Bacon, Goat Cheese and Strawberry Breakfast Strata with Natural Rice Vinegar Reduction

Ingredient List

  • 6 oz Bacon, raw
  • 8 oz Skim Milk
  • 6 Tbsp, divided Nakano Natural Rice Vinegar
  • 8 oz Egg Whites
  • ¼ tsp Nutmeg, ground
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon, ground
  • 1.5 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper, ground
  • ½ cup Reduced fat Goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup, divided Strawberries, diced
  • 8 oz Sourdough bread, ½” cubes
  • ¾ cup Powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Place bacon on a lined cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. Bacon should be cooked through, but still pale pink and chewy. Dice bacon into ½” pieces. Bacon will finish cooking once entire strata is baked. Reduce oven temperature to 300ºF.
  2. Prepare an 8” spring form pan for baking. Wrap bottom insert with plastic wrap. Place bottom insert into the pan and lock into place. Line the interior of the pan with additional plastic wrap. This will keep the eggs white mixture from leaking. Spray inside of pan with nonstick spray.
  3. In a 4-quart pot, add milk and 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar and scald. While milk is scalding, place egg whites, spices and seasonings, goat cheese, ¾ cup of strawberries, and ½ of bacon.
  4. Pour hot milk-vinegar mixture over the bread mixture and toss well. Place immediately into spring form pan and place on a cookie cheese and bake at 300ºF for about 45 minutes, or until eggs are totally set. Let sit for 10-15 minutes before serving.
  5. In a small bowl, combine ¼ cup of rice vinegar and powdered sugar and mix well. Drizzle over strata and cut into 8 pieces.
