2 tsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Lightly spray a 1.5L (6-cup) capacity baking dish with oil.
  2. Arrange half the bread over base of prepared dish. Top with half each of the ham, shallots, zucchini and cheese. Repeat layering with remaining bread, ham, shallots, zucchini and cheese.
  3. Whisk milk, eggs, mustard and paprika in a large jug until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Pour milk mixture over bread mixture. Set aside for 5 minutes to soak.

Notes

TIP: Strata is best eaten on the day it is made but you could store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 day. Wrap in foil and heat for 10–15 minutes in an oven preheated to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced.
