers, banana peppers, tomatoes & zucchini. Turned out great & was very tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and cook, stirring, until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Add onion sauté until vegetable are soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add spinach and fold until wilted. Remove vegetables from pan and set aside.
  2. Preheat broiler.
  3. Off heat, coat same skillet with cooking spray. Arrange bread slices tightly in bottom of skillet.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, EggBeaters, milk, mustard, salt and pepper; pour over bread and allow milk mixture to soak in entirely (like when you make French toast). Sprinkle bread with 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese.
  5. Place skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Cook, shaking pan frequently to promote even cooking, until almost cooked through to the top, about 4 or 5 minutes.
  6. Place skillet under broiler to set eggs, about 2 minutes. Remove skillet from broiler; top with bacon-vegetable mixture, cheddar cheese and remaining tablespoon of Parmesan cheese. Place skillet under broiler again until cheese melts, about 1 to 2 minutes. Slice into 6 pieces and serve. Yields 1 piece per serving.
