Strata, a layered casserole of bread, flavorings, and egg custard, is a simple and delicious dish that's great for Sunday breakfast.

Ingredients

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

uncooked scallion(s)

3 oz, thinly sliced

low-fat milk

2 cup(s)

egg(s)

2 large

egg white(s)

3 large

Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp

table salt

¼ tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground

grated Parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
