DIRECTIONS

  • Over medium heat in large skillet, heat sausage, stirring with wooden spoon to crumble, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Strain sausage of fat, and set aside.
  • Return skillet to medium heat; add onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring, until golden, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Add garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Stir in parsley, salt, and a good grind of black pepper.
  • Add sausage and stir to combine; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs until foamy.
  • Add milk and blend.
  • Add 1 teaspoon salt and a grind of black pepper.
  • To assemble: lightly coat a 2 quart shallow baking dish with oil.
  • Use half the bread slices to make a single layer; cut, if necessary, so they fit in tightly together.
  • Spoon sausage mixture over bread; sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese.
  • Make a second layer of bread, and pour the egg mixture evenly across, using a spatula to press down on the bread for even absorption.
  • Top with remaining cheese.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
  • Uncover strata and bake until puffed and browned, about 45 minutes.
