DIRECTIONS

  • Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish (I use my butter wrappers).
  • Cut the stale bread into cubes and place in baking dish.
  • Add shredded cheese, but keep a handful to sprinkle on top of the dish before you bake it (I put my cheese on top at the end of cooking instead).
  • Add meat and vegetables.
  • Separately beat the eggs and add milk or sour cream and add salt and pepper to your taste. (I used almond milk).
  • Mix well and pour over bread.
  • Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top and cover with foil.
  • Place the dish in the refrigerator overnight unless you are baking right away.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Bring the dish to room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  • Bake the strata for 40 to 45 minutes if you added milk and 35 minutes if you used sour cream.
  • Check the temperature of the strata in the middle. It should be 160°F The dish is ready when it does not jiggle in the middle when shaken. The color should be golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow it to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
  • You can also freeze for up to 3 months before baking. Still need to thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Then, bring strata to room temperature for about 30 minutes before baking.
