Swiss cheese strata
Whole wheat bread
5 slice(s), quartered
Roasted red peppers (packed in water)
¾ cup(s), diced
Low-fat Swiss cheese
½ cup(s), shredded
3 oz, thinly sliced
¼ tsp, freshly ground
Grated Parmesan cheese
- Spray a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick spray. Arrange the bread pieces in the bottom of the baking dish, overlapping them slightly. Scatter the red peppers, Swiss cheese, and scallions on top.
- Whisk together the milk, eggs, egg whites, Parmesan cheese, mustard, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Pour over the bread and let stand for at least 20 minutes, or cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.
- Place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Bake the strata until golden and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 40–45 minutes.
- Let stand 10 minutes, then serve hot. Yields 1/6 of casserole per serving.
