DIRECTIONS

  • Oil or butter a deep 9- or 10-inch baking dish.
  • Slice the bread about ½-inch thick; arrange 3 equal alternating layers of the bread, turkey, bacon, tomato, and cheese in the baking dish.
  • Cut or tear the bread slices if needed to make snug layers.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk, sage, salt, and cayenne.
  • Pour the liquid mixture over the bread mixture.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours to overnight.
  • Remove the strata from the refrigerator 20-30 minutes before you plan to bake it.
  • Preheat oven to 350°; bake the strata for 50-55 minutes until puffed, golden brown, and lightly set in the center; serve hot.
